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.

Eyes on Hyein Seo

Take a break from Vetements for a moment. This season you should have your eyes on Hyein Seo. Her design makes Rihanna fearless, and this week at Helsinki airport the Korean designer made the biggest statement with her avantgarde street wear on the runway with the Lady Vengeance fall/winter 2016 collection.

BAD EDUCATION

A graduate of Antwerp's prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts, South Korean designer Hyein Seo explores contemporary urban sportswear through a distinctly unisex prism. Irreverent, subtly ironic, and conceptually precise, Hyein Seo's work serves to foreground her imagined dystopia, a landscape informed by a lifetime of dusty arcades and prodigious amounts of anime.

A consistent theme throughout Seo's career has been the transition from adolescence to womanhood, and her AW 17 collection explores this idea by creating 20 different looks for Amrita, a character based on an amalgamation of the fantasy characters of Akira, Street Fighter, Tekken and Dragon Girls. Seo's representation of empowerment feels truly fresh and original, and the y2k era arcade-game inspired aesthetic seems perfectly suited for our tumultuous times.
