Here is a collaboration of mass proportions with Suitman, Dita, Visvim and On Pedder all coming together on a defining collection. Renowned creative Young Kim aka Suitman is a pivotal part of the collection that also includes eyewear label Dita, fashion label Visvim and Hong Kong based boutique On Pedder. Transpiring his “Suitman” persona that is identified by a black suit and signature frames, Dita and Visvim offer a great platform for the products.
On Pedder, Dita, visvim and Suitman released their high-profile collaboration at an intimate gathering. The collection was put on display which includes eyewear with Dita and shirt-style aprons with visvim. Alongside the collection release, Suitman (aka Young Kim) was on hand to take candid portrait shots of individuals dressed in his iconic glasses and suit outfit.
American-Korean artist Young Kim also known as Suitman uses the suit and shirt attire as his key signature of his art. His projects span over two decades and Young’s passion of having others partake in his art founded ‘Suitman is everywhere’ photo session campaign five years ago. Every so often Young brings his camera to the streets and asks passers by to dress up as Suitman for a photo opportunity. Through his road show experience, Young created his unique ‘pull-over’ style suit and bib shirt set which gave convenience and comfort during his many travels.? After almost twelve months, the On Pedder x Suitman x visvim bib shirt collection will be launched on July 30th at a launch event in On Pedder. All items are limited in quantities and will be available exclusively in On Pedder store until August 15th, 2010. When in Hong Kong, be sure to check out the exhibition as well as the products.
