Korean Fashion Finds: I AM NOT A HUMAN BEING F/W 2017 Collection

Urban fashion and music almost go hand in hand these days. We don’t just listen to the music of our favorite idols and musicians. We also look at what they wear and how they wear it to understand what they are trying to express.

For some time, urban streetwear in Korea has been dominated by the likes of overseas brands such as Stussy and Supreme. High-end brands such as Rick Owens, Raf Simons, Fear of God, and Balenciaga have also been brands that Koreans wore with pride and confidence on the streets. Even though it is mainly still the case and the same applies to other countries as well, for the most part, it was always a desirable scenario for any nation to have their own brand that they could look up to as one that could at least be on the same page as the mentioned brands. This is the reason why we have to give respect and credit to South Korean street fashion label ‘I AM NOT A HUMAN BEING’. Sure it may have a slight ‘Fuccboi’ aesthetic to it at first glance but what streetwear brand doesn’t these days? There’s no harm in it as long as it’s just done properly.

Even though it can’t be defined as high-end streetwear, it isn’t the opposite either. The pieces are able to be mixed and matched easily with high-end designer clothing and shoes, without looking like one piece of clothing is out of place. It has even collaborated with Playboy as well.

This year’s F /W collection maintains their original vibe but mainly utilizing designs other than plaid. Plaid has been the dominant pattern design for previous collections but for this year, the pieces seem more symmetrical and simpler.

Korean Fashion Finds: We’re Seeing NERDY’s Track Jackets Everywhere!

Are we the only ones seeing double in K-Pop lately?

There’s no doubt that idols tend to recycle the same items and looks, but this summer, we’ve definitely seen more than just one of our K-Pop favorites rocking the same exact item – a vintage Adidas-inspired track jacket with stripes along the sleeves. We decided to do a little investigating to find out exactly where they’re all getting this item from – and it was a lot easier than we thought it’d be!

The trendy item is the NERDY NY Track Jacket, a part of Korean independent brand NERDY’s S/S 2017 line, which is inspired by the street fashion of old school New York City.

The track jacket is made out of 100% moisture-wicking polyester and can be worn as a separate or paired with matching NY track pants sweatpants, as seen on our K-Pop boyfriend Roy Kim. Doesn’t he look comfortable?

Korean hip-hop trendsetter Zico also rocked the purple and gold jacket in his “Artist” music video last month.

However, the NERDY NY Track Jacket also comes in a black/green scheme, which has been almost as equally a hit as the original. Both WINNER’s Kang SeungYoon and Dok2 were both recently seen on Instagram rocking the jacket – both with the matching sweatpants and separately.

Our favorite part about this throwback look is that it looks just as effortlessly cool on our K-Pop ladies! Sandara Park and Sulli also have been spotted rocking the original purple and gold NY Track Jacket on social media.

IU was also seen wearing the purple and gold style on a recent episode of “Hyori’s Bed And Breakfast,” the oversized cut of the hoodie giving it a cute and somewhat unintentional ‘boyfriend’ look.

Korean Fashion Finds: Carhartt WIP Korea F/W Season

Carhartt WIP is pretty much in many ways a brand that represents a large portion of South Korean street fashion. It is worn like uniforms by the mass and because it is loved by Koreans so much, it can be confusing at times to remember that its roots actually stem back to American traditional workwear.

This year’s fall collection channels Soviet youth visuals that utilize nylon, corduroy, and lambswool. The color palette mainly consists of neutral tone and shades of black, white,  beige, maroon, and navy.

Hooded wool cardigans and aviator jackets in shades of beige and light brown bring a nice warm tone to the cool season. The jackets above are not yet available online but most likely will be soon when the fall season hits further.

Knits are a must during the fall season. They are perfect for chilly mornings as you take a sip of your coffee. Layering them with a shirt underneath is also a classic look that never goes out of style.
