“Less is More” – The LILANZ Brand Story
Highlighting Minimalism Design
Leading the Way in Modish Vogue
In 2000, Wang Liangxing, one of the founders of China Lilang, captured an inspirational insight from the “personal digital assistant (PDA)” that was popular in the 1990s to put forward the ground-breaking notion of “business casual menswear”, bringing an all-new product category into the market for that time, blazing a new development path for the menswear industry in China. “He who overcomes others may speak with a strong voice, but he who could overcome personal shortcomings has true power”. The year 2016 witnessed China Lilang once again breaking new grounds. Centring on consumers, China Lilang embarked upon fresh initiatives to explore new growth prospects and new business models that were epitomised by the creation of refined living experience for the customers, and launched the young and chic “LILANZ LESS IS MORE” collection. The notion of “LESS IS MORE” is an embodiment of the LILANZ design philosophy of “Less is More”. The collection adopts a minimalist design cutting for a diversified product mix with unique craftsmanship to create garments that look and feel more comfortable.
China Lilang sees an all-new business force in 2020 and takes the opportunities to launch LILANZ X CHINA DAILY crossover products. Kindled by the inspiration from the front cover of China Daily, the products map out the blueprint for a new generation of fashion alamode, ushering China Lilang in a completely new era with opportunities abound for the new business outfit.

LILANZ can fittingly pride itself on exclusivity and foresight from the selection of yarns and fabrics, printing and dying, in-house pattern and logo designs, to post-production lab testing, etc. We research our fabric materials starting from yarns, thus boosting our flexibility in the development of fabric materials, all the while effectively keeping costs under control and ensuring product quality.
In addition, the company has also established its international R&D team in 2012. With that, we aim to keep abreast of the latest trend in ideas and concepts from the international arena.
