If only we can see things like a child

小孩看待事物的方式,真是讓人哭笑不得,這是兒子出生以後我才察覺的事情。到了3歲的年紀,跟兒子走在街上,他就變成一個「每事問」,第一次看到光頭的叔叔,他就去問人家為何他的頭這麼像自己的膝蓋;第一次看到黑人,又問我他是不是巧克力造的?作為父母的,真是體力急智,一樣也不能少。可是我轉念一想,其實這也是教導小孩認識世界,尊重他人的好機會,因此也總是樂意回答他的無數問題,也同時想起了自己的童年。

The way children see the world always amuses me, especially after my son was born. He is now 3 years old, and whenever we go out, he would ask me so many questions that leave me sometimes speechless: the first time he saw a bald guy on the street, he approached him and asked why did his head look exactly like his knees; and one time when he saw a black lady, he whispered to my ears, asking me if she is made out of chocolate. To answer all this dumbfounding questions, a parent needs patience, and a little humour as well, sometimes it could be quite embarrassing, but then I think it’s actually a chance to let the little ones know more the world and to learn how to respect, so I am always delighted when he asks me questions, it reminds me of my childhood memories.

小時候,我覺得世界是簡單而美好的;長大後,世界卻變得紛繁複雜。
由我們出生的一刻開始,每個人都開始背負著不同的文化、宗教和種族背景。這些背景經過不斷的歷史因由和變遷而產生,人們賦予他們不同的意思,甚至標籤。膚色是與生俱來的,沒有人可以選擇,但不少人嘗試改變自己,然而他們逃避其實並不是膚色,而是它背後的標籤。不同宗教、種族、文化、性取向,各種各樣的人都有自己的顏色,而這正是世界豐富多彩的原因。同樣地,這也是不少衝突和紛爭的源頭。

I used to think the world is beautiful, and simple, but as I grow old, I realise the world is anything BUT simple. Whether we like it or not, we are all born into different cultures, religions and races, and the labels that come with them too. No one can choose what colour they were born into, however a lot of us try to escape from it, but what we are really running from, I know, is not the colour, but the labels behind. The world is enriched by all the colours that different people represent, but unfortunately, these colours are the root of conflicts and discords as well.

而創立ibility後,發現其實可以藉著品牌為社會帶來改變,因此更希望用品牌微小的力量,以設計宣揚大愛的訊息,表揚不同的色彩,因為我們深信這正是人類真正美麗的地方。而這正是我們發起In One’s Skin的原因,首個項目雖然是手錶,但對於品牌來說,卻是一個長遠的慈善項目,希望以設計回饋社會。

After I founded ibility, I realised as a design brand, we can make a different in the society, and it can create a bigger ripple than individuals, that’s why we want to do our bit to spread the message of love, and to celebrate colours, no matter what colour it is, because we believe that’s where the true beauty lies. And this is exactly why we launch In One’s Skin, although the first project we have is a series of Nude watches, but to us, In One’s Skin is a long term charity campaign, as we try to contribute to the society through the power of design.

手錶代表的是時間,時間是永恆的,代表愛,而愛是無分國界、無分性別、無別年齡、無分你我,只要同處在這個世界,都有權利去愛和被愛。加上手錶以膚色作為設計基調,希望這個訊息能從看時間的分秒來提示,讓大家再一次思考膚色的意義,重新喚醒大家對種族融和、社會大同的認識和關注。

為貫徹以心彼心的信念,每隻訂購的手錶均會撥捐港幣50 元正予慈善團體,讓我們的心意透過慈善機構帶去世界的不同角落。去除我們本身的身份、種族的標籤,以身體力行幫助弱勢社群,為他們的人生時間中,添上燦爛的一筆。也讓我們的下一代,能在更和睦共融的世界生活和相愛。

我們相信,有你的支持,In One’s Skin可以走得更遠。

Watches tell time— the only thing that is constant in life— and to me, time is love as well, and it knows no boundaries, we are all born equal, and we all have the right to love and be loved. The colours of the leather strap come from skin tones, we want to challenge people to rethink the meaning of skin colours whenever they look at this watch, and raise awareness to racial integration and social harmony.

There are many charities that are making real differences in the world, and we want to support them through our campaign. For every purchase, we will donate HKD$50 to the charity of your own choosing. We don’t see labels, what we see are people in need, and we can all be part of the change, to make things a little better. And it’s a good way to educate our younger generation to love and to give, and to create a world that we have all been longing for.

There’s still a long way ahead for In One’s Skin, but with your support, we know we can go further.
