Already a house hold name in Hong Kong, the Seoul native Hong Kiyoung is now making waves on North American and European runways! This young designer first broke out onto the fashion scene printing t-shirts and clothing, and has since seen his label erupt worldwide following the launch of his first menswear collection in 2012.
Hong Kiyoung has translated his graphic experiments into the electric prints and patterns we’ve seen and sought after in each of his collections. With ‘Elegant Saboteur’ Hong Kiyoung stayed true to his ‘Minimalistic Exaggeration with street’ esthetic, bringing together strong structured men’s and womenswear in wools, knits, sheers and leather with bold and colourful graphics undoubtedly evoked from contemporary arts. The collection was complete from head to toe featuring bandana inspired, tie-back base-ball caps, sunnies with rainbow hued mirrored lens and statement footwear, a show-stopping collaboration we are ecstatic to see more from on Vancouver’s runways.
This provocative international designer has certainly caught our attention! We are anxious to see what he unveils this Fall/Winter season at Vancouver Fashion Week 2015.
