Phillip Lim was born in Thailand, in 1973 to Chinese immigrants (Phillip’s father is from Hunan and mother is from Canton) who then fled to Southern California to escape Cambodias civil war, where his mother found work as a seamstress and his father became a professional poker player. While his mother has clearly had an early influence on his ethos, Lim didn’t fantasize of being a designer. Lim studied finance for three years at California State University of Long Beach, where it became evident that Lim was sitting in the wrong classroom and he found himself switching to a degree in home economics. Whilst unpacking boxes at a weekend job at Barneys in Beverly Hills, Lim came across the name of adesigner called Katayone Adeli’s. Lim had his own career epiphany: he would call Adeli’s office and ask to work for the designer. Despite not knowing what a portfolio was, he got himself an internship and eventually through his innate talent and tenacity, a position with her design team. When Adeli relocated to New York, Phillip Lim remained in the Los Angeles area and co-founded his first label, Development. After four years at Development, Lim, 31, departed to launch his most personal collection to date with business partner and friend, Wen Zhou, also 31. This meant switching coasts to New York, where he now works and resides inSoho. Phillip Lim debuted his eponymous brand, 3.1 Phillip Lim, in the fall of 2005, bucking the ostentatiousrunway trends of the time, his line of youthfully elegant wardrobe classics with a twist, was an instant sensation and adored by critics , fashion editors and customers alike. Widespread recognition of Lim’s talent and accolades quickly followed, including the award for the 2006 Fashion Group Internationals Women’s Designer ‘Rising Star and the 2007 CFDA Swarovski Award in Womenswear. After only five years , Lim as creative director and co-founder of 3.1 Phillip Lim, finds himself at the helm of a pioneering contemporary brand- designing women’s, men’s , kids, accessories, shoes, underpinnings - making him one of the most talented and successful young designers today.

A DÉTACHER is a clothing label, a store, and a selection of objects and art. It is the project/business of Monika Kowalska. A DÉTACHER clothes are individual explorations into surface, form and function – a research into the formal posture of each garment. We further these explorations by creating a context in which they can reside. We fill the surrounding space with objects by designers, artisans and artists from around the world, creating a dialogue about form and function, but also about the power and importance of objects in our lives. We feel that the number of possible contexts is infinite. By offering a limited range of housewares, books and fetish objects, A DÉTACHER presents a selection of desirable objects and hopes that people will take the time to find their own. We look to our consumer to give our clothing their own spiritual posture – to use them in their own fashion.

Founded in Stockholm in 1996 by four creatives, Acne’s ambition was to create and develop a lifestyle brand through the production of desirable products as well as helping others build their brands. This ambition led to diverse assignments in advertising, graphic design and television production.Acne witnessed a space in the market for denim and utilised this forward thinking nature to create 100 pairs of unisex jeans. The denim garnered press and short thereafter leading boutiques wanted to carry the characteristic jeans with bright-red stitching. These are the foundations of Acne. Acne Studios unites innovative jeans styles with a versatile wardrobe for men and women, ranging from basic cotton T-shirts, to tailored jackets to luxurious accessories and shoes. While every collection forms a concept, each piece can be worn separately and effortlessly be mixed with other brands. By designing simple, functional clothes Acne aims to create a modern framework for individuality. Founded in Stockholm 1996, Acnes ambition was to create and develop their own products as well as helping other people to build their brands. This ambition led to numerous assignments in advertising, graphic design, Internet games and TV production. As a part of the creative collective ACNE, Acne started in 1997 when the company designed 100 pairs of jeans distributed to friends, family and clients. Soon, several stores and boutiques wanted to carry the line, much to do with the characteristic bright-red stitching on raw denim. From these humble beginnings Acne has developed into a renowned jeans brand. The first realcollection was launched in 1998. Since then Acne Creative Director Jonny Johansson has worked with a skilful design team to create a strong identity for the brand. In 2003 the company opened their first Acne Studios in PK-huset in central Stockholm. The second studio opened in Copenhagen in December the following year. And three more opened in 2005, a second in both Stockholm and Copenhagen, and the first German studio opened in Mitte Berlin. The label is also represented through more than 450 retailers around the world. Among the well-known stores that carry the collections are Colette in Paris, Selfridges, and Brown’s Focus in London, Louis in Antwerp, Quartier 206 in Berlin, Barneys in New York and Lane Crawford in Hong. In 2000 ACNE STUDIOS received Swedish ELLEs Designer of the Year award. The company won the Café Magazine fashion award in 2003, and received Damernas Världs design award Guldknappen in 2004. The same year Acne was received ELLEs Denim Designer of the Year award. Acne Studios is today recognized internationally as a creative collective, unique for its corporate diversity such as fashion design, graphic design, film production and advertising, as well as product, business and concept development.

Nature and beauty, style and sophistication, handcraft and innovation. These are the values that generate a luxury of substance and not merely appearance, a luxury that emanates an unmistakeable yet discreet aura of refined understatement. Only the rarest fibres, worked in a style rooted in the cult of the genuine and natural, a style that develops in a continual process of product innovation. High technology thus marries the wisdom of craftsmanship in a production process that is all “Made in Italy”. They are then worked in a sophisticated and contemporary style that expresses itself in refined, minimal lines, softly enveloping forms and infinite care over detail. Every detail, in fact, is designed to have aesthetic value in its own. right, which in turn gives a garment a sophisticated touch that will never go unobserved. The choice of colours follows and respects natural shades, going from white to all the nuances of earth but also enriching the palette with exciting new colours, the fruit of continual and passionate experimentation to find the perfect tone. This creative fascination with style characterizes the whole world of Agnona: it’s seen in the knitwear, which continues, collection after collection, to present surprising new variations in both the ready-to-wear models, such as the dresses of timeless charm and the passe-partout over garments, and, naturally, in the accessories and Home collection.
