Seoul Fashion Week is going down right now! If you’re never been to the South Korean city, I implore you to visit as soon as you can. The style there is unreal and if you have a penchant for denim, you might just go broke and leave all your coins there. That’s why it is no surprise that brand Kiok is one of the biggest—known for its conversation-starting iterations on the classic texture:
Mother-daughter trio Kiok Kang, Coco.J Lee, and Crayon Lee started the brand over a decade ago in 2004. Their Spring assortment juxtaposed denim with plaid, stripe crop tops, and ruffle-accented bomber jackets—anchoring most of the looks with slide sandals or floral-patterned booties for that vernal touch.
Supremely feminine ensembles were pulsed into the collection by way of bow detailing, transparent skirts, rosette embellishment, Spring-perfect florals, and flounce necklines.
My favorite pieces among the wares were the tops: fun takes on girly classics like A-line designs and off-the-shoulder denim numbers with peplum bottoms and bustier-inspired styling. The items were functional, but completely statement-making—the kinds of articles you absolutely want in your wardrobe.
Denim aficionados including Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Tracee Ellis Ross would look fabulous in these looks. Longline denim jackets would be effortless on the bad gal, while ruffle-detailed button front tops would work with Bey’s proclivity for Gucci accessories.
