Non by Kim FW14/15 Zero
Established by fashion designer Kim Bakker in 2007, menswear label Nön by Kim is characterized by a clean design with a nordic aesthetic. The Dutch label’s latest offering for this Fall/Winter season, titled Zero, sets a fresh start for Bakker.
The designer used the idea of Zero as an empty space to create blanks, holes and cut-outs as a negative space. Erasing and deforming details until there is only one striking detail left.
Bakker was inspired by the origin of the number "0", which meaning she found in the Maya culture; where an ovoid shell represents the zero. The research influenced the rounded silhouettes. Zero is the result of intricate details,high quality materials, research and sustainability with an eye for modern menswear.
