Minju Kim, a graduate of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, won H&M‘s annual design competition last year and had small capsule collection sold at select stores and Opening Ceremony in October. I’m kicking myself for missing the boat on this – perhaps the anticipation of Marant-insanity threw my attention off kilter. Kim brings her fascination with Manga to life, with inventive silhouettes – the leather collar worn over a pleated trapeze dress and the wavy edged, cape-like sweater are insanely cool. And the bright yellow jacquard cocoon coat?! Forget about it. Can’t wait to see more from this talent.
