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: 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…

New York Fashion Week Spring 2015: Hervé Léger

NYFW S/S 2015: Herve Ledger

The question is, just how far we can go with the bandage dresses.. Kudos to the design team at Max Azria for their relentless attempts and success at creating seemingly endless collections of body-con dresses season after season, which this time around received a bit of “power” with inspiration coming all the way from Japan. It’s…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: KIOK

SFW S/S 2015: KIOK

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…
