GLOBAL INTUITION is inspired by social media and everyday life, digital philosophy and quotes, science and meditation and cross cultural eventful moments and exchanges. Founded by international multimedia artist and entrepreneur YiZhou, GLOBAL INTUITION is an American brand that highlights the cross border aspect of creativity and production today. The brand was conceived in the social media era, designed in Shanghai and Los Angeles and produced in China, with a focus on Chinese manufacturing, know-how and sustainability. Breaking away from traditional fashion show codes, the brand is completely based on the “see now and buy now” model. The brand’s motto is “Minimal Soulful Luxury” for modern day social media citizens.
