Young self-taught designer from Montreal Josh Reim released his first collection in 2013, right after graduating from high school. Since then, he had produced another four collections, each representing inspirited and bold gender-neutral pieces.
The latest SS16 collection exhibits a free and playful spirit, which encourages a set of sensibilities and eclecticism within a wardrobe of a young person. The collection represents the aesthetic, that could seem insouciant from the first glimpse.
Yet, all the pieces are hand-stitched by Reim, where he is using hand-dyed fabrics and patchwork linen. The details, such as little lovely balloon motifs, hidden monogrammed pockets and quilted lining make the collection really authentic. “I think being young and naive means that you’re not necessarily aware of the rules that are meant to be followed within an industry, therefore you come out of it with a different take on things,” added Josh.
