H&M Unveils Minju Kim Collection

H&M Unveils Minju Kim Collection

Minju Kim, the winner of the 2013 H&M Design Award, unveiled her collection to be sold at selected H&M stores this autumn.

"Creating this collection with H&M has been an amazing experience," commented Kim. "My designs are about turning characters into outfits, and it's exciting to think that these characters will soon be worn by people around the world. Winning the H&M Design Award has given me a unique insight into the global fashion industry."

Minju's pieces for H&M bring the dream world of Manga to life with unique cuts and clever fabric combinations. A collarless coat in vivid yellow, a short jacket in two contrasting jacquards or a cape made of black wool creates a sweet rounded silhouette. The textured heavy knit links the sleeves to the body with cartoonish curves, while a neoprene-fronted sweatshirt is printed with Manga-inspired images drawn by Minju herself. A paneled minidress mixes matt with shine, while jacquard trousers keep their structured shape. To complete the look there's a black and white wedge platform lace-up and a characterful turquoise leather collar.
