About the Designers
JunJie Yang is an Antwerp-based menswear designer and recent graduate of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. His work is characterized by attention to craftsmanship and unexpected twists in fabrication, construction and finishing. His work is inspired by Asian culture and explores the way it has been shaped by centuries of cultural erosion.
London based Christian Stone founded his couture label ‘Mutant Artisanal’ after graduating Central St. Martins. Its concept gravitates towards redefining the forgotten notion of haute couture and seeks to look into its future. He is inspired by the dishevelled and transient nature of the world and creates artisanal couture clothing that is bizarrely new and functional.
Louis Pileggi, based in London and born in Chicago, is a womenswear designer known for his dark and sumptuous style and precise attention to fabrics and cuts. His inspiration comes from the ideas of petulance and glamour. Pileggi is a recent graduate of Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art in London.
INXX is a platform where international high-street enthusiasts in China come together. INXX works with the world’s top brands – everyone from fashion icons to street-level devotees in China. The “X” as denoted in the brand name, represents exploration and intersection with infinite possibilities. INXX is a unique fusion of subcultures, streetwear, and contemporary and vintage fashion. It strives to forge new trends at the cusp of the avant-garde but still remain relevant in the street.
