Minju Kim, a young and talented designer, makes her first steps, which appear to be quite massive ones, taking into account the chance to collaborate with the famous Swedish brand, H&M that has a big army of followers all over the world. This is quite obliging for the designer, and at the same time challenging in terms of putting forward innovative ideas and fresh looks. Talking about the chance of hers, she says, “Creating this collection with H&M has been an amazing experience. My designs are about turning characters into outfits, and it’s exciting to think that these characters will soon be worn by people around the world. Winning the H&M Design Award has given me a unique insight into the global fashion industry.”
So, she seems to be doing her part quite plausibly. The best proof for this is the present overview featuring the key elements of the Minju Kim for H&M fall 2013 capsule collection that is set to hit the H&M stores on the 17th of October, 2013. Among the few looks presented to the public scrutiny so far, we can see interesting wool capes, topping wool sweatshirts further combined with tight pants. This is followed by a pleated theme, which is applied to the whole dress having a curious collar design.
The spectacular prints drawn by Minju Kim, resembling abstract paintings, are found on some tops as well, being another key technique to the creativity of the Minju Kim for H&M fall 2013 capsule collection. The slightly oversized sleeves of these tops are also worth mentioning. The collarless sunny yellow coat can be a perfect solution for anyone who is striving to stand out in the crowd. The interestingly shaped and colored pants, like the other pieces of this collection carry the specific descriptive influence of the ideological manga-inspiration.
Talking about the colors of the Minju Kim for H&M fall 2013 collection, we can’t but see the wide usage of mint green and pale pink, dominating about other shades like yellow, black and cream taken by smaller proportions. Thus, the first tries of Minju Kim stepping, as she put it, into the fashion industry can be obviously assumed as absolutely successful and creative.
