Collection – Trashy Boy

It's a story of a young guy who goes to trashy clubs wearing trashy clothes. The collection is inspired by 80's and 90's trashy and "ugly" fashion and styles, this is our interpretation of them with our soft and dreamy touch. We continued to use and further develop our signature fabric treatments devore and cracked. All the collages are designed by Giovanni Pacienza.

Key’s work explores the identity of Asian men through the roots of their sensuous cultures and aesthetics. His personal design process involves the hybridities in Eastern and Western clothing, masculine and feminine representations and the traditional textile crafts with the latest fashion technology. Key graduated from the Royal College of Art in London with a Master’s degree in Fashion Menswear in 2015 following the scholarships he obtained by winning the Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award (YDTA) and the Hong Kong Fashion Designers’ Association Talent Award. He was nominated as one of the finalists at the H&M Design Award for his graduate collection, which was showcased in “DOUBLE JE” contemporary art exhibition in Palais de Tokyo in Paris.
