This season Kathleen Key, our favorite Korean designer, focuses on unconventional silhouettes, mixture of bold contrasting color blocking and mix matched styling. The collection is heavily influenced by variety of retro, unisex streetwear from different periods. She proves again that gender doesn’t matter for her brand any more.
I feel that the zombies are metaphor of a people nowadays who are lacking human fundamentals and only filled with desire and instincts. As I lately find myself living hectic life with void and lost in intensions, I fear to find myself to turn out as one of the zombies. This collection is a statement that KYE is going back to basics, with improvements and my pledge of dedication.- says Kathleen Kye
