Non by Kim Spring/Summer 2011By Editor in Fashion on July 23rd, 2010 | Please Comment !! »
Another menswear line from Amsterdam International Fashion Week — Non by Kim. Check out images from her Spring/Sumer 2011 collection.
Kim Bakkersâ€™ new fashion collection was inspired by lost tribes, people who live isolated and free of influences from other civilizations. Therefore it was called â€˜Uncontactedâ€™.
For this collection Kim reinterpreted the ethnic symbols of the lost tribes into a contemporary aesthetic. She translated their rich cultural traditions and hand-drawn body decorations into roughly geometric, clear-cut, hand drawn grid divisions.
The catwalk was surrounded by little speakers which created special extra sound effects during the show. For that Kim partnered with Steim, a music institution dedicated to live performance.
