MISOMBER NUAN is devoted to creating a façade none other than to communicate the duality of the human psyche, the universality of such an existence. The aesthetic aims to provoke an upsetting and resetting of the stasis between the precise craftsmanship of the garments and the emotional representation of the inexplicable sense of eeriness.
Our methodology begins with disturbing the premise underlying elements prevalent in conventional cuts and with deliberating on neglected subtleties. Visually provocative details in the collection are symbolic references of atypical human behaviour embedded within the human psyche. Their gradual surfacing to the façade conveys the process of coming to terms with one’s vulnerability and resignation to an order beyond one’s control.
Composed of abstracted illusive thoughts, ”MISOMBER", an interpretation of the dismal human psyche and ”NUAN", a veiled presence of the designer together craft a vision that is the reflection of emptiness and void, hidden details, mysterious veils, strong emotions and finally, the desire to connect subliminally with the audience.
The designer (1979) started his debut collection a year prior to his graduation in 2006, garnering a great deal of media attention as he went along to win top places in several Fashion Design awards throughout Asia from 2005 to 2007.
After a few years in his apprenticeship in textile production, he decided to focus and move into designing. In search to further his design philosophy, he spent a yearlong hiatus traveling the world in isolation from the fashion industry. It was during this time he contemplated on the human self and began distilling the pebbles of thought that would gradually form the path he would eventually embark on.
Since 2006, he started presenting small collections from time to time for selected cliente through custom orders only.
In 2009 he set up his label “MISOMBER NUAN” , followed by the Self #01 collection that premiered exclusively in Darklands, Berlin.
