Top Seoul Fashion Week F/W 2015 Collections


Seoul Fashion Week is one of the most coveted events among fashion photographers. From the runway to the streets, the fashion in Korea doesn’t cease to impress and generate a buzz all over the world. Modern silhouettes, perfect tailored pieces, and avant-garde and obscure collections took charge of the runways of Seoul. And since keeping up with all of the F/W 2015 can be a bit much, we did the work for you. Take a look at our picks for the best collections at Seoul Fashion Week this season.

Jehee Sheen

Jehee Sheen presented a collection full of elegance, perfect for the modern man. The color palette was somber but very neutral, with black, grey, and burgundy being shown in different shades. The combination of smarts pieces like jumpers and trousers mixed with coats and leather jackets created crisp combinations that gave off a fresh look. His use of different textures gave a modern twist to the classic suit for men.

JKOO’s work with prints and texture is admirable. The use of neoprene and techno fabrics gave off an edgy look to his fall/winter collection. The collection is full of interesting details, like raw edges and faux fur appliques. The silhouettes are modern and play with different proportions that create an interesting look. The prints of the collection tie in perfectly with the fur appliques that create various abstract figures.

Androgyny plays an important part in Byungmun Seo’s collections. His menswear and womenswear almost become unisex and a synonym of avant-garde. Unlike Jehee Sheen who took the classic suit pieces and added modernity with its textures and fabrics, Byungmun Seo played with silhouettes and proportions to create new and edgy suit pieces for men. Dropped crotch pants, wide leg trousers, and hybrids of leather jackets with classic blazers are seen throughout the collection. At first glance, it seems like each look has different layers of clothing, but if you look closely, everything is one piece. The dark palette of the collections makes it timeless and a must for fans of brands Rick Owens, KTZ, and Hood By Air.

His impeccably tailored collection made us fashion lovers fall in love with his fall/winter collection, and gave everyone in Korea a nostalgic feel by incorporating the popular Korean cartoon character, Dooly, to the collection. He took a very modern route by mixing the cartoon characters with perfect tailored pieces that were clearly inspired by military elements. Unlike other previous designers that have added famous cartoons into their collections, Kaal E. Suktae’s use of the characters seems like a perfect addition. The inclusion of Dooly doesn’t look childish or foolish, it seems very modern and chic. It feels, in a way, that it was almost meant to be.

Moreover, neoprene is here to stay, and being a very malleable fabric, it adds great texture to a collection, screaming modernity. The mix of industrial zippers, PVC, leather, and oversized buttons gives an amazing edge to every look. The color palette was kept simple, with a few colors added to make a statement in head-to-toe monochromatic looks or pops of color with color blocking. That yellow fur bomber jacket is to die for. Every look has amazing details and the collection itself is very cohesive.

Fashion Spotlight: pushBUTTON

Korean fashion has been in the spotlight around the world for it’s amazing eye for style and innovation. Fashionistas around the world find inspiration from Korea’s street style, Korean magazines, and artists. In this series, we will introduce you to people working in Korea’s fashion industry.

Park Seung Gun is very quiet, quirky, and artistic. There aren’t many photos of hims because of his shy persona. His brand became his alter-ego where he could fully express himself. Korean fashion house pushButton came to exist in 2003, and in 2008 he expanded its brand to Europe and created an affordable sister brand called DRESSMONSTER. It wasn’t until 2010 that the brand was named one of the leaders in Korea’s fashion industry.

Park Seung Gun distinguished himself from other Korean designers by not only creating amazing garments, but also art pieces. His creative mind and artistic sensibility has led to amazing conceptual collections that are loved by netizens and Korean artists like Beenzino, Taemin, f(x), and CNBLUE.

pushBUTTON’s creations come from the designer’s fun and distorted creative mind. His keen eye for mixing colors, prints, and textiles sets him apart from the rest. He elaborates sophisticated pieces that have fun style lines, silhouettes, and experimental designs. He sometimes even creates social commentaries through his collections. Such was the case of his spring/summer 2012 collection that talked about how people see fame and where it can lead to, while still being in love with fame and desiring it. He used Amy Winehouse as his example, creating T-shirts that read “We Miss Amy”.

