Siki Im Fall/Winter 2012

Siki Im made a trip back to his youth for Fall 2012, returning to his youthful interest in American culture and American brands during the mid-90s when he played basketball in Germany and aspired to the heights of Michael Jordan’s success. The result was a collection that played with this season’s penchant for athletics-inspired pieces while still maintaining the sharp forms and minimalist aesthetic that Im is known for. Cable-knit tank tops had the shape of basketball jerseys, and cotton fleece made its appearance in a series of sweatshirts and pants that looked comfortable and easy without losing their structure. A number of shirts drifted down to mid-thigh, echoing the exaggeratedly loose fit of most NBA uniforms two decades ago, and burgundy cemented its status as one of the season’s most popular hues. James Pecis’ hair was inspired David Beckham and Dolph Lundgren’s Ivan Drago, while Benjamin Puckey gave the models a gloss for a slightly sweaty, post-workout look. Showing in a high school gymnasium was just the icing on the cake.
