Korean designer Hyein Seo aka spawner of a multitude of trends (sew-on patches, graphics on fur, fur stoles, heck, even her “School Kills” tagline was picked up by Rihanna for the rumored fashion label that never was) has revealed her collection for autumn 2016. Titled “Lady Vengeance,” it stays true to her haute take on street, with offerings rooted in retro-sport silhouettes, often embellished with her signature patches and graphic details.
The one issue that hampers Seo is that she takes a quiet, almost shy approach to publicizing her collections, so much so that other, splashier brands whose designs in many cases were inspired by hers, have grabbed up more notoriety for similar looks. That said, it could be that Seo chooses this approach on purpose. There is something to be said, after all, for a slow but steady approach, which can sometimes translate to greater longevity.
