Dude, this guy came out of nowhere. I hadn’t even heard the name ‘Dion Lee‘ until I saw his A/W 14/15 collection (seen above) posted somewhere in the sea of copious NYFW posts and tweets (can’t remember where – Fashion156 maybe?). And boy have I been missed out. The guy is super young, still new to the NYFW rotation (this is only his second season, I believe), and, according to the Internets, the label is made in Australia. And, while here and there a piece reminds me vaguely of something (the middle looks up top remind me in general of that Thomas Tait collection, for example), he’s doing stuff I haven’t seen anywhere. I even love his S/S 14 collection (below), which means a lot given my deep-seated season bias. Mr. Lee, not only do you have a new fan, but you may have just single-handedly restored NYFW’s reputation for me.
