Backstage at KYE from Seoul Fashion Week 2016

Featuring plenty of emoji-inspired accessories.

South Korea has in recent years largely become regarded as the epicenter of fashion in Asia, and this certainly showed at the most recent Seoul Fashion Week. From a seamless combination of high and low-brow aesthetics, to edgier looks inspired by goth-punk, the looks seen at Dongdaemun Plaza were outfit-inspiring to say the least. As part of our coverage of the events, we went backstage at the 2017 spring/summer show of Korean label KYE.

Among the pieces, we see plenty of emoji motifs throughout the accessories, including handbag straps and a particularly blinged out pair of earrings featuring the “Heart Eyes” emoji. We also see corset lacing along the sleeves of an eye-catching teal sweater, similar to the detailing seen in Rihanna’s latest Fenty x PUMA collection. To see more exclusive behind-the-scenes images from backstage at KYE, check out the gallery above.
