HAN is an Australian fashion label with foundations formed on a harmonious mixture of refined minimalist architectural design crossed with classical construction. Founded in 2012 by Khim Hang, the label’s design ethos promotes performance and longevity, with the designer internationally pairing down pieces with thoughtful precision and subtle perfection, ultimately evoking the chic found in simplicity. Born in Melbourne, Creative Director Hang termed his label after his Cambodian-born name meaning ‘golden child’, a tribute to his parents’ lucky escape from the Khmer Rouge during Pol Pot’s regime. Citing fashion industry luminary David Bush, the former General Manager of Buying for powerhouse David Jones as his creative mentor, Hang’s visionary collections reflect his meticulous attention to fine detail, channelling an engineers’ scope of creation and execution with emphasis on masterful craftsmanship and the precise calculation of garment construction. HAN’s celebration of subtle perfection, with structural silhouettes and sleek tailoring, has resonated with the industry, achieving widespread acclaim from his peers including being named one of the top five most successful brand models of 2013 for Monocle Magazine’s Style Directory; being the youngest to hold an individual show at Australian Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in 2013; featuring on Style.com; and receiving a nomination for the 2014 Woolmark Awards in the menswear category.
