The 24-year-old Parsons, New-York, graduate refuses to be defined by location or gender norms — he just wants to make clothes that inspire people.
He's spent time in Stockholm, where he became both the first designer from the US and the first menswear designer to win the H&M Design Award, he's shown with VFiles at NYFW, and he's hung out in Paris with Karl Lagerfeld and Kanye West — who told him he was, "killing it," after seeing his recent collection at the semifinalist showcase for the prestigious LVMH Prize.
Lee says his focus is primarily menswear, he insists he doesn't want to be locked into one category. His pieces are best described as architectural, oversized and streetwear- inspired, with a palette of blacks, light greys and oceanic blues.
