There’s no stopping the Korean wave that has hit this side of the globe (and has been for a while now). From beauty and fashion trends to pop culture, the Hallyu fad isn’t fading anytime soon in our books. As far as avid Korean fans are concerned, it’s almost a lifelong thing to be immerse in the beauty that is everything Korean-inspired and founded.
Cue this blog post for today: While K-drama fashion trends have been known to literally blaze the shopping scene (remember Jun Ji Hyeon’s ultra fashionable character from My Love From Another Star?), why not go for fashion brands that are endorsed by these famous face in real life?
From Bean Pole (personally vouched for by G-Dragon and Tiffany from SNSD) to Spao (EXO), here are a handful of Korean fashion brands you need to ShopandBox from to get your #OOTD game going:
Brought to you by the designers of the 2012 South Korean national team, Bean Pole’s aesthetic is rather similar to Ralph Lauren of the USA, or even Burberry from UK. Find silhouettes that are clean, unfussy and utilitarian – take your pick from a languid grey trench coats to tweed cardigan & skirt ensembles for men and women respectively. Bean Pole’s outlet is currently offering 60% off some of its styles, check it out here.
So you’re a girly girl who’s a major fan of SNSD and pretty much everything that’s chic, fashion forward and wearable without causing a scene. Mixxo is one for you to ShopandBox easily, as you can find everything from basics (denim jackets and cardigans) to dressier options such as fit-and-flare dresses and ruffle sleeve blouses. And let’s be real, anything that Tiffany from SNSD reps and looks utterly chic in is pretty much a “yes” in our fashion books.
Representing the faces of apparel label Spao is EXO and AOA – fellow boy and girl bands from South Korea. One reason to get hooked on this brand apart from the very good-looking models and how they absolutely sell the goods, is that everything is practical enough to have in your closet without eschewing the aesthetics. Camo-print windbreakers are a legit addition to ShopandBox for the cooler season, and so are denim shirt dresses and overalls. Our favourite has got to be the Spao x Snoopy hoodies in four different shades!
Put edgy and grunge together in a form of denim and you’d get a pair of Buckaroo jeans. With plenty of choices whether acid wash low-slung or distressed boyfriend jeans, dressing up to channel your inner rockstar is easy peasy with Buckaroo. Past faces who have been fronting ad campaigns of this label include actor Kim Woo Bin, actress Shin Se Kyung and boyband B2ST member Doojoon – talk about a fashion force in the making.
For those a little left field who are into hip-hop, Vetements/Hood By Air, and T.O.P from Big Bang, check out Sakun for that similar underground youth culture aesthetic. What’s in the shopping wishlist of someone who’s into Sakun? Denim and/or pleather studded face masks, graffiti motif hoodies and neon backpacks. After all, fashion isn’t always fun when it’s conventional and somewhat predictable.
