_Juun.J '08

_J Graduated from Esmod Seoul in 1992 Juun.J began his career as a designer for “Chiffons” followed by design director for Club Monaco” and “NIX”. In 1999 he launched his brand “Lone Costume” and has shown it during the Seoul Fashion Week ever since. He has also collaborated several times with the Japanese artist Nuts and the English artist Simon Henwood. In July 2007 he will show his collection during the Official Schedule of the Men's Fashion Week in Paris for the first time. Juun.J likes to create new silhouettes and garments from an overlapping of items and silhouette to silhouette all of which dramatically conflict with each other. Shirts and cardigans, knit sleeved jackets and knitwear are overlapping each other and newly born as different items. Juun.J basic design concept is Classic & Tailoring - "I like to mix and transform classic items with street fashion". For his Winter 07-08 collection Juun.J mixes in an atypical way some chic & classic moods with streetwear. He then creates the street tailoring.

As a memo, and if he or anyone at totem happen to be reading this, I would love the amazing sleevless top left trench and the incredible bottom left trouser/short/skirt type thing. Ooh and the top second from the right cape type hooded piece - Amazing.
