hee lim – K11 Autumn / Winter 2011- 2012

Recent Parsons The New School For Design‘s prodigy Hee Lim looks at the documentary Koyaanisqatsi, directed by Godfrey Reggio, as a source of inspiration for “K11“, his Fall-Winter 2011 Collection. The troubled relationship between nature and modern reality, central theme of Reggios‘ film, becomes the main element of K11, which translates shapes, colors and movements highly technical pieces. The garments pay an homage to versatility, ready to change their shape and function adapting to the sudden changes of weather conditions. The outfits are made of a series of overlapped layers, like the cotton hoodies worn over multiple sweatshirts, forming a sort of fabric’s agglomerates that can be easily disassembled; perfect for an urban setting or the ice landscapes. Maxi backpacks and multi pockets military vest-like jackets help the man to face the disastrous consequences caused by his own invasive action. The line is designed for a dynamic life, anunbalanced life”, as the Hopi language word “Koyaanisqatsi” means; for an existence after the environmental collapse, and for our hectic everyday life.
