Discovering... Hien Le

During my fashion research all around the internet I discovered HIEN LE. The young designer was born in Laos (a country located on the west of Vietnam) but grew up in Berlin (Germany), where he's based. A couple of years after finishing his Fashion Design college degree, Hien Le started his eponymous brand. His first collection was Spring/Summer 2011 and it was presented in Berlin Fashion Week. It was followed by some great refined collections that gave Hien Le a well deserved recognition in the industry. His creations have been featured in several magazines and as soon as I discovered more about his work I had the urge to share it with all of you.

I selected my 10 favorite looks from Hien Le's Fall/Winter 2013-14 collection. 5 looks from the menswear line and another 5 looks from womenswear. The cuts are simple, the aesthetic is very sleek and sophisticated. There's a mix of fabrics, colors and textures. I love the way Hien played with knitwear and his chromatic options: from night blue to nude/beige. The lines are classic and fluid and my favorite pieces are the ones with that beautiful degrade fabric. To be honest I would totally see myself wearing those gorgeous pants or those stunning sweaters and shirts.
Women have a lot of options as well, everything's so elegant and comfy but sexy at the same time. Dresses, shorts, pants, gorgeous necklines and even warm jackets. Lovely! Furthermore, everything is absolutely cohesive and I really have to congratulate Hien Le for such good and detailed work. I had the pleasure to chat with him for a couple of minutes and he's a really down to earth young man with a clear genius vision. :)
Check my selection... and I hope you all like it!
