CAFUNÉ

HONG KONG・Handbag/Women's

Cafuné is a modern accessories label founded by lifelong friends Queenie Fan and Day Lau in 2015. Approaching design as a gentle and intimate affair, Cafuné wishes to reconsider the notion of luxury and define it in terms of emotion and attachment between wearers and the products. At the centre of Cafuné is a strong attention to construction and details, and devotion in celebrating the materials and craftsmanship that go behind every product. Cafuné is a global brand based in Hong Kong, with aims to grow organically and expand internationally.
The co-founders have been friends since a young age. Growing up together, both had an interest in design, fashion and culture. This prompted them to promise each other that they would start a brand together one day before parting ways to study abroad.
Queenie completed her studies in the U.S and went on to work as an accessories designer for internationally renowned brands including 3.1 Phillip Lim, Coach and Rag & Bone. Day studied in the UK and worked as a specialist communications consultant upon returning to Hong Kong. The two reconnected when Queenie moved back to Hong Kong in June 2015. Having gained valuable work experience and an international exposure, Queenie and Day decided it is the perfect time to establish their own label.
