For Seoul-London based designer Juntae Kim, it’s a clear distinction between contemporary garments rooted in functionality and sustainability, and ostensibly obsessed historical garments such as corsets, doublets and jerkins. Incompatible things are a constant source of attraction.

Adding his happy place – “on a Greek island, where you can wear silky, blousing things and be a little more rowdy and glamorous” – his brand was born.
