“I am thrilled with Ximon’s collection for H&M. His bonded fabrics and structured shapes are really exciting, and show exactly why Ximon won the H&M Design Award,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.
It’s not everyday a fashion sketch translates directly to the body, but in this case it is paper to fabric. The enlarged and clean-cut silhouettes are structured so the body forms to the clothing, rather than the other way around. Lee constructs his clothes with a piece of foam between the fabrics to achieve his gravity-defying shapes, so the structure remains the same on or off the body.
There is something so comfortable when looking at the clothing; the oversized and chunky nature of the collection evokes a feeling of protection and safety and will get us geared up for the winter season. The collection will hit the shelves of selected H&M stores and hm.com from 22nd October 2015. See the pieces below: Text : Kieran Ho
