Marking Shanghai Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020, XIMONLEE took over the Minsheng Wharf with showcase platform LABELHOOD for a display that utilizes installation and moving presentation to create a multi-channel story that touches on restoration and poetic symbolism.
Framed by a chandelier-like installation of surveillance cameras, the latest seasonal collection from Shanghai-based designer Ximon Lee explores the concept of “self-consciousness” and classic menswear staples. The contemporary reworks are defined by right-angled forms and relaxed fits that challenge the confines of traditional silhouettes. Other defining elements include displaced sartorial details like front placed rear-style pockets, elongated waist belts, collar-scarf elements and more.
Some standouts include a double-breasted silk satin blazer, iridescent crushed velvet suits and a take on Reebok‘s DMX Trail Hydrex sneaker. The collaborative sneaker features a trail-inspired outsole paired with a functional water boot upper in vibrant colorways.
