Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: the studio k

SFW S/S 2015: the studio k

Now only if someone would explain what “Studio K” means, or where in the world it’s located, at least.. really hoping it’s not in Garosugil or somewhere in Gangnam where the designer Hong, Hye Jin’s office is located because that’d immediately take all the fun and fantasy out of it. Hence I digress… A border,…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: MISS GEE COLLECTION

SFW S/S 2015: MISS GEE COLLECTION

As one of Korea’s most long-running and experienced womenswear fashion designers, Gee Choon Hee never fails to present a show that is both dramatic and romantic. Her Spring ’15 collection wasn’t an exception as she attempted to illustrate “unconsciousness” through the use of calm colors and clean silhouettes with minimal stitch work all the while…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: RESURRECTION

SFW S/S 2015: Resurrection

Masculinity can mean different things- or can it? While the rest of Korea is drowning in 90′s pop culture (myself not-so-secretly included), it’s become apparent that what’s considered sexy for men has changed a lot over the years. Actually, I’m not so sure about the rest of the world but at least for me, there…

New York Fashion Week Spring 2015: Yuna Yang

NYFW S/S 2015: YUNA YANG

At first glance, Yang’s designs look particularly feminine, but look twice, and you’ll see that it’s so much more than that: there’s something modern, artistic, strong and even empowering in them that makes it not just another “pretty” womenswear collection but an exceptional one at that. In congruence with the theme, her spring offering has…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: Ordinary People

SFW S/S 2015: Ordinary People

This spring, “Ordinary People” go on a trip in polka dots, daisy dukes, coolest capris and sleeveless chambray button-downs. Don’t you just wish the guys you randomly come across on a trip to Europe looked like this? Now that would be the most romantic thing ever. In all seriousness though, even after so many seasons and…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: SURREAL BUT NICE

SFW S/S 2015: SURREAL BUT NICE

If there is a ranking solely dedicated to brand names, Surreal but Nice would be on top of the list as the most confusing, illogical yet still kind-of-cool brand. “What do mean ‘but nice?’ Since when was surrealism not nice?” a slew of artists who were nothing but revolutionary including Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp and Joan…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: ROLIAT

SFW S/S 2015: ROLIAT

Please tell me I’m not the only one who was confused and a bit uncomfortable to find out that the theme of Roliat’s spring collection was “Boudoir”? Because you know, the first thing that came to mind was an image of a woman sitting on a fancy bed in her prettiest piece of lingerie, thanks…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: PUSH BUTTON

SFW S/S 2015: PUSH BUTTON

So apparently I’m either prophetic or secretly possess some kind of superpower that allows me to see people’s past without having studied it. A close source tells me that the designer of the uberpopular brand, Push Button, used to be a stylist. And not only that, he was a model too. Although I only got…
