South Korean streetwear brand Kirin is going back to their national roots for fall 2020. Their latest collection offers up a cool and comfy array of pajama dressing and thick coats, rendered in crazy colors and artistic Korean motifs. However, even with the traditional touch, the pieces never lost their edgy modern appeal!
DJ-turned-Designer Peggy Gou’s Haute Homeland
Who knew that world-renowned DJ Peggy Gou would one day be one of streetwear’s most sought-after designers? The EDM heavyweight showed introduced her design skills back in 2019 when she opened Kirin, a luxury streetwear brand, during Paris Fahsion Week. The label remains a constant fusion of contemporary style sensibilities with hints of nostalgic tradition and fearless attitudes.
Pretty in Pajamas
Kirin’s fall 2020 covers both ends of the style spectrum when it comes to fall dressing. The first is the soft silky selection of pajama-style pieces. Making use of the habotai silk from the country, Gou was able to craft beautiful suits, separates, and the like, all decorated with the colorful dancheong design for that traditional touch.
The Bulkier the Better
Meanwhile, the line also offers thick, warm outerwear. Think thick mohair coats in cooky combos in green, yellow, and pink. Oversized trenches made out of fusions of both wool and knit. Silky bombers bombarded with dancheong for that past-meets-present appeal. And a little bit of logomania didn’t hurt as well!
Kirin’s Fall 2020 collection has been available online for quite some time now. You can see it and buy some of the pieces from the online retailer HBX. Comment down below what you think of their latest offering!
