Siki Im wins a 2015 Vilcek Prize
The Luxonomist

Siki Im was selected as the winner of a Creative Promise Prize in Fashion for his menswear designs that draw inspiration from architecture, culture, politics, and psychology.  Im is the fashion designer behind SIKI IM, a line of luxury menswear, and DEN IM, a denim and basics extension line.

A former architect, he is interested in the intersections of culture, theory, and psychology within the design process.  Sold in stores worldwide, each of Im’s collections centers on a theme (from immigrants and xenophobia to The Lord of the Flies), which he researches in depth to build into a collection of draped, often unisex pieces.  He seeks to grow his company into a multi-focus creative design studio that also works in architecture and product design.  Siki Im was born in Germany to Korean immigrant parents.
