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: 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…

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: 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…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: CRES. E. DIM.

SFW S/S 2015: CRES. E DIM.

One great thing about having experienced a not-so-memorable past collection is that there is something to look forward to in the next season. And this season, Cres. E. Dim., comes on strong with a collection filled with engaging pieces that not only prove that he’s a qualified designer but that he can embrace and reinterprete “norm core”…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: J KOO

SFW S/S 2015: J KOO

You know it’s a good show when you start anticipating the next look. Quite simply, what sets a good collection apart from those that are average is one that which presents something new in every single look yet mindfully follows the theme by placing main elements of the collection in each look. It should be clear…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: MOOHONG

SFW S/S 2015: MOOHONG

A designer who is on a constant search for harmonies and collisions that emerge when contrasting elements are met, Moohong Kim of designer label, Moohong, seeks communication between fashion and humanity in his spring collection through a simultaneous study of ethnic codes and modern street aesthetics. With emphasis on cultural diversity, the collection is a…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: Beyond Closet

SFW S/S 2015: Beyond Closet

The toughest collection to write about is one that is neither really bad or excellent. It’s those that fall somewhere between the dichotomy but so lukewarm that they basically elicit no emotions. Such tend to be ones that are designed by people who are more business-minded than art or design-driven. Despite having reached the mega popular…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: MUNSOO KWON

SFW S/S 2015: MUNSOO KWON

Dropped crotch and super tight trousers and shorts are not necessarily something I’d dress my boyfriends in; however if you’ve got the height and the legs to pull them off, look no further. These are just a few of Munsoo Kwon’s specialties, who has quickly risen to a celebrity designer status in a few years he’s…
