LIE 라이

Creative Director Chung Chung Lee & Nana Lee



Chung Chung Lee and Nana Lee, the brother-sister duo behind the brand LIE, are the children of renowned designer parents of the legendary Korean fashion house LIE SANGBONG. Growing up, they were surrounded by creativity, runway shows, and fashion week events that took them around the globe. They formed their own design tastes after graduating from Central Saint Martins and becoming award-winning designers in their own right. They were happy working in the fashion industry independently, but as Chung and Nana settled in Seoul and New York respectively, they sensed a growing desire for more affordable luxury among their peers. That sparked a shared vision to create a line that echoed the elegance and sculptural details of their parents’ label, with a more accessible price point and style for the modern day creative woman. That vision came to life with the launch of LIE.

Chung Chung and Nana’s exquisite taste and laid back demeanor is central to the LIE brand. Defined by a masterful blending of geometric patterns and shapes, each collection manifests their multicultural perspective through a playful yet restrained use of sculptural shapes, proportion, and texture accompanied by intricate details and tailoring.

Since its inception, independent and creative women around the globe have flocked to the brand. Today, LIE has grown over the years to include two free standing stores, multiple pop-up shops throughout Asia and a permanent section in the flagship LIE SANGBONG Concept store in New York’s Meatpacking District. The line is distributed through wholesale accounts across the globe including specialty shops and department stores in Korea, Singapore, China, Turkey, Middle East, Canada, and the United States.

With a team that’s located worldwide, the brand continues to grow and evolve by exploring new possibilities while remembering its roots.
