H&M Launches a Capsule Collection by Ximon Lee In October

Ximon Lee has been awarded the H&M design award for his androgynous apparel and his prospect as a designer. Ximon was the first menswear designer to receive this award in 2015, and this marks his second consecutive H&M design award recognition. If you like his quirky designs, you’ll be happy to get a piece from the Ximon Lee for H&M 2015 capsule collection that’s to get launched later in October.

Ximon offers a fresh, new perspective as a designer, since he so recently graduated from Parson’s in 2014. In his time with H&M, the designer has shown his eye for unique silhouettes. As a proclaimed menswear designer, Ximon Lee has already shown that he can create a new bridge between men’s and women’s fashion. Since androgyny is already huge on the 2016 runway, there is no surprise H&M would create a line to celebrate it. In doing so, Ximon was given the perfect outlet to showcase his creative talent, while also playing to his strengths in menswear.

There’s no doubt the choice of this designer as the recipient of H&M’s reward was thought out and well-established. He has proved that his voice is strong enough to be heard in the fashion industry, and we know we’ll soon be seeing his looks on the streets, on men and women alike.

October 22nd marks the release date for the young designer’s eight-piece unisex collection. While many “androgynous” clothing lines tend to lean to one gender or the other (either showing masculine pieces with feminine aspects, or vice versa), Ximon has achieved a level of balance many designers haven’t quite been able to reach yet.

That is how the H&M award was given so precisely. With the goal of choosing a lesser-known designer who displays clear direction in his or her own fashion aesthetic, the brand’s choice was clear. Ximon is a young, new designer who has a head full of ideas and the technique to bring them to life.

In the past, he has demonstrated his talent when working with exaggerated shapes. He uses a variety of techniques to achieve these unique shapes, such as manipulating the volume or layering oversized garments on top of one another, and all while making sure not to lose the form of the garments. Working with oversized clothing can prove challenging, because as the garments become larger and larger than the model’s frame, it is difficult to maintain a coherent shape.

But Ximon Lee has clearly pulled it off in his past work, and H&M has recognized him for his accomplishments. It takes a cool-headed designer to create something so structured yet laidback for a person of any gender, so Ximon has earned his prestige.

There is a clear market in the fashion industry today for his abstract way of thinking. It’s uncommon to see a designer who identifies as a menswear designer to delve into androgyny on such a balanced level, because it is a trend most often seen in the middle of a feminine-dominated runway show.
