Since founding the label Komakino in 2005, husband and wife duo Fe + Jin have been off to a good start, having already collaborated with Levi’s Korea and putting on a few special presentations to show their collections from the last few seasons in cities such as London and Tokyo.
This winter’s presentation, however, shifted them into a new bracket.
Their work this season is less literal in terms of political overtones, and delves deeper into more complex construction and more durable and diverse materials. The range of pieces this season is great as well – lots of nice outerwear with distinct detailing, as well as some attractive footwear. I particularly enjoy the silhouette and their diligence when it comes to attention to proportion and form. It is an attribute that sets them apart from many of the other brands in the same aesthetic category.
