Bare Legs

Decided to show some skin this weekend since the streets of Seoul seem already filled with skirts and thighs. Result? A bit chilly still. But very happy for the very much welcoming sunshine days. 

29CM Stylebook SS14


29CM is a new online shopping site I just discovered recently, which offers a variety of Korean brands with cool and offbeat vibes. Now, their prices range is not exactly wallet-friendly, but given the quality and  unique resembles you do not normally find on the streets of Seoul, I'd give it a go.

Their SS14 lookbook embraces the peculiar street-chic ambiance with quirky dresses, sorbet pastels and fun shoes. Take a look and shop away! 


After a winter of minimalistic cut and modern patterns, the S/S14 catwalk brings us the boldest, most colorful prints on swirling dresses and flowing long shirts. Major houses had their own interpretations of the art pop revival: Chanel with their Patone-streaked dresses, Prada brought street mural images on the walk and Celine stood out by vivid abstract strokes. The trend then took the editorials of the season with a storm of painted prints and bold brushstrokes that are nothing shy of an all out eye-feast. Even Zara had their version of the art pop trend, so the question is truly: Are you bold enough for the art?


I finally found it, I found my Holy Grail of boyfriend jeans! I have searched high and low, but persistence rewards. This pair have the perfect wash, the perfect rips, and the perfect length. An absolute wardrobe staple! 

Low Classic F/W14

Seoul Fashion Week, which is scheduled one month later than the usual fashion storm of NY-London-Paris-Milan, just ended last week. The Korean fashion industry still has a long way to go, but I really really enjoyed the recent seasons of Low Classic, a Korean brand renowned for minimalistic feel, modern silhouettes and clean lines. The F/W14 collection was no exception: all the looks had a distinctive masculine ambiance with monotone pantsuits and BW skate shoes. A very exciting to watch out for!
