Seoul Fashion Week Fall 2014: How And What

1So… I thought uptown only existed in New York but apparently, there is one in Seoul according to designer Park, Byung Kyu of How and What. With a theme titled Uptown Girl in Seoul, this collection is an reinterpretation of what a modern, city girl looks like at night. Let’s call it a girls’ night out… before the pretty girls get drunk and things get wild.

2Must mention how amazing the makeup and hair was… romantic and sultry at the same time.

Seoul Fashion Week Fall 2013: How and What

Survival of the Sexiest: While the exact theme for the collection has yet to be identified, what is certain is that this was indeed the sexiest show of the week, with loads of thigh-high boots, ruffles, fringe, sky-high heels, plenty of pleather, and bold accessories paired with black, white, and sometimes shiny hot numbers, which seemed overindulgent at times but entertaining for sure.

Maybe a bit off topic and kind of strange, but really digging her bob cut… This too shall pass though, it must be that time of the year (you know, when you are dangerously tempted to cut your hair, whether it’s the bangs or changing the entire style, etc.).

Yes, peplum is here to stay… and those boots that looked like a bandage added a barely-there effect adding an edge to the look.

Louis Vuitton really hit it big this time, because the checkerboard has not only hit the streets of Seoul but the runways too… hard.

Stephanie Lee, in her petite frame, mile-high-legs, and a elegant yet sexy facial features that scream “Korea,” she rocks anything and everything with class and charm.

Aside from all the sexy gothic goodness, what got me crushing was the rings… the ornamented nail rings, that is. How clever are they especially for someone who just doesn’t have time to sit in a nail salon or just can’t deal with long nails in general?

hw8

Didn’t expect to see Kang So Young looking so good as a blond, I honestly couldn’t focus on the clothes when she walked past me. She’s got charisma that exudes from confidence and experience that it’s almost hypnotizing.

Fringe is back and in a whole new way. How cool is this zip on/off fringe that turns a peacoat into a maxi dress at night?
