Brand To Know: Sid Neigum
With the golden ratio at the back of his mind, the up-and-coming Canadian designer – crowned "one to watch" by Vogue – puts the clever back into everyday clothing.| November 7, 2017
When it comes to clothing, we’ve always been the kind of people who believe that drama and pizzazz need not necessarily equate to ostentatious, in-your-face details. It is these kinds of clothing that get the most wear and stay with you the longest, because they’re timeless yet statement-making, minimal yet surprising, dramatic yet versatile. Sid Neigum and his eponymous label are all for that.
Rather than count on embellishments or print, the up-and-coming Canadian designer woos pristine construction and fluid fabrics. Structured pleats crafted from sheer chiffon, coats with elongated sleeves, draped cowl neck velvet gowns of Grecian goddess proportions that seem to ripple with movement.
According to Vogue, Neigum gets his inspiration from his seamstress grandmother. Because she couldn’t afford traditional embellishments, she embellished her clothing with construction instead. Neigum also works the idea of the golden ratio into his clothing. The pieces may come with an ease, but nothing about them is haphazard.
Neigum – whose beau happens to be Chloe Gordon, one half of the design team behind rising label Beaufille – is slowly but surely gaining a following. Net-a-Porter has already picked up his fall collection (and the prices are seriously kind on the wallet). Vogue named him among the “16 Designers Who Won 2016“. He has already dressed the likes of Kim Cattrall, Coco Rocha, Jennifer Aniston and Jada Pinkett Smith. We’re keeping our eye on Neigum, that’s for sure.
