Juun J Spring/Summer 2010By Editor in Fashion on November 4th, 2009 | 4 Comments »
Check out the runway pics from Korean menswear designer Juun J. His style is classic and the pieces are very tailored, with a hints of street and bohemian style mixed in.
Graduated from Esmod Seoul in 1992, Juun J began his career as a designer for Chiffons followed by design director for Club Monaco and NIX. In 1999, he launched his brand Lone Costume and has shown it during the Seoul Fashion Week ever since.
He has collaborated several times with the Japanese artist Nuts and the English artist Simon Henwood and most recently designed a pair of slick, black sneakers for Reebok. In July 2007, he showed his collection during the Official Schedule of the Paris Men’s Fashion Week for the first time.
Juun J likes to create new silhouettes and garments from an overlapping of items and silhouette to silhouette all of which dramatically conflict with each other. Shirts and cardigans, knit sleeved jackets and knitwear are overlapping each other and newly born as different items. His basic design concept is Classic & Tailoring; and, like many designers of his generation, he likes to mix and transform classic items with street fashion, which can be seen in his Spring/Summer 2010 collection.
