Kickass designer Kim Shui

VIVISXN fell under the spell of Kim Shui last season when the Central Saint Martins grad showed a collection via VFILES that was an A+ oeuvre of avant-gardism, pep and pluralism.

Downtown NYC designer Kim Shui brings a truly multicultural perspective to her lux brand of avant-garde meets hyper-modern. Trained at Duke in Econ and then minted at Saint Martins with a degree in design, the pretty polyglot (she speaks Italian, French, Chinese, etc.) excels at producing cerebral and psychotropic fashion that will make your taste filters bristle. Ruffled-trim trousers, hybrid polychrome tops, sexy lace looks, laser-cut leggings and streamlined trenches are wrought in a diverse range of textiles, from fine-gauge twisted knits to hybridized fabric treatments and lustrous colorful lambskins. Kim’s gear embodies energetic, esoteric silhouettes that have been meticulously cut with a clear and kickass vision. She approaches womenswear with a penchant for extreme pluralism, experimentalism, and an obsession with quality. Inspired by a range of references — punk, goth-rock, grunge, globalism, and abstract art, she implements raging rags and regalia with a distinctly renegade aesthetic. Peep the pics below.
