About

THE BRAND

Embrace Your Ambiguity, Reinforce Your Character.

We believe fashion shouldn’t have divisions. Men should be able to wear feminine elements as women are able to wear masculine elements as they wish while embracing his or her own ambiguity.
Subin Hahn Fluidwear focuses on diversity and fluidity through non-binary clothing designed for all genders. Apart from traditional men's and womenswear, "fluidwear" encourages individuals to explore fashion in their own way, and to create beauty in fluidity.

The style of unisex fashion is predominantly masculine, minimal, and more focused on utilitarian aesthetic. Many different unisex styles were introduced in fashion history, yet eventually, unisex fashion became alternative menswear, with the exceptions of a few designers’ works. Traditionally feminine and elaborate elements are not often considered gender-neutral styles, and our brand wishes feminine beauty to be equally appreciated as gender-neutral fashion.

As women successfully adopted men’s fashion and made it their own in the mainstream, men should be able to do the same by adopting women’s clothing. The future of fashion is in fluidity, without any boundaries. Everyone has a right to express their own individuality.

 

 

THE DESIGNER

 

Subin Hahn is a “Fluidwear” designer. Taken from traditionally feminine elements, his designs challenge traditional mens and unisex fashion aesthetics, aiming to provide diverse choices and equal opportunities in contemporary fashion, while embracing his or her own ambiguity and fluidity.

Based on his belief that art is a spiritual activity that conveys one’s faith and belief, he aims to help the wearers bring out their own spirits through his designs and to give hope of a better future, by creating the illusion of a world that he wishes to belong with.

Born in Suwon, South Korea, Subin received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Parsons School of Design in New York. He started his career as an intern at Zac Posen and continued working at Marchesa, Calvin Klein, and Vaquera in New York. In 2018 he joined the shoe design team at Marc Jacobs and worked for runway and contemporary shoes.
