It’s infinitely great when the designer knows what she’s good at, and even better when she doesn’t hesitate to focus on the exact stuff that made her who she is. Denim, shredded denim in particular, is undoubtedly Kiok’s specialty, and the minute top model Soyoung Kang opened the show with a denim jacket that’s two things awesomely beautiful: distressed and white, it finally felt safe to breathe a sigh of relief. There were no surprises, but it was a concise display of Kiok’s history, and where it will be heading from here. One thing is clear: it’s all about denim, and that is enough to keep the fans happy.

It was day four, and it rained… but that didn’t stop us, fashion people, from dressing properly.
As much as I’m a big fan of big clothes, it is not the easiest style to work with, because as you can imagine, it can easily make you look something like five pounds heavier.
Which is why it’s important to go with pieces designed by experts who design with the potential side effect in mind.
Enter J KOO Street, a new casual street wear line of J KOO.
The culottes and shirt/jacket combo is the best denim ensemble I’ve encountered lately not only in terms of style but the way they fit… and the comfort! They are perfect everyday pieces that can be styled in so many different ways that they’ve quickly become staples in my wardrobe. (No, this is NOT a sponsored post)
They are part hip-hop, part casual, part swag minus the usual pretentiousness that tends to come with street wear.
In the meantime, I shall be waiting impatiently for the online shop to open. Make sure to check for updates on Studiojkoo.com!
