INHALE is a cultural platform where artists are presented, where great projects are given credit and readers find inspiration. Think about Inhale as if it were a map: we can help you discover which are the must-see events all over the world, what is happening now in the artistic and cultural world as well as guide you through the latest designers’ products. Inhale interconnects domains that you are interested in, so that you will know all the events, places, galleries, studios that are a must-see. We have a 360 degree overview on art and culture and a passion to share.
It’s always refreshing, discovering new designers and a surprising source of inspiration behind their work. Minju Kim belongs to the game-changing designers, and not only did she graduate from Antwerp’s Academy of Fine Arts but before that she took home the H&M Design Award for her collection “Dear, My Friend”. Now “Be Cover” is her final collection that was inspired by the green witch Elphaba from “Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz” musical. She gave her a new exterior to match the way she saw her braveness and kindness, leaving aside the prejudice that followed her. Kind of like, this collection became the happy end to a fairy tail, and to all of us seeking for the leading designers of tomorrow.
