KANGHYUK is the young, buzzy brand that’s taken its latest collection to Paris, Seoul and now Los Angeles. The young Korean designer graduated from the Royal College of Art’s highly lauded MA course in 2016 and has already courted a collaboration with MACHINE-A, Nick Knight’s SHOWStudio and legendary LA concept store H.Lorenzo for a special capsule collection.
KANGHYUK’s latest wares are set to drop later this month, and we’ll be teaming up with H. LORENZO, MACHINE-A / SHOWStudio and D /ARK /CONCEPT to launch a multi-platform event to commemorate KANGHYUK’s inaugural drop.
KANGHYUK’s conceptual wares are all crafted from airbags, manually disassembled and then painstakingly re-engineered into contemporary garments. It’s an intensely laborious process that’s evolved into a unique aesthetic code for the rising designer.
Now, some of the KANGHYUK’s extraordinary pieces will be finally available for buy. On April 20, SHOWStudio will be dropping a select few pieces online, followed by an in-store window takeover at London’s MACHINE-A, and a specially commissioned installation and launch party on in Los Angeles at H. LORENZO gallery on Sunset Plaza, West Hollywood, and you’re invited. See details below.
When: Thursday, April 20 | 19.00 – 22.00
Where: H.LORENZO, 8660 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069, USA
