Countries like South Korea, Japan, France and the United States have their own distinct style monickers that make them stand out from one another. If we had to narrow down Korean style, we’d pinpoint it as expressive, experimental and ruled by eye-catching accessories. Brands like MISCHIEF and ADER error have the streetwear game on lock thanks to their cult fans who’ve driven both lines to the forefront of Korean fashion.

With Seoul Fashion Week taking place this week, we’re highlighting five Korean streetwear labels that are worthing keeping on your radar. These picks are made up of popular selections from style darling KYE to the buzzy label Mahagrid. Below, take a look at five editor-approved Korean brands you just might see during the next Fashion Month on your favorite industry insiders.

Known for its dramatic flare and exaggerated designs, PUSHBUTTON first came on the scene back in 2003. Created by Seung Gun Park, the collections play on youthful themes in exciting colors such as pine green and lilac. What’s impressive about the line is the quirky prints created in refreshing silhouettes. The current line which is available at global stockist Net-A-Porter features plaid suiting, pastel separates and an array of bottoms which are tailored extremely well. PUSHBUTTON is for you if you’re into unisex lines that consciously create fresh motifs with a clear design direction.

Mahagrid


Mahagrid is known for its punchy color palettes and vintage-inspired graphics. The cohesive collections are usually rolled out with outerwear such as jackets, sweaters, tees and accessories. For its Spring/Summer 2019 women’s range, the designs are kept quite minimal and feature bright hues which arrive in the form of hats, plaid shirts and oversized T-shirts. As a whole Mahagrid is equipped with an eccentric flair that makes it stand out amongst other streetwear lines in Korea. This brand is ideal for those who are really into bold graphics, plaid separates and designs that are inspired by the ’90s.