He delved into another topic that is very common in society, mistaking someone’s sexuality because of the way someone dresses. He played with female and male aesthetics to create a very androgynous collection. There was even a T-shirt with a message that read “I’m Not Gay.” This collection became a favorite in the K-pop world; even if the collection was simple, it made a bold statement. Some of the pieces appeared on EXO’s photoshoot for their single Mama. Moreover, some of the plaid outfits from his 2013 fall/winter collection were used on f(x)’s Rum Pum Pum Pum music video and promotions.

His latest collection for spring/summer 2015 was inspired by mexican artist and icon Frida Kahlo. Frida always loved to have fun with the way she dressed and played with the idea of mixing womenswear with menswear, and that’s exactly what Park Seung Gun did. This collection was seen also on tv on Korea’s Next Top Model Cycle 5: Boys and Girls, where the contestants had the opportunity to walk the runway for pushBUTTON alongside supermodel Park Soo Joo.

Fan Fashion: KCON 2014

KCON 2014 was successfully held on August 9th and 10th in Los Angeles, California. The LA Memorial Sports Arena saw over 40,000 K-Pop and Hallyu fans who did not cease to amaze with their incredible fashion. Through both days of the convention KPOPme’s staff was on the lookout to showcase the best KCON 2014 fan fashion.

    When I first spotted this boy, his Timberland booties caught my attention. As I took a closer look at his outfit I started noticing really cool pieces, I really wanted his Pyrex shorts, they were so cool! His look was totally reminiscent of the fashion on BEAST’s Good Luck music video.

    I’m a sucker for all-white outfits, and when I spotted this fashionista I was so happy to see how well balanced her outfit was. I really love how the white lace sleeves give a really cool texture to the outfit and complements the umbrella very well. It’s a really cool Lolita-inspired look that exudes great confidence and a great sense of style.

    When it comes to mixing patterns, you have to have a special touch. It’s not an easy thing to do but this guy did it in a very subtle and fun way. His black and white vertical stripes elongate his stature and mix very well with the stripes on his sweater. He wrapped a blue and white striped shirt on his waist and, to complete the nod to the ’90s, he wore his snapback backwards.

    As mentioned before, I love all-white outfits. Season 10 American Idol alumni, Arnelle “Elly” Nonon, took the trend in a futuristic way. Her holographic visor really accented her look and was the best piece in her outfit. Her neoprene white skirt was to die for, and was paired very well with the halter cropped top.

    The ‘90s Club Kids have always been an inspiration to fashionistas around the world. They created really unique outfits with many elements that could be easily applied to ready-to-wear pieces. Platforms and really cool, unique accessories are a must. I really appreciate when someone pays really close attention to what they are wearing and what they want to express with their clothes.

    This fan’s pink Buffalo platforms looked amazing with his predominant pink color palette (even his dreadlocks are pink!) His hologram cap, which I really want to get a hold of, really accentuated his outfit. His zombie shirt made me think that he would fit right in next to 2NE1 in their Gotta Be You video.

    This trio really caught my attention. Their styling was very fashion forward and was executed extremely well. Not only were their clothes amazing, but look at their hairstyles! I instantly fell in love with the leather jersey that the boy in the middle was wearing, and the girl’s cut-out skater dress was also to die for. The guy on the left even made me think that I was standing in front of G-Dragon himself.

    I am currently in love with the designer brand Hood By Air, so naturally when I spotted this fan wearing one of the brand’s shirts, I had to take a picture of him. Not only was he wearing a HBA shirt, but he also sported Boy London pants. Since the graphics were already overwhelming, the fashionable guy paired the outfit very well with a simple necklace and bracelet. I really want his tennis shoes, they are amazing!

    fan fashion 8


    When I spotted this cutie I was really surprised to see a very polished and feminine look. Her pearl shirt with the royal blue pattern matched perfectly with her midi royal blue lace skirt. Her nude flats with a gold tip where so cool and modern. And to top it off, her floppy hat not only kept the sun away from her face, but also made her look incredibly chic.

    fan fashion 9


    Fashion can be really fun, specially when you do a DIY ( Do It Yourself). This girl made a really cool print on her black crop top. She made an all-over print of her BTS bias, Jimin.  She paired the shirt with high waisted shorts and a really cool pair of statement shoes.

    fan fashion 10

    Last but not least, I would love to showcase some of the amazing cosplays that I found at KCON 2014.
