Sunday, September 9th during New York Fashion Week at Spring Studios label JUST IN XX presented the Spring / Summer 2019 collection “F@$HITION”. Guests were surprised by a live performance in the middle of the show by rapper OZI. Men’s, women’s and plus size looks graced the runway. The street-wear looks included stripes, hand prints, baseball caps with glasses, earrings  and shoes courtesy of NIKE. Front row guests included: Actress Malgosia Garnys, The Backpack Kid (creator of the “Floss” dance), and Chris Lavish.

F@$HITION, the SS19 collection of designer Justin Yu-Ying Chou, blurs the boundaries between modern life and art. In an era that largely still worships a specific type of prettiness, Chou seeks to disrupt the idea of beauty in any standard form. The Taiwanese streetwear designer is no stranger to dichotomy, a theme woven throughout the collection’s concept. Built on the belief that “beauty should not be constrained to one standard”, Chou takes his curvy wife, Tung, as muse, using unbalanced geometric lines, twisted patterns and distressed tailoring to demonstrate the beauty of various human figures and to further toying with the idea of high fashion. Using clothing as an outlet to criticize the age of mass social media use and widespread photo retouching, Chou expresses himself through a refined yet blasé approach to JUST IN XX Spring/ Summer collection.

In the evolving fashion world there is also a demand for perfection that lies beneath. F@$HITION is both an artistic reaction and a collection about reclaiming identity. It’s about the power of rebranding unique as its own kind of beauty, and each piece illustrates this through the sophistication of the imperfect. JUST IN XX invites you to join us in observing clothing in real life, and to join in the discussion on the evolving reality of fashion @ #JUSTINXX.
