If there’s one word that can describe Seoul’s fashion scene, it would have to be #EXTRA. Koreans, after all, are notorious for their impeccably-accessorized getups (literally head-to-toe fleekery) and penchant for avant-minded labels, making the city’s Fashion Week the reigning gold medalist in the street style peacocking Olympics (this is the country that produced Keith Ape, CL and countless other swaggy K-pop stars after all).
Our first batch of snaps from Seoul’s SS17 Fashion Week shows just how much of a dazzling sartorial spectacle the city really is. Featuring nearly every “It” brand around (Vetements, OFF-WHITE, Supreme, Raf Simons, YEEZY and the like), the Land of the Morning Calm’s denizens seemed to have paid particular homage to goth and punk looks this season (wonder if homegirl in slide #16 really listens to Joy Division, though).
Want to know where these guys copped all their Vetements threads from? My guess is that it was at the brand’s recent Seoul-based “Garage Sale.”
