USA vs. Korea: Kye

To give you an idea of Kathleen Kye's vibe: for her final collection at Central Saint Martins she made a sweater enveloped in an inflatable gorilla hand—inspired by a dream she had about King Kong. And the year before that she sent a bomber jacket with blow-up muscles down the runway. Now that Kathleen's graduated (alongside Shaun Samson and Marques'Almeida—go class of 2011!), she's making ready-to-wear that spans the gap between what we dream about wearing and what we actually wear. While there aren't any inflatable body parts in her Fall/Winter 2012 collection, you can see her love for 3-D shapes in down jackets laced with chain and her talent for re-energizing streetwear shapes in gold-fringed muscle pants and caps with curtain brims.
