CRES. E DIM. Draws from the musical term ‘crescendo e diminuendo,’ with ‘CRES’ meaning ‘getting gradually louder,’ and ‘DIM’ reflectively meaning ‘getting gradually softer’ – Hongbum Kim applied this theory to his fashion identity.
His philosophy involves juxtaposing the look of a naturally flowing river against strong shapes, cuts and color.
CRES. E. DIM’s Fall Winter 2013 collection is titled, “Secondary Nature.” The collection expresses nature’s mystery with different methods using Technology (secondary nature) and inspiration drawn from Tokujin Yoshioka and Helmut Newton.
