Creative Director Hee Min Yang
“Comprehending human beings through clothes is difficult. What’s more difficult is to ignore clothes.
Thus, the attitude towards clothing has to be serious as you mean it.
However, making clothes is not all that difficult. It is rather an enjoyable job. When I imagine someone getting ready to go out.
As wearing the clothes solely produced by my hands, in which my conception is fully reflected, everything becomes clear to me.”
– written by vandal, September 1, 2006, launching “Vandalist”
Vandalist’s designer as well as creative director, vandal was once an underground musician. Majoring in fashion at Yonsei university, he always sought for ways to combine musical sensibility and fashion.
Industrial domains are determined by business perspectives, but they are not necessarily binding to consumers.
Vandal strongly believes that different realms in the industry will become meaningless in the future.
Vandalist continuously strives for new and fresh possibility.
As a designer, musician who composes his own runway music and releases albums, editor as he publishes his own magazines, and interior designer, Vandalist, derived from vandalism (as a creative destruction), and Hee-min’s English name, vandal, represent his desire and strong will for novelty.
Vandalist pursues extraordinary in ordinary style.
Chic & wit
Vandalist maintains affordable uniqueness of silhouette and style.
This line consists of season-less clothes that can be easily mixed & matched.
Vandal’s philosophy and conception are reflected in his clothes, music, Vandalist collection.
