The Young Korean designer – after having graduated at Parsons School of Design in New York, he started his path as a designer, drawing the collection “D.GNAK by KANG.D”, with fashion shows during 08 F/W Seoul Fashion Week. He specializes in tailored men’s clothing with twisted details, avant-garde silhouette and achromatic color. His main goal is to re-create and capitalize on aspects of ‘Casual Life’ where he has a platform to exercise his twists and improvisations on this innovative line.
The brand name “D.GNAK by KANG.D” is a carefully crafted image, which applies an innovative mirroring technique, reflecting the brand consistently for the wearer and viewer. This approach ensures dependable and memorable experience, confirming and reinforcing the brand.
The brand targets are young men who have strong fashion sensibilities, who care how their life is expressed, displaying characteristics of quality and style, while retaining a youthful exuberance and pleasure in life.
22/4 is based upon the idea of redrawing the parameters that define and divide men’s and women’s fashion. The basic mathematical equation 2+2=4 in an industry where exacting measurements and technical proportions form the foundation indicates 22/4’s high quality demand the brand has.
The label’s discreetly luxurious gender-liberalized style is the principle and base of each collection and always based on reinterpreted traditional masculine tailoring techniques. It is a distillation of the classical men’s wear style that characterize 22/4’s identity.
Superior Italian fabrics meet pioneering construction imbued with a reverence for age-old skills drawn primarily from the world of men’s tailoring. The desire to create clothes and being driven by an attention for details with an eye for craft, quality and modern luxury are the engine of the creative director, Stephanie Hahn.
Upcoming fall InAisce Seeking Aether collection will be available at Vertice London.
The collection pulsates with vitality and refinement that simulate the longing for our immortal roots, yet carefully placed dissonant notes remind us of the displaced state of our species. This is manifested in individual elements of the collection: raw finishing and uneven panel lengths counter-balance the regal collar construction of a triple-ply wool coat; and the elegance of the complex seaming of a Tuscan shearling is contrasted by a sandblasted finish on the surface.
Similarly, the fabrications befit nobility and vagabond alike. Luxurious silks, wools, and cupros are juxtaposed with large felted wraps that evoke the hide of a wild highlands beast, and a plush nylon-coated knit, while soft within, resembles a worn industrial garbage bag on the surface.
Below we have some examples of our new range of Kofta bags. Notice the visually striking facial outlines moulded into the high quality leather.
Konstantin Kofta’s label, ‘Kofta’ combines seemingly contradictory elements outside the traditional canons of the fashion industry. His garments are both elegant and practical. Kofta uses rough skin and irregular shapes to create totally unique attire. Kofta embraces the unintentional and unexpected, each collection is treated as an art installation.
