MADLY IN LOVE: XIMON LEE FOR H&M


Good morning everyone! Happy Saturday! How are you doing today, dear reader? It's the weekend, yayyyyy! My week was quite filled, with not only classes but also meeting up with friends and the Best Dressed Men Awards on Wednesday, with blogger bro's Jon and Dries. If you wanna see some pics of that night, head over to my instagram! Today, I wanted to shed a light on a collection I have been following very closely for the past months. It might seem a little odd to you guys, but it has a lot to do with famous high street giant H&M. Whether you like their concept or not, there's at least one (and actually a lot more) thing(s) they do each year that deserves a lot more attention: the H&M Design Award. The goal of that award is, and I quote from their website: "H&M Design Award is a design competition for students at selected design schools around the world. Our ambition is to bring up the most promising talents in fashion and give them a springboard in their careers." You can probably already tell why I love this idea so much: being given a creative space and the chance to get your pieces featured in one of the most important brands of our time is an amazing opportunity for young designers. We get some out of it too, since we are able to discover a new, fresh and unknown designer every year! What more can one ask, right?
I must say, I was especially excited this year, because for the first time, a collection designed for men won the annual award! Finally some pieces that I will be able to rock! What I like even more, is the fact that the designer plays around with gender, so that women are also able to wear his designs!
The winner I'm talking about is Ximon Lee, who is originally from Hong Kong but lives in New York now, where he studied menswear at Parsons. His collection is exciting, new, interesting and refeshing. I can honestly say, I have never seen anything like it before. The layering, the play with silhouettes, the oversized garments,... I am over the moon. Let's look at some lookbook shots, shall we?







Come on guys, what's not to love? Safe to say that I haven't been this excited for a collection to drop in a long time. Ximon Lee and H&M are KILLING it! The collection drops on october 22nd, BE READY TO SHOP YOUR LIFE AWAY! It will be available  both online and in selected shops.

PS! I am participating in the Zalando Blogger Awards again, it would mean the world to me if you gave me a vote! The vote button is on this blog, on the right, or you can visit this site! Thanks in advance! 

What do you think about the collection? 
Thank you for reading!
