Ximon Lee

Abstract layering of colour and features like zips and fastenings are piled together into Ximon Lee's designs. Rich textural works that are the antithesis of tailoring, but the essence of modern collaged designs. Ximon Lee graduated from Parsons Fashion School in 2014 and has been shortlisted for the H&M Design awards 2015. His collection was influenced by travels in Russia.
"The unintentional styles of street children near suburban Moscow is the main focus. Oversized, ill-fitted and layered clothes on these orphans are keys to survive in cold Russian winter. However, the unexpected mixture of materials and the contrast between synthetic and organic textures from these found clothes are pieces of art and love. Based on the idea of oversized clothes on homeless children, Ximon deconstructed and re-patterned many garments from Salvation Army. Different ways of sandwiching/bonding fabrics as well as constructing with found materials such as trash bags and cardboards are also explored during the development." Ximon Lee
