F****** Young! Online's XIMONLEE Editorial Exclusive is Vanguard

YahRock Bates stars in the XIMONLEE editorial exclusive for F****** Young! Online. The model is captured by photographer Masha Demianova's lens while posing in pieces from designer XIMONLEE‘s BA graduate collection.

The collection pieces embody a vanguard visual aesthetic that is inspired by the attire of Russian street youth. After a recent visit to Russia, the designer took his style inspiration from the nation's youth who often layered together mismatched clothing items in order to keep warm in cold winter months.

The result is a collection of deconstructed silhouettes and repurposed thrift shop garments that resemble the garb of Russia's underprivileged teens. These fashion-forward pieces from XIMONLEE also mimic discarded cardboard packages and other elements one may typically find in Russian slums.
