Designer: Kanghyuk

Location: Seoul, Korea

Season: Fall/Winter 2017

Key Pieces: Obviously, all of the outerwear is standout but the cropped iteration featuring lace-up sleeves is the strongest.

Editor’s Notes: This recent Royal College of Art graduate has been making waves since graduating last year (he’s already courted collaborations with LA-based concept store H.Lorenzo and London’s Machine-A), and now he has taken his conceptual outerwear to his hometown in Seoul. For his latest presentation, the designer reprises his visual signature and painstakingly uses different types of airbags as his material base to reimagine wardrobe staples. The results are seriously awe-inspiring.
