Last season we looked at the Korean menswear collections shown at New York Fashion Week's Concept Korea. Now for the Fall/Winter 2016 season we shift our focus to womenswear. We're pleased to introduce you to JARRET & YOHANIX.

In Blood He Gently Flows Through My Heart

For Spring/Summer 2016 LEE JIYEON brought us a collection inspired by a sinister retelling of Snow White. For Fall/Winter 2016 she's become engrossed in the fatalist romance found in vampire flicks, trading apples for blood. With "In Blood" JARRET shows us that fully embracing the streetwear wave is not a bad thing, especially if taking notes from HYEIN SEO.  We believe that this is the label's strongest showing to date, where the experimental numbers effortlessly blended with the mainstays. We love every little detail from the cuffs to maxi tassels and we are delighted to share with you 10 of our favorite looks:


This marked YOHANIX's NYFW debut and designer KIM YOHAN certainly did not take the opportunity lightly. The Tim Burton-esque approach of Fall/Winter 2015 was transformed into a much more sophisticated collection that still retained a gothic edge. We are big fans of the librarian/grandma/geek chic theme that is given depth by channeling the plight of outsiders like Hamlet. YOHANIX Fall/Winter 2016 is a valiant effort that incorporates a hearty variety of textures, fabrics, prints, and embellishments — that beading!! Here's 10 of our favorite looks:
