Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: GROUNDWAVE

SFW S/S 2015: GROUNDWAVE

So let me tell you this much: Kim Sunho’s Groundwave was shown not only on the first day of Seoul Fashion Week which is reserved for menswear, but when Soojoo was sent down the runway, I had to double-check the schedule to see if I was in a wrong show. This was my third time seeing…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: 87MM

SFW S/S 2015: 87mm

Truth be told, there is no such thing as a career for models. Having been in the fashion industry for a bit now, I’ve learned that modeling is more of a seasonal, temporary job that should serve as a stepping stone for something else that you really want to do with your life later on. This…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: JINTEOK

SFW S/S 2015: JINTEOK

  In the field of fashion, there are artists; then there are businesspeople. While the latter tend to build wealth and fame in a relatively short amount of time, it’s the former that makes a lasting impression, influencing generation after generation. In her years as a fashion designer which spans almost 50 years, Jinteok has…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: JAYHO

SFW S/S 2015: Jayho

An alley is an interesting place. Filled with mystery and secrets, it’s where we hang out but also a place where we run to when we wish to get out of the reality. It’s where people meet, where emotions converge. On that note, Jayho’s S/S ’15 collection is an intuitive interpretation of the aptly selected…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: STEVE J & YONI P

SFW S/S 2015: STEVE J & YONI P

Themed, “21st Renaissance,” Steve J & Yoni P presented another compelling collection inspired by ancient plants and statues. As one of the most anticipated shows of the week, front row was star-studded as usual, as well as the riser and the rest of the space being completely (and I mean it) packed.. to a point…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: CARUSO

SFW S/S 2015: CARUSO

Inspired by a childhood memory, menswear designer Chang Kwang Hyo’s S/S ’15 collection is filled with nature and childhood innocence, the interaction of the two and the residuals of it, both the splendor and terror of that certain moment. “This is a story from my boyhood. It was a drowsy afternoon at the peak of summer…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: METROCITY

SFW S/S 2015: METROCITY

Besides the fact that the supermodel Hye Park tripped not once but twice, can we talk about how horrendously embarrassing this collection was? Perhaps it was the presence of superstar Jessica Alba that intensified whatever I was feeling inside, but all I could think about was whether this was some kind of joke. It was…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: LEYII

SFW S/S 2015: LEYII

With emphasis on the beauty of female body, LEYII is known for her experimental approach to contemporary femininity that is both mystical and experimental achieved through minimalistic designs. Her new collection is a product of her intelligent use of rhythmical curves found in the works of Alexander Calder, an American sculptor famous for his abstract…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: VanHart di Albazar

SFW S/S 2015: VanHart di Albazar

As a brand that initially sparked my interest in Korean fashion, VanHart has always had a place in my heart as a brand that almost perfectly captures sophisticated masculinity with a true Italian flair and a subtle touch of Korean sensuality. This, along with the brand’s ambitious vision of achieving the global luxury status continued to escalate…
