Hong Kong has been making a significant amount of noise in the Asian fashion scene lately, with its flurry of young and talented designers who are pioneering a new age of creativity within the city (check out our guide to the Top Hong Kong Designers to Watch).
One name to learn now is House of V, a range dedicated to offering clothing that is carefully considered and timeless. That being said, designer Thomas Kung‘s creations are anything but boring — finding inspiration in the brand’s name, and in particular “V”, Kung’s designs are thoughtful, classic and modern with a minimalistic appeal that is very on trend.
A graduate of Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Kung has had a clear idea of the direction the brand would follow from the start. House of V’s demand for quality materials, craftsmanship and cutting makes it stand out among the fast fashion of today and the designs appeal to any age group with a taste for subtle elegance. Customers can expect basics that have been carefully manipulated and crafted to be original — pieces that are intended to become archived rather than thrown away after half a season. This clear vision has been pivotal in the brand’s success. House of V has seen success at trade fairs in Paris and Taipei, organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, and made a significant impression on the most elite in Hong Kong’s fashion industry at the recent “Fashion Collective” that was held at The Space in Sheung Wan.
We predict big things for House of V, so best you pop down to their planned flagship Hong Kong store when it opens later in the year.
