Parsons School of Design graduate Ximon Lee is the first menswear winner of H&M’s Design Award, and with the high accolade is the chance at a special collection that will be sold at the worldwide retailer. For the special capsule, Lee created a unisex collection inspired by his penchant for bold structure and volume. Working closely with the H&M team on complex bonded fabrics, Lee played with shapes that captivate, with innovative constructions including usage of foam, pleating and special overlays.
“I am thrilled with Ximon’s collection for H&M. His bonded fabrics and structured shapes are really exciting, and show exactly why Ximon won the H&M Design Award,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, creative advisor at H&M. Check out Lee’s collection at hm.com and in stores beginning October 22.
