Greatest Hits: Whooli Chen X H&M
26 July 2023
As August comes around, we are taking a moment to reflect on the first half of 2022 and recall some of our most beloved projects. To get the ball rolling, let's take a closer look at Whooli Chen's collaboration with H&M, but first, let's set the scene... Years ago, a mischievous red fox basked in the sun, peacefully inhaling the world. Unbeknownst to the fox, an aspiring illustrator was watching with wonder and a strong desire for creativity. Fast forward, we introduce you to Whooli, a whimsical pseudonym inspired by the Taiwanese word for fox.
Over the years we have completely fallen in love with Whooli's dreamlike state of illustration, buzzing with a sense of nostalgia and magic. This collection saw her illustrations printed over a variety of clothing items including dresses, jumpers, a jumpsuit, tracksuit bottoms, leggings, pyjamas, bags, scrunchies and other various accessories, bringing to life the playful nature of her designs.
H&M said in an article about the collaboration: "With a colour palette of warm, soft neutrals and black as a contrast, plus greens, muted pink, turquoise, navy and pop colour accents, the magic of nature and wildlife really comes to life." Whooli added: "I imagined children wandering around a foggy forest filled with flowers and furry animals or heading out on an expedition in search of wild creatures."
