KYE | NYFW | Spring Summer 2016
The KYE runway show at NYFW was kinetic, fun and pop. The collection of this Seoul based label by Kathleen Kye drew heavy visual inspiration from the electric K-Pop scene. K-Pop is short for Korean pop and is a musical genre that originated in South Korea that has very characteristic audio-visual elements. Built on that, KYE had a lot of street silhouettes with bright candy colors that were punctuated with basic blacks and hints of metal accents. Definitely new-age and young. My personal favorites were the ‘HATE’ emblems on some of the pieces, the metallic maxi dress with a huge heart-shaped cut out at the back, the army jacket and the statement sunglasses that the models were wearing. A lot of energy and crisp direction in the collection as well as the show! LOVE!
