ON PEDDER CELEBRATES THE ART OF DOING NOTHING WITH ARTIST CHARLENE MAN


Leading a colourful, light-hearted yet spirited exploration of the art and love of the simple things in life, On Pedder teams up with Hong Kong-based artist Charlene Man to present Joy of Being Lazy.

Inspired by hygge (pronounced “hoo-ga”) – the time honoured Danish concept revolves around practicing deliberate moments of cosy comfort to improve overall contentment and wellbeing – Joy of Being Lazy indulges in cheerful relaxation by toying the fine line between leisure and laziness. From now until April 30, experience Charlene’s quirky-cute shrines featuring a playful “offering box” and the exotic goddess of laziness, visitors are encouraged to pay homage by shredding their to-do lists.

“The ‘laziness’ concept actually came about when I had to quit my job in Hong Kong and help my parents move house in the UK,” Charlene explains.  “At that time, I was trying to figure out how to make freelance illustration work sustainable.  My mom would always tell me to look for a full-time job and ‘not be lazy.’  Her words inspired me to make the concept of being lazy my full-time job.  I decided it was my mission to promote laziness as a creed.”

In addition to Charlene’s “shrines” making their debut at On Pedder, her whimsical illustrations will be featured on delightfully designed stationary and a natural canvas carryall tote – inspired by artist Georges Surat – available exclusively at On Pedder.

With “home” as the setting and “casual” as the style for SS21, the hygge-led “comfort dressing”  trend is translated into the wardrobe as cosy slip-ons, easy flats and slouchy, soft silhouettes. Shop the latest deliveries in store and online.
