Fashion brand UL:KIN presented the Fall Winter 2022.23 Collection as a part of Concept Korea program, during the recently finished New York Fashion Week. Designer Seongdong Lee introduced a collection centerd around groups of people and their interaction at parties and clubs. As every collection from the brand, this one is also made using upcycled vintage clothes.
People gather in clubs and parties as usual. The appearance of enjoying the party in different ways seems to have been reduced by removing the numerous groups we always face around us. Eventually, the party breaks down, leaving only the abandoned things in the place where the people left. The appearance of the club, where only the garbage and shells of what people eat, drink, enjoy, and consume is like the remains of human consumption. Last night’s crowded party and its ending are like a fast- forwarding ‘human interaction’. – from UL:KIN
