San Kim – children and adults, clumsiness and sophistication, playfulness and seriousness

It is a period of reflection and relates to aesthetics, taking place before considering the restraints of production. Intw San Kim

How do you bring a vision into full-fruition? Forming ideas, images and concepts means to operate beyond the input of our physical senses. It is a period of reflection and relates to aesthetics, taking place before considering the restraints of production. Design is the process that precedes the discipline of manufacturing. Our Fashion Editor Giorgia Fuzio in conversation with San Kim.

SAN KIM

I chose this career because of my fear and shyness. I have found comfort in seeing other designers that I am not the only one who have fear and shame. I am too shy to say out my thoughts and emotions to others. So I needed a medium to enable communication between me and the public. Fashion is the most comfortable medium for me, just as the movie director share their universe through their movie. My collection is inspired by the sculptural work of artist Paul McCarthy. In particular, McCarthy’s sculpture Tree, which is a crucial look within the collection. My interest lie in Freud’s psychosexual development and juxtaposes this with contrasting images of children and adults, clumsiness and sophistication, playfulness and seriousness in the collection.

While the inflatable products can be viewed as crude, the garments are based on sophisticated Japanese denim production methods. I also portray Freud’s use of the term “Libido” in a playful, witty way, rather than sexually communicating it. The colour story was a direct reference from the work of Allen Jones’ painting, which shares the same language. If I say past collection is mainly about Fetish and Fashion, Collection I work on recently is mainly about Fear and Fashion.  Something like this corona situation.
