lie sang bong ss12
My journalist friend Michael Reyes just forwarded me this video that he worked on for crane.tv about Korean designer Lie Sang Bong's SS12 collection. The collection was inspired by the bright colors and intricate patterns associated with Korean buddhist temples also known as 'jul / 줄'.
"Hailed as the "Korean McQueen," Seoul-based fashion designer Lie Sang Bong has dressed everyone from South Korea's First Ladies to international stars like Beyoncé and Lindsay Lohan. Crane.tv visits him in his studio in Gangnam-Gu where the former costume and set designer tells us about his childhood dreams and wanting to communicate Korean cultural identity to the world."
Here are a few of my favorite looks from his latest collection including those very cool melty face masks.
