Our Under the Radar series is made in collaboration with SSENSE. Each month, we shine the light on a new, burgeoning talent that you can shop at the retailer. Encompassing all sides of the contemporary style spectrum, this series acts as a measure of where luxury fashion is headed in the coming years.

We're excited to kick off our new Under the Radar series with the help of SSENSE, and how better to do so than with KUSIKOHC? Born in South Korea, the brand is the brainchild of polymath creative force Cho Gi-Seok. Gi-Seok's work extends from photography, sculpting, and drawing to creative direction and product design.

The label is rooted in values of community, identity, and reinvention, with one overarching message: “Right to Fail.” In his own words, “I believe that challenge and endeavour themselves have the power to change at least small parts of something, even if they get failed. Therefore, we have the Right to Fail.”

Overseeing everything from clothing and art direction to the photography of its lookbooks, KUSIKOHC is a true embodiment of Cho Gi-Seok's vision. Plus, already counting collaborations with Prada and Converse among its achievements, it's clear that Gi-Seok's vision is being understood and platformed.
