Written by: Kwesi Adjin
Michiel Van Diem (who goes by simply ‘van Diem’ and can be seen in the video below working on his S/S 2014 collection), owner and Creative Director of European menswear brand Enfin Levé, is a man on a real mission. After a car accident, van Diem was cosmically reminded of how short life is and decided to finally start a fashion brand – this was in 2012. Due to the accident van Diem underwent hand surgery which left a permanent metal mark which he now uses as a personal signature on all his garments. He is a nomadic designer traveling throughout Europe experiencing life, producing garments and looking for unique materials eventually come together to create an aesthetic that is free and true to self. Van Diem creates very versatile limited edition clothes with high quality fabrics and sells them through the Enfin Levé website and exclusive boutiques.
