Yie Kim
South-Korean designer YIE KIM has formed a collaboration with Totem, to create her SS20 collection inspired by the sculpture “Winged Victory of Samothrace.”
 
The exquisitely carved wings show the power in femininity, and are translated into her designs using transparent materials like organza and silk.

YIE KIM sets out to personify her appreciation of modern art and design, and aims to embody the kinship between modern art and fashion by her softly sculpted idea of femininity which is represented in each piece.

As a Korean-rooted designer and a graduate of Parsons School of Design, New York, and now residing in Europe, she is able to capture the global world of modern art from different aspects. Her expanded vision is delivered in her collections with quiet, yet boldly sophisticated and sculpted design pieces.

Materials have been carefully selected with fine fabrics to ensure a timeless design in this quickly evolving fashion world. The collections cater to the modern person who perceives fashion as a form of art. Intertwining of modern art and fashion is the founding philosophy of the brand, YIE KIM.
