"Fashion should be fun," says Joyce Huang. "It should be fun to wear, fun to buy, fun to look at. So much of what was the 1960s, especially the music, had a joy, and a lightness, and a fun attitude to it."

Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy, Sophia Loren. Certain women of note iconically defined fashion in the 1960s with their sense of style. The looks of the decade were fun, passionate, and rebellious. Designer Joyce Huang evokes this time of youthful exuberance in fashion with her new collection for Lucullen, adding in a bit of an edge to bring the 1960s into the 21st Century.
Once again, Huang has created pieces for Lucullen that are designed to elegantly take women through the demands of their workday and into their plans for the evening afterwards. This time, her creations exhibit influences from the Mod and Rocker styles of ‘60s British youth culture, updated and made accessible to professional women of any age.
"Fashion should be fun," says Huang. "It should be fun to wear, fun to buy, fun to look at. So much of what was the 1960s, especially the music, had a joy, and a lightness, and a fun attitude to it. But there was just enough of a bite to it all to make it a little bit dangerous. This was the inspiration for this new collection."
The playful, yet edgy, attitude Lucullen introduces in its Fall 2010 collection is seen in the cut, color combinations, and bold fabrics used for the pieces. The use of sequins and the detailing of several pieces give them a true '60s rock star look. At the same time, Lucullen's signature of luxuriously sensual fashion for women is seen throughout the collection. Versatility has been a hallmark of this unique, high-end fashion brand since its inception, resulting in its wide appeal to women of many lifestyles.
Huang, Lucullen’s founder and head designer, has successfully created various collections around the world, in cities such as Taipei, Shanghai, Toronto, and New York, for over a decade. She possesses the elegant talent to weave the passion and confidence of a true woman into the fabrics of her creations. Many have found her line “Soft but sculptured, creating an essence of professional appeal. Her style is tender and demure, but bold – desiring attention. It is delicate and discreet while fearless and assertive.” These traits of Huang’s line echo from city to city.
Embodying a sense of strong global awareness and social responsibility, Lucullen has been actively involved in charitable activities, including its recent sponsorship of a benefit to raise funds for typhoon relief in Taiwan, organized by AsianinNY.com, and its sponsorship of the "Sing for China" benefit to raise AIDS awareness. Both events took place in New York City.
