I went to Seoul Style Week, and I fell in love– with the style, naturally. How could I not? Not only has Seoul Fashion Week been growing for many years now, but also the designers who reveal are really unique, bringing something to the industry that’s new even for been-there-done-that editors. The style in Seoul is intense, enjoyable, and amazing, which was made all the more clear to me when I had the ability to see the brands personally and meet the designers. Plus, the street style there is to pass away for. Did I discuss yet how much I love it all? I never ever desired to come home.But considering that
I needed to come back to New york city, I have actually assembled my 10 preferred brands from Seoul Style week, not just so that I can relive my fashion memories, however likewise so you guys can see for yourself how unbelievable Seoul Fashion Week actually is. I’m looking for a roommate in Seoul, if anyone wants to join me.
D’Antidote: This gender-fluid line is based upon menswear, but effectively crosses over to womenswear. Like the name says, this brand is an antidote to fast style and luxury brands, providing the answer to the missing pieces in your closet. The very best pieces of the collection were influenced by British punk and from the freshly unveiled partnership with Fila that led to some amazing puffer pants, jackets, and scarfs in intense blues and yellows.
Cres. E Dim.: Introduced in 2009, this is the brand name that blew me away, with its combination of streetwear, essentials, and brand-new shapes. The shining star of the collection was the deconstructed jeans, including looks with layers of various washes, loose hems, and different kind of slits and cutouts.
Kye: This brand is fairly well-known in the U.S., particularly in New York, since they reveal at New York Fashion Week. I was naturally delighted to see them showing in their home base of Seoul.V-Files, Mild Beast andeven Shu Uemura have actually done partnerships with the brand name, and, this time, their collaboration was with Nike that led to synthetic fur-adorned Flying force 1s. Kye is also terrific at try out textures and prints, leading to some amazing mixes you ‘d never ever dream up for yourself, but that still make ideal aesthetic sense. M ÜNN: This menswear line is understood for its mix of basics and stand-out pieces, and their Fall/Winter 2017 collection had surprisingly thoughtful information. The jewelry and devices were really transgressive (believe: Hood by Air), and the properly designed jackets, pants, and layer pieces created an incredibly cohesive collection.
< a href= "http://www.supercommab.com"rel ="noopener noreferrer" target ="_ blank" > Supercomma B: This is a brand that knows to have enjoyable; it closed night one of Seoul Fashion Week with a program that was, basically, a party. The models danced down the runway, taking selfies, and doing Instagram Live video feeds; you simply knew the brand name was meant for a millennial. Understood primarily for their sneakers, the ready-to-wear was super on-point, too, and the method the line has fun with intense colors, streetwear merch basics, and excellent accessories makes it actually covetable for both males and females.
Beauty’s: This brand is understood all throughout Korea, thanks to a mix of top quality clothing and enjoyable, brand-new silhouettes. With a front row consisting of K-Pop royalty and even a big bear mascot, this was among my favorite programs to go to. Plus, their pill collection in cooperation with Kermit the Frog is incredible. Think of: lime green acid wash jeans, faux fur muppet-like coats, and all-over printed trousers. Miss Piggy is going to love it.
Antimatter: An underdog of Seoul Style Week, Antimatter blew me, and everyone else, away. With amazing workwear-inspired pieces, like vests, jumpsuits, and coats, this utilitarian collection was one to beat. In neutral tones of gray, black, and a little camouflage, the Heron Preston x DSNY vibes were genuine, and we weren’t mad at it.
< a href="http://the-sirius.com" rel="noopener noreferrer" target =" _ blank" > The-Sirius: The most avant-garde collection to come out of Seoul Fashion Week, Sirius was an emphasize of the shows I attended. Created by Younchan Chung, who simply recently won the distinguished International Fashion Display Designer from The British Style Council, this brand– and its designer– are rising stars, to say the least.
