MAXXIJ SS21 Collection

Words by Thomas Brooks — Junior Fash­ion Edi­tor

Some of the best col­lec­tions to hit Lon­don Fash­ion Week are well thought through and out of the box. Unfor­tu­nate­ly I can­not attend run­ways this year due to the pan­dem­ic, so my gasp of sur­prise will be cov­ered with a mask — to pro­tect myself of course. How­ev­er, con­cep­tu­al fash­ion house MAXXIJ from South Korea has my eyes wide open for their new SS21 col­lec­tion.

MAXXI­J’s core val­ues of lib­er­a­tion and recre­ation of iden­ti­ty is present in each col­lec­tion, and the next sea­son will see a rebirth. The con­cept is titled ‘Escapist’ — his ideas and visions for a fash­ion for­ward indus­try is befit­ting of the world we live in today. With strong con­trasts in fab­rics and colours, the design­er lib­er­ates and exper­i­ments — let­ting the wear­er express with move­ment and shape.
