Celebrate Merdeka with Swatch

Celebrate Merdeka with Swatch

In celebration of Malaysia’s 64th Independence Day, Swatch and graffiti artist Kenji Chai release an eye-catching canvas design that embrace our country’s unique multi-ethnic society.

As part of Swatch X You, the watchmaker’s digital platform that allows people to customise their own timepiece, Kenji Chai’s Swatch celebrates Malaysia canvas takes its cue from Malaysia’s proudest elements.

A traditional wau bulan (moon-kite) takes centre stage in the tropical-infused graffiti, accompanied by the wildlife for Malaysia -including bearcat, hornbill, tapir and proboscis. The canvas also sees other heritage such as traditional costume, folk dance and local dishes – cause how can we not talk about our food?
