Yang Seung-ho’s first collection for XYN. XYN.
The prominent creative director, also known as Yang Seung-ho, rose to fame after styling girl group 2NE1 and becoming a major fashion influence for G-Dragon. On March 12, he announced the launch of his own brand, XYN, alongside a unisex capsule collection in collaboration with Matthew Williams’ 1017 ALYX 9SM.
Despite lacking traditional fashion design experience, Xin, who studied fine art at Central Saint Martins, has created custom pieces for his clients and has found the role less challenging than expected, he told Highsnobiety. Xin struck up a friendship with Williams after the two met in Seoul; he was invited to walk in three Alyx runway shows, including the most recent one.
