DESKTOP VERSION BELOW

YAN YAN CHAN

She’s the self taught influencer and photographer as cheeky as they come. With a penchant for the sun and a love of the unknown, fall head over heels for our latest #AjeInsider, Yan Yan Chan.

Define your Summer style?

Spontaneous, carefree and comfortable. I actually love dressing for the Summer, I’m in warmer locations 60-70% of the year, so I feel like I’m so much more prepared and experimental when it comes to dressing for the heat. I love the heat. I love being by the beach, and I’m generally a much more relaxed person in Summer – most people are. I love pieces I can easily transition into from work, after work swims, and a sunset vino.

 

What is your favourite thing about Summer?

Everything… but I love that first smell and swim of Summer. When the night is finally a little balmy, and there’s an air of sweet floral roaming in the air, the one you smell at the beginning of every Summer, and the chill that rushes down my spine when I dive under that first wave. So fresh.

 

Tell us a little more about your current European trip, where has been your favourite place(s)?

The Italian coastline, I’ve decided I’m heading back every year. We spent time in Maori last year, but this year we stayed in Arienzo. A little closer in town, but out of the hustle. Our days were spent forever lazing under the sun, on a day bed, on a boat, by the sea, with fresh tomato’s, pasta.. seafood, Bellini’s and endless red wine. It was a special trip with all of our nearest’s. I love the Italian culture and people so much, and the Italian coastline is mind blowing.

What are your top 5 tips for travelling?

Less is more, travelling light and bringing things you know you will wear, and re-wear over and over again. I swear, I always end up leaving pieces behind because I don’t wear them at home – to begin with, and don’t wear, when I’m away!
Echinacea.. stock up! I take the Bear “Protect”.
If you’re going for a Summer vacation, a good pair of sandals you can slip on and off and don’t mind getting salt on. Walking around barefoot sounds dreamy, but the black rocks down by the beach are killer hot. We all learnt the hard way.
Plan, I like travelling spontaneously but it’s always good to have a brief plan of your day — pre-booking tickets to art galleries & restaurants is important!
I am obsessed with keeping memories alive, so apart from documenting on a camera, I like writing down a little paragraph or line of what I did each day, and ‘saving’ places on Google maps. That’s a savior.

 

Where is good to eat, drink and play in Barcelona?

We stayed in El Born, a little busy on the streets, but perfect if you don’t mind a little hustle – bustle and people watching. Casa Lolea for dinner, Bar Del Pla for local Tapas throughout the day, The Picasso Museum in the morning, bike ride everywhere, and if you feel like doing something low-key, where lots of people watching is involved, MACBA at night time is the place to do it. The skate and street youth of Barcelona comes to play, we got takeaway and sat for hours watching people skate and dance.

Travelling can take a huge toll on your body, what beauty regimes do you do to keep yourself feeling and looking good?

I try to drink more water than I do when I’m at home as we are constantly on the move and in the sun. I don’t stick to any routines, I feel like when I’m on Summer vacation, my skin and body finally relaxes, so I don’t even really have a skin and beauty regime. Salt water and wearing no make up, helps with my skin. I cleanse with Evelom during the nights, and only stick to water proof mascara, I tend to rely on Sunscreen, perfume and religiously take BEAR (explore/perform). I like keeping fit always, I don’t commit to a gym but like to keep on the move wherever I am.
In Italy, all the best hidden beaches are down the cliffs, in a day we’d at least do 200 (minimum) steps a day. In Barcelona and Paris, we walked everywhere we went, and if our destination was more than a 30 minute walk, we’d hire bikes and ride. But apart from all that, down time. I always have at least one day out of my week of travelling to a new city, to just completely relax, sleep in, and not do much at all. That’s important.

We loved your self portraits in collaboration with Darren Luk, tell us a little more about the inspiration behind it?

The portraits were created for a project I recently did in collaboration with I-Manifest. An NGO that works collaboratively with sustainable clients to create projects with students in school who don’t have access to a good arts/creative department. So we worked with Kiehls and I created a collage and art workshop, so that was where this shoot came into play. We shot it at HOM yoga, who was also another collaborator and we styled the AJE pieces with another yoga sustainable label, Nagnata.

 

Any exciting new projects you are working on you’d like to tell us about?

Leaving again in less than 3 weeks and I’ll be off to New York and back to Europe in September. It’s my first year of doing fashion month, so I’ll be producing and creating a whole lot of fresh content for your eyes! Keeping it all a secret for now.. but I’m so excited.

We love your creative eye and photography, did you go to university or are you self taught?

Self taught! I studied film photography when I was in Year 9 as a free elective, and fell in love with it all. I was obsessed. I continued this obsession all throughout high school after my parents bought me my first DSLR.. I eventually moved back to film 3 years back. I still have a lot to learn, and wouldn’t mind assisting someone! But for now, it’s all still fun for me.

 

Where do you see your self in the next 5 years?

Hope to keep travelling, learning and having another creative project outside of my blog. Not sure what it will be yet, but I’d love to continue working for myself.
