《南聊》White do 白做研究所

【生活的各種可能,除了更美、還要更好】-White do 白做研究所

地址:台南市中西區開山路3巷20號
受訪人:小沃
台南人。

大學在外地念書的小沃,研究所時期回到台南讀設計,在學期間因為香港老師的介紹,認識了白做佬和白做太太,以及許多喜愛台南的香港朋友。畢業後小沃去了中國廣東工作,那段時間裡,小沃對於生活環境和工作狀態極度不滿意,每次休假便往香港跑,也開始和白做夫婦的討論,想像擁有一間屬於自己的空間,重新拿回對生活的掌握。

回台灣後小沃一邊在市集擺攤一邊找地點,也用布料做飾品同時經營網拍,一步步地讓【白做研究所】成形,對他們來說,「白活不如白做」,與其變成無聊的人,不如想辦法讓生活充滿樂趣。

小沃說三人都是從小對穿搭有莫名執念和狂熱的人,經過年輕時期的亂買,很多衣服根本連穿都沒穿過的浪費訓練之下,漸漸懂得挑東西的質感勝過低價的誘惑。即使台灣目前多數的人在購物時仍多保有品牌和價格迷思,但在白做研究所裡,提供好看又好用的東西才是不變的法則。

小時候住在台南機場附近的小沃,認為台南是個「什麼都可能發生的城市」,城市的面貌在這幾年尤其有了明顯的轉變,以林百貨為例,小沃說她童年時林百貨的位置就是個廢墟,像是電影《胭脂扣》中張國榮年老後住的地方,怎麼也沒想過它會在這幾年間搖身一變成為觀光景點。

中秋連假時小南園子號召了白做舉辦市集活動,活動用意在於幫助流浪貓狗,也串聯近十間台南店家一起盡份心力。白做夫婦總共養了八隻貓咪在家,即使香港的地狹人稠程度再擁擠,都抵擋不了他們熱愛動物的心,而接下來白做也計畫邀請店裡販售的日本品牌設計師來台舉辦展覽和工作坊,讓更多人從生活中得到火花,寧願白做都不白活。

Woyi was born in Tainan and left the city when she was in university. After four years of living outside Tainan, Woyi came back for studying design in graduate school. During the graduate school time, Woyi had a teacher from Hong Kong and made some friends from Hong Kong due to teacher’s introducing, including Joel &Jan. After graduated, Woyi went working in Guangdong, China, she was completed unsatisfied with both the working situation and living environment. So, she visited Joel &Jan in Hong Kong many times when she took days off, the idea of opening a brand/shop together became emerging. When Woyi moved back to Taiwan, she then started looking for the location to open a shop, while she made fabric accessories both selling online and in weekend market, and that’s the time when ‘White do’ started. The spirit of ‘White do’ shall be, we rather die for what we love, instead of die for nothing.

Woyi said three of them are all fascinated about clothes and living aesthetics. Woyi says she learned how to select products after teenagers’ crazy shopping period which only cared about prices. Even most Taiwanese nowadays still keep the myth of label and price, what White do trying to do is providing good-looking and nice-using products.

Woyi lived near Tainan airport when she was a kid. She views Tainan as a city full of possibilities, and the city keeps changing and renovating. Take Hayashi Department Store for an example, recalled from Woyi’s childhood, the place was all in ruins like where Leslie Cheung lived when he turned old in the famous film ‘Rouge’. It’s hard to imagine the place will turn into a famous spot before it was renovated.

In the coming Mid-Autumn festival vacation this year, The Southern Yard, an organization, invited over ten shops in Tainan, including White do, holding a market event for helping stray animals. Even Hong Kong is a place pretty hard for everyone to have enough space to live in, Joel &Jan still keeps eight cats at home. For them, animals are important living and people should try our best treat them better.

White Do’s Tainan Indie Brand/ Place recommendation: H’AND HERB Life, Wang Xi Shi Fruit Cookies.
