Stolen is an ode to feminine allure in all its strength and fragility. Deriving its name from the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, who proposed that taking more than what is needed equates to stealing, Stolen stands for pure and timeless design.
"If I take anything that I do not need for my own immediate use, and keep it, I thieve it from somebody else … A thing not originally stolen must nevertheless be classified stolen property, if one possesses it without needing it." - Mahatma Gandhi
The Singapore-based womenswear label was founded in 2007 by Elyn Wong. A Visual Communications graduate and former Creative Group Head at Ogilvy & Mather, Elyn's journey into fashion was an unconventional one. Her designs are informed by her passion for architecture - particularly that of the Brutalist movement - and installation art, adopting a structured rather than decorative form.
More than a clothing label, Stolen actively pursues non-fashion projects and has created installations that have exhibited in Singapore, New York, Beijing, London and Milan.
The brand was a winner in the CFDA’s Fashion Futures 2.0 Program, Zalora Style Award, Designer of the Year 2018 and has been featured in digital and print publications including Wallpaper Magazine, Monocle, Women’s Wear Daily and Refinery29. Designer Elyn was nominated as the Great Women of Our Time Award by Singapore Women's Weekly and Elyn was also the winner for Lancome's Trendsetter Award.
With Stolen's dynamic hybrid fashion x art DNA, the brand and Designer, Elyn is seen invited regularly to collaborate with international brands such as Audemars Piguet, Mercedes Benz, Villeroy&Boch, CIMB Bank, APPLE, Aesop.
