Surrounded by the ocean at The Grand Ho Tram Strip, Lam team captured the lively moments of these beautiful women harmonizing with nature. Coming to this campaign, every women has the chance to get in touch with, understand and love their own body more. As one of the patients confided to us, "I was diagnosed with breast cancer 7 years ago. And during that 7 years, whenever I walked down the street, at first I couldn’t get familiar with the fact that I lost a part of my body. I felt so insecure, and always looked down to figure out the differences between me and other women. And eventually I found nothing. I still have a friendly face, a body shape, just without my breasts, everything else still makes me a perfect woman."

Lam's clothes always aim at the liberation of the soul to seek complete freedom. The women in Lam's clothes seem to get rid of their self doubt, free themselves from beauty standards, and go back to the nature of themselves. Dressed in Lam, they can feel their skin gently touched by the delicate material, and the sensuality of their own bodies.

Lam's aesthetic style naturally awakened the instinct and the desire to rise up as a genuine woman in each of them.
