South Korea is fast becoming a hot spot for art and culture on a global level. During Seoul Fashion Week 2016, up and coming designer brand, Andronike showed her creative outlet together with veteran men’s designer brand Caruso, resulting in a surprising collaboration.
Caruso is operating since 1987, well known under an array of celebrity followers as an innovative brand, mixing men’s wardrobe with elements of old and new creating a twist to the traditional men’s clothing. Andronike is a New York based and as an up and coming emerging designer brand we start to make a name with our well sculptured jewelry created for every woman and man that would love to express their personality with their style.
Both designers; Chang Kwanghyo from Caruso and Hanna J Grey from Andronike are drawing their inspiration from art and architecture, mixing impressions from the old and the new to create their signature style together they discovered their love and admiration for the architecture of Gaudi, and in particular the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain which resulted in quirky headpieces in Gaudi inspired shapes; the vibrant colors, to crown Caruso’s spring/ summer collection for 2016.
This collaboration blew the audience, consisting of fashionistas from all over the world, away and was well received by press and bloggers who posted the images on their own websites right instantly. Thank you Caruso for this unique collaboration: www.mrporter.com/Caruso -RACHEL DARCY
