The Nine with Siki Im

With the 2010 Ecco Domani Fashion Fund’s Best New Menswear designer award under his belt, Siki Im’s Spring/Summer 2011 menswear collection, Isolation/Integration – inspired by the 1995 film, La Haine, staring Vincent Cassel and directed by French-actor Mathieu Kassovitz – continues to address socio-cultural themes through his minimalist design aesthetic. Contrast to his fashion film for Fall/Winter 2010 American Psycho-inspired collection, S/S 2011 takes on a slower and surveillant approach. We caught up with the busy designer and got a peek into the studios of Siki Im. Continue…

Right now I’m at… my studio

And wearing… Siki Im sweater, Helmut Lang jeans, vintage military tunic, Siki Im oxfords, CK briefs, Kenzo cologne and Sinn watch.

I like to indulge… in sleep.

If I could be any character in fiction I’d be… Karlsson-on-the-Roof.

The last dream I remember having…

Men should never wear… something louder than they are.

My next purchase will be… lunch.

I’m now reading… The Art of War by Sun Tzu.

For my autobiographical film I’d cast… someone Asian?
