Kaimin is a female-founded, high-tech, gender-fluid fashion label based in New York City. Through non-traditional, high-concept development, KAIMIN promotes innovation and inclusivity, collaborating closely with icons like Bjork, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Blackpink and many others globally. The part-south Korean, part-Japanese Kaimin founded her eponymous brand in 2016 together with her business partner Dmitri Pchelintsev.
Drawing inspiration from New York’s underground and street culture, while supporting various up-and-coming creatives, KAIMIN bridges social planes and empowers innovators across the spectrum. Kaimin’s futuristic designs use elements of subculture and punk to create a surreal demeanor that is still delicate and feminine. Gender boundaries are intentionally de-emphasized, allowing Kaimin’s signature love for abstraction and primeval sexuality to come to the fore in a playful way.
KAIMIN recently launched the "SLFF KAIMIN" line to bring the label's signature design and its creative community to a wider audience, starting with a collection of denim and a brand-new line of lingerie "FOR ALL". SLFF KAIMIN stands for self-confidence, individuality, and inner strength, channeling sexuality and an unrelenting drive to peek into the future.
The KAIMIN brand is thoroughly intertwined with the digital world and leans heavily on technology for everything from content and branding with digital art and AR/VR, to design, to commerce analytics. KAIMIN utilizes state-of-the-art and sustainable materials as well as leading-edge production techniques, including an official partnership with global 3d-printing leader, Stratasys.
