Award-winning South Korean designer Juun J was invited to participate as a foreign guest among the Catalan designers. Having already shown during Paris menswear last month, we knew we were in for a treat. These were seriously dapper looks for the re-birth of the original gentleman, futuristic Mad Men you could say. Classic menswear head to toe had been confused and duplicated on top of itself like two fornicating insects – sleeves on sleeves and shoulders on shoulders. Another twist to a classic came via Juun’s partnering with Chinese shoe designer Kim Kiroic who added thick hexagonal soles to the leather boots.
Juun refers to this aesthetic as "street tailoring", continuing, "I like to overlap different items and silhouettes and change them. I restructure the classical items or take things to pieces to make totally new items and silhouettes."
