The renowned Korean stylist launched his own label Xyn in tandem with a collaboration with cult label 1017 ALYX 9SM founded by Givenchy creative director Matthew M. Williams

Seungho Yang aka Xin is best known for joining YG Entertainment and crafting the signature style of beloved girl group 2NE1 since their debut. Soon after, Xin, who attended Central Saint Martins in London, became a close friend of G-Dragon, and creative directed his "ACT III, M.O.T.T.E" World Tour. 

Now he brings his talents to his own line Xyn with a six-piece capsule of edgy, black streetwear separates and a limited edition collaboration with New York label 1017 ALYX 9SM. The idea first came after the latter's spring-summer 2020 show where Xin (a house friend and occasional model for the brand) was approached by founder Matthew M. Williams' daughter Alyx. Xin asked Alyx to scribble their two names together and the idea for "Alyxyn" was born. The clothes also feature thermoresponsive properties, so the graphic on the hoodie and the phone bag change colour when touched.

The pieces are available now at 1017 ALYX 9SM and Boontheshop.
