VFiles present their favourite new designers.
As part of New York Fashion Week, influential retailers, VFiles, have showcased new collections by three young designers. First up is Hye Gin Hamm, whose heavy use of all-denim, and advanced layering, sets out a strong and defined aesthetic. Then we have Tigran Avetisyan, whose loose, cut & sew sportswear incorporates fragments of typography, akin to recent collections from Raf Simons, or Agi & Sam. Finally, we see Detto Kazuma’s collection, which seems simultaneously both futuristic, and 90s-influenced, seeming to take inspiration from protective sports equipment as much as anything else. Three fine young talents to add to VFiles’ already excellent roster.
