Kaypee Soh; artist and designer; was inspired at an early age by the textures and colors that exist in the natural world. This inspiration led him to a passion for art and graphic design. While convincing his parents that he had to pursue his interest for design, he attended college in London and gainfully graduated with a degree in graphic design. From there, he worked in London, Canada, and New York in the world of high-end fashion and brand consulting expressing his artistry and refining his craft.
In 2004, after an extended holiday in Hawaii, he decided it was time to venture out on his own. Discovering that the landscape of the Hawaiian islands reminded him of his youth growing up in Malaysia, Oahu became his new home. There in Honolulu, where he co-founded Somace Design, a branding and design company, Kaypee began collaborating locally with architects and interior designers to create custom artwork, signage, area rugs and textiles for hospitality projects. By 2008, the brand evolved into a working design studio and retail shop, introducing his artwork in residential decor and textiles.
Kaypee quickly became the “go-to” designer, known for his modern, pacific-inspired, signature large graphic prints; energized colors and impeccable handcrafted quality. Then In 2014, as a featured designer of the Aloha runway show for Honolulu Fashion Week 2014, Kaypee introduced his inaugural women’s fashion collection, it was just the beginning.
Today Kaypee Soh became a lifestyle brand with the introduction of his spring/summer 2016 women’s ready to wear collection and fashion accessories, celebrating modern pacific inspired design. The collection includes leather handbags, tee's and a men's fitted Pacific (Aloha) shirt line. The Kaypee Soh home decor line will be expanding as well with the addition of bedding, outdoor pillows and area rugs.
Needless to say, Kaypee is a busy man these days. Nevertheless, he still finds the time to enjoy his other passions, cooking and traveling. His favorite pastime is taking photography and he never leaves home without his camera, discovering inspiration at every new location.
