Xllullan

The advanced-designer label Xllullan features modern throwbacks as well as retro and edgy styles. Luxury meets practicality in these designs utilizing Italian and French textiles. Many of the artistic aspects of this brand are drawn from literature, film and visual arts. Nature, which is prominently featured is also matched against manufactured feel of metallic materials. The head designer Xuan was born and raised in Qingdao(Tsingtao), a coastal city in Shandong Province, China. She pursued her education and career in fashion in New York, while majoring in Fashion Design at Parsons and Visual Arts at Eugene Lang. Commenting on her inspiration, she states "at the core of my creative vision lies the idea 'craft meets fashion'." Her goal is to build a visual story around both fashionable and wearable art by using unconventional combinations of materials and innovative fabric treatment techniques. Through the exploration of various fabric manipulations and handmade construction, she aims to create everything from organic textures to architectural silhouettes.
