Our Co-Founder Bohan Qiu takes us through a journey and discover the urban solitude of a Hong Kong evening.
On a sunny early autumn Sunday afternoon in Hong Kong, we got together with our dear TOTEM friends and family and celebrated the launch of the artist collaboration between Gedvile Bunikyte and TOTEM COLLECTIVE. Here’s what happened!
This Autumn, TOTEM COLLECTIVE had a chance to collaborate with a very unique artist in Hong Kong – Gedvile Bunikyte, and created a collection of beautifully hand-painted TOTEM Patches and clutches. Each of them being completely unique, all the pieces were true to the artist’s artistic practice and ideologies, and presented a perfect example of wearable art of our time and age.
TOTEM COLLECTIVE collaborated with Spanish Sculptor/Artist/Designer Carla Cascales Alimbau and we were absolutely stunned by her powerfully feminine and sensually enlightening work.
In the world where nobody can really be defined anymore, the multi-talented Danish model/artist/self-portrait photographer/muse Xenia Emily is definitely one to make you want to dig even deeper than the surface.
Turn of a corner, door of a garage, mirrors of a toyota, Canadian photographer Kyle Jeffers can turn all those things into breathtaking photographs that makes you do the screencap.
TOTEM COLLECTIVE and Henrik Vibskov held a day-time party in Copenhagen last week to celebrate the brand launching in the Legendary Danish Design Boutique. Check out some of the sickest outfits and the coolest attitudes we spotted at the event, and see what happened...

We followed Moroccan Photographer Abdela Igmirien to the neighbourhood of Chai Wan in Hong Kong and talked about where to instagram, why he lives in Hong Kong, and how the Islamic part of China continues to fascinate him.
We speak to the designer of our latest BACKPACK 01, who is also the mastermind behind Wiboe Projects, a newly founded brand based in Paris focusing on menswear, leatherwear and ceramics. This ex-Loewe-Head-of-Bag-Design talks to us about how she designs to solve problems, and how her sculptural oversized jackets and her outerspace-like ceramic pieces into the same universe.

On the almost unheard of Danish island of Lolland, TOTEM COLLECTIVE visited the old residence of painter, sculptor, and enfant terrible of Denmark's art history -- Richard Winther, and what he had created inside is mind-blowing and absolutely out of this world.
