JUNWEI LIN’s designs extend from her belief in the ‘ragged romanticism’ that exists in her vision of modern masculinity. Her design philosophy plays with the nuances of manhood by referencing contemporary womenswear and men’s period clothing, all whilst emphasizing craftsmanship and quality. Visually impactful and wearable, her pieces have made their way onto the pages of HERO, Schön!, GQ China and Sicky Magazine.
As of her second collection, her stockists include Lane Crawford.
JUNWEI LIN is an independent designer whose vision is characterized by a ’Ragged Romanticism.’ Age 15, Junwei left her native China to live and study abroad in Australia, UK and US, graduating from London College of Fashion into an MA at Parsons NY. Having lived between East and West, Junwei’s work is sensitive to human emotions and social phenomena. Through the deconstruction and rethinking of traditional menswear underlined by her romantic ideals, in addition to her willingness to adopt a womenswear approach, Junwei hopes to craft a more nuanced definition of menswear.
