Husband and wife duo, Komakino, launched their 4th collection during the last London Fashion Week. The pair, consisting of South Korean born Jin Kim and Italian Federico Capalbo, met in Florence and moved to London in 2005. Kim has worked for Topman design, Michiko Koshino London and McQ Alexander Mc Queen, while Capalbo is currently studying Menswear design at Central St Martins.

Fe and Jin, as their friends know them, have been working on the label since their move to the capital and although initially a street-wear label, they have evolved well into their signature style ofDuo fusing military influences with tailoring.

Their AW09 offering was based on fascist buildings and a sense of disillusion, aiming to present an apocalyptic vision. “Interaction within a social atmosphere plays a big role in the design process. Komakino is based on reality, taking current cultural aspects, implementing them then giving them a twist”, Fe says. The collection saw a dark palette of deconstructed jackets and trousers with unfinished details, elasticated bands covering t-shirts and jeans, juxtaposed with tailored finishes on box shaped coats and sheer hooded tops.

The design duo, previously showing at London Fashion Week in September 2007, have also produced a range of exclusive Komakino t-shirts and prints for Levi’s Korea, and have presented at Tokyo Fashion Week.

COINONIA is a label by Momoko Hashigami and Kiho Kim. They established COINONIA in 2010, Milan and launched their first 2010-2011F/W collection in Paris.

Momoko Hashigami majored in international studies at Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo, then studied fashion design and techniques at Tokyo Bunka Fashion College. She graduated from the women’s fashion department of Central St Martin’s, London. While studying she gained work experience at John Galliano and other fashion houses in Paris. She participated in several international competitions including ITS4. After graduating she worked at Antonio Marras in Italy.

Kiho Kim majored in clothing and textile department at Hangseung University in Seoul. After graduating he worked at Parkyounsoo studio in Seoul. Then he studied pattern making at Carlo Secoli in Milan and fashion design at Polimoda in Florence. During his study he participated in several international competitions including ITS3. After finishing his studies he worked at Antonio Marras in Italy.

COINONIA’s universal theme is creating ‘Conceptual Contemporary’ garment and accessory for creative women. The collection pieces are first created on the mannequins to be given a life and a story by hand under a seasonal concept. Experimental and architectural shape, dynamic cutting, and sensitive details and colors are then introduced to define their characters. Narrative and conceptual mood is always there as the essence of their works. Feminine but masculine, still but dynamic, tender but hard… These contradictions are the source of their creation to be mixed up and give a birth to new designs.
