NINA YUUN stands for inspiration, sustainability, and aesthetic elegance. The Korean-Swiss womenswear label, with its appealing combination of clean, refined cuts and colours creates versatile staple pieces for "living lotus" under the zero-waste principle.
The international designer Nina Yuun was born in New Jersey and grew up in Seoul, before transferring her creative life to Switzerland. An art school graduate, Yuun maintains an enduring passion for colours, shapes, and materials, and she transposes her personality and international perspective into unique designs.
In September 2018, Nina Yuun debuted at the Mode Suisse Edition 14 fashion show, where she presented her Spring/Summer 2019 collection. In addition to regular appearances at Mode Suisse, NINA YUUN has been presented to date in Paris, Shanghai, Beijing, Dunedin (New Zealand), San Francisco and Seoul.
The FW19 collection 'Swirl: The Myth of Authority' received a grant from Switzerland's Arts Council Pro Helvetia. NINA YUUN has been nominated for the Design Prize Switzerland 2019/20.
"Nina Yuun was in a class of her own: fresh, subtle, and wearable, while also idiosyncratic and modern. This kind of fashion – beautiful fabrics, exciting shapes, clever details and fine colors – is ideal both on the hanger (for everyday wear) and on Instagram. She has basically achieved the impossible. These are the clothes you want to buy, wear, and show off online" - Jeroen van Rooijen, style critique
"Eternally inspired by her Korean-Swiss heritage, Nina Yuun creates subtle, clean and unmistakably modern womenswear. Debuting at Mode Suisse in 2018, this year’s collection reflects the label’s evolution with precise craftsmanship and elegant details." - Indie Mag
"Nina Yuun’s dresses come across as fluffy as freshly whipped cream. The sort you love to slather on your cake, ice creme or best, as topping on your coffee. After all, Yuun’s designs pair minimalism with intricacy, a combination which lends the Swiss fashion scene its spice." - FACES Magazine
NINA YUUN "impresses with light and expansive designs featuring warm, earthy shades. (...) No superfluous appliques here, closures rather consist of imaginatively placed, individual buttons or loops. The entire presentation radiates a calm, Jil Sanders-like elegance, seemingly long forgotten when given all the hype about street and workwear, ever so prevalent over the last few years." - interview.de
