FW23/ OBSESSION N°7 “Link Up”
Here is “Link Up”, the seventh chapter of our OBSESSION series: Designer Kiminte’s obsession towards aesthetics.
“Transforming ideas into real-life objects is always a very inspiring process. This collection binds my favorite sources of inspiration together to shape the KIMHĒKIM universe.”
In order to add a new dimension to the collection, our Seoul atelier team was trained in traditional decorative knotting for months. Incorporating more traditional traits gives new energy to the season despite the challenge it represented.
Disruptive net dresses created with entwined ropes are remarkable central pieces while the infamous hair dress and draped mikado silk couture dress boast a new pink-beige color. In FW23, playful experiments highlight the DNA of the House.
Beloved classics from fashion history such as the men’s sailor jacket, the tuxedo, and the trench coat underwent a renaissance with Kiminte. The contrast between soft and rigid materials, as well as exaggerated lengths make for a surreal collection seemingly extracted from a dream.
