Kuho made it's NYFW debut with a presentation of their Spring 2017 collection at the Supermarket in Tribeca. This contemporary womenswear label under the umbrella of the Samsung C&T Fashion Group is already well established in it's home of South Korea with over 60 retail stores and an impressive $90 million business.
The tightly edited spring showing was encapsulated into 10 looks with a clean, modern aesthetic. Head designer Hyun Jung Kim drew inspiration from the circus with the theme subtly conveyed through the striped separates, a flouncy cropped cape and fluid silhouettes throughout. This collection is balanced and wearable with an effortlessly cool vibe.
The Kuho product range includes clothing, shoes and accessories. Manufactured in Korea, the brand makes full use of it's own fabric mills to develop unique custom fabrics. Samsung though now largely known as a consumer electronics giant, actually started out as a textile company in 1954. That's a pretty interesting fact. I enjoyed the presentation and my favorite looks were the black and white optical dot printed slouchy coat and midi skirt and black jumpsuit and trench coat outfits which are totally my style.
