Byungmun Seo Styles For The Id And The Ego
Seoul born maverick menswear designer Byungmun Seo fabricates ‘Psyche Couture’ for the youthful consumer. Byungmun Seo (a WGSN Global 2012 finalist for “Emerging Designer of the Year “), is a master with scissors. His flamboyant pattern-cutting skills has made his style I.D. the crowned head of non-traditional couture fashion for men.
A graduate of London’s College of Fashion, Byungmun Seo broke into the industry by taking a philosophical approach to the pressures of a man’s appearance in modern society. By using juxtaposed layers that create wearable complex shapes, Byungmun Seo mirrors what he believes is the divided reality between man’s inner and outer worlds.
In essence, Byungmun Seo has forged a fresh silhouette. Using fabrics such as spandex, elastine and nylon, his monochromatic look (mostly shades of black), utilizes inverted lapels, perforated jackets, assymetrical-amorphic lines, and drop crotch trousers, to create a look that is handsomely captivating.
