JUNWEI LIN

JUNWEI LIN, an independent designer whose vision of decadent romanticism blurs the boundary in-between menswear and womenswear, ultimately to extend her vision of modern masculinity by creating a subtle unisex collection. Taken from LIN’s East meet West background, her skillsets from the celebrated London College of Fashion and Parsons New York; “JUNWEI LIN” design is the symbol of the new era of deconstruction with a touch of obsession in craftsmanship.

FW20 JUNWEI LIN PRESS RELEASE

Background
JUNWEI LIN 秋冬系列创作灵感来自于美国艺术家HENRY DARGER的作品,其生前隐匿于出租屋的地下室内,日夜不断地绘制小说故事集「In The Realm of Unreal」,故事讲述了儿童与成人之间的战争,被奴役的小女孩对奴役者格兰丁利尼亚人(Glandelinia)的反抗,最终被七名英勇的女孩(Vivian girls)营救,再加上保护儿童组织的亨利•达戈将军的鼎力协助,最终消灭了可恶的奴役者。背景来自于他的童年在收容所里遭受的非正常虐待,以及成人后终身无婚育的他无法领养小孩的遗憾。

Collection
FW20 JUNWEI LIN的色彩从Darger的水彩绘本中获取灵感,采用了饱和度不同的颜色拼接,用轻薄的欧根纱表现画中的背景色,碰撞色彩怪诞的羊毛和针织。20秋冬系列除了延续了JUNWEI LIN审美下单的解构手法外,还使用了大量细节上拼接和层次,结合其善用的男装工艺,组成了一个个怪诞可爱的“JUNWEI SCOUT”女孩形象。廓形从brownie girls和boy scouts的制服出发,挖空,重塑,堆砌。Darger日夜从海报上剪下人物图画,一遍遍临摹练习,他的小说反映了他最真实的愿望:孩子们不必再一辈子活在童年被虐待的阴影中,受到欺凌的小生命可以得到vivian girls这样的儿童战士们的解救。和Darger一样,JUNWEI LIN 也希望可以通过新系列转达“Strawberry Fantasy”的概念:事实上,每一个人都可以成为守护这些孩子们美好童年的“战士”。
