Dear Shaded Viewers,
"Supersize Me" could be an apt description of Groundwave's last collection. Echoing his peers' current longing for stronger shoulders and oversize shapes, Kim Sun Ho decided to reinterpret military clothing and iconic menswear staples, such as the peacoat or bomber jacket. Using neoprene for several of his pieces -a real obsession amongst Seoul designers at the moment- he gave his menswear line a new direction, making it more concise and minimal.
