Rainy days in New York calls for indoor photo shoots! I've been sharing a lot of street style photos lately and as much as I know how much you guys enjoy those posts, I've also been wanting to raise the bar while continuing my journey in style & fashion and to push boundaries while keeping the editorial content high-end, edgy and fun. And since I've been heavily into Korean fashion (or K Fashion) lately, I was inspired to mix up a play on "manhwa" is the general Korean term for comics and print cartoons and high-fashion sportswear. Think Sailor Moon kicking ass in soccer or perhaps, a friendlier Gogo from Kill Bill minus the overkill schoolgirl look.
One of my favorite new designers is Sungmin Shim for echtego. echtego is the women's luxury sportswear between high and street fashion. Contemporary designs consist of unique and exquisite print, with the juxtaposition of contrast aesthetics and high quality. Characterized by classic cuts combined with an experimental approach to an electric mix of materials, I was immediately drawn to the super hip style designs. How gorgeous is this Riccardo Dress from the SS17 collection?! You can find this dress at www.echtego.com or at the Dreams On Air boutique here in New York City. I love the ruffle details both on the collar and dress itself. The navy blue color is so trendy right now (and after seeing the last Dior show I've become rather obsessed with the hue) that I even accessorized it with a navy blue Gucci belt and old-school over the knee Adidas socks. To also maintain a sporty and playful look, I wore my Adidas high-tops and put my hair in pigtails! What do you guys think of this shoot? Shop the look down below! :)
