On Set | Mae Tan with Kenzo

By T: The New York Times Style Magazine

Skate culture has somewhat taken over the fashion landscape. To be specific, the way skaters dress has gripped local culture – and youngsters are borrowing from it unapologetically. 

To Mae Tan, marketing creative at multi-label fashion store, Surrender, skate culture has wormed its way right into the heart of her personality. But it all started from an acute observation. "I think having a brother who skates definitely influenced my style. I'm constantly seeing oversized T-shirts, graphic prints, chinos and sneakers." 

When we met her, Tan was clad in a baggy long-sleeved T-shirt, overalls and Kenzo Move sneakers. Kenzo was a surprising choice for skater streetwear, but it made sense for Tan to settle on a designer brand. 

"My outfits are always a mix of street style and a bit of high-end luxury like Kenzo," she chirps. Tan has managed to reconcile her former self with a newfound infatuation with skater style. "I like to pair them up together." 


The Kenzo Move sneakers will be available at Kenzo's boutique at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands from 25th September onwards.
