Beyond Closet by Taeyong Ko returned to New York Fashion Week Men’s yesterday to present its latest capsule collection, sponsored by Korean Preview in New York (KPNY) at Industria Superstudio. Beyond Closet’s capsule celebrates KPNY’s 20th Anniversary. KPNY is an annual textile exhibition in New York that features seventy of the most innovative fabric manufacturers from South Korea. The collection consists of 12 looks all created using fabrics featured at the show, highlighting the breadth and quality of textiles from his home country.
The KPNY show will take place at The Metropolitan Pavilion from July 13th – 14th.
Beyond Closet’s collection, titled “Bromance” is influenced by a boy’s night out in Seoul. Many pieces in the collection feature graphic patterns that were inspired by the neon lights hung in Taeyong Ko’s favorite bar. Each look portrays the youth culture of the city and the designer’s personal life with his friends.
“Korean textiles are excellent quality that can compete with both mass Chinese fabrics and high-end European textiles. I especially like the eco-conscious and technical materials, tailored to consumer demands. I am thrilled to celebrate KPNY’s 20th anniversary and that it gave me the opportunity to present my capsule collection made out of excellent Korean textiles during Men’s New York Fashion Week,” says Taeyong Ko.
Beyond Closet, designed by Taeyong Ko is a unisex brand representing classic items reinterpreted for men and women in their twenties and thirties. The collection is a mix of practical, sophisticated and distinguished pieces.
The Beyond Closet KPNY capsule collection will be available for the upcoming season in specialty stores and on www.beyondcloset.com.
