The brand of high-end accessories, right now on everyone’s lips, was founded two years ago by the genius of Youngwon Kim and has conquered the major European squares in a short span of time, thus obtaining a very important international showcase for the growth of the label. The South Korean Youngwon Kim studied (and still lives) in London at the College of Fashion, University of the Arts London, graduating in 2010 and specializing in 2013, year in which she successfully participates in the International Talent Support in Trieste. The desire to be autonomous in both style and production decisions, pushes her to create her own label. The approach to the world of bags has been cautious having being formed in the world of footwear, whose processing techniques she however succeeded in transferring those into the accessory. Each piece is unique, designed with clear precision and made with fine leather. In particular, the designer takes inspiration from contemporary architecture and modern art, from paintings by Picasso and the radical and Dadaist thinking of Marcel Duchamp. London aroused the strings of her creativity, the culturally rich city, loaded in traditions, has been particularly generous with her. Elegant, essential and modern, with a touch of originality, colour is a prominent element in all Youngown Kim’s creations. The colour block of the leather summarizes the synthetic and geometric shapes of the brand, thus defining an almost genderless, experimental image. Neither too small nor too large, bags are suitable for everyday use giving a touch of style thanks to sophisticated geometric shapes and non-trivial, structured and specular volumes, perfect to make the accessory versatile in every occasion, from day to evening.

In Lin and Xuan’s own words: “Nil Naux is a bag brand without an exciting story. The brand was born with the aim to make down-to-earth bags”. We talked about their collection with the two Chinese designers based in Milano. While working as a project manager for a Chinese company, Xuan took a group of technicians to ARSUTORIA school for the training course. There, she fell in love with the charm of leather, so, later on, she quit her job and took the bag making course at the Milanese school.
