LIE SANG BONG

Written by

Master of Fashion

What do Korea’s First Lady, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, and Rihanna have in common? They have all worn Lie Sang Bong’s designs. One of Korea’s most prominent fashion designers, he established the LIE SANGBONG brand in 1985. Mr. Lie blends traditional influences and innovative techniques, combining such diverse influences as Korean poetry, calligraphy and architecture, 1930’s Film Noir heroines, Bauhaus design, Cubism, and the natural world. Mr. Lie produces unique fabrics for his collections by applying such techniques to natural fabrics as laser cutting, embroidery and digital printing. In 1993 at Seoul Fashion Week, he debuted his first ready-to-wear collection, “The Reincarnation,” and quickly gained recognition among Korean celebrities and the press. He received the Designer of the Year Award from the mayor of Seoul in 1999 and he began expanding his brand’s business into Europe in 2002 at Paris Fashion Week. In 2007, LG Electronics launched the Cyon Shine Mobile Phone designed by LIE SANGBONG. This was one of the first limited-edition cell phones to be designed by a fashion designer. He has also created uniforms for the A1 Grand Prix Korean national team (2008) and designed an exhibit to celebrate the first anniversary of the Korean Cultural Center in London, which was later displayed in Trafalgar Square (2009). He currently acts as the president of Council of Fashion Designers of KOREA (CFDK) and a cultural Ambassador for the City of Seoul. Lie Sang Bong shared his experience in the world of fashion with Seoul Journal's Executive Editor Anthony Al-Jamie.

Street Style: Red Roses

We spotted this super cute couple out on the chic streets of Sinsa, Garosugil. We like how they both have a classy and sophisticated style with an edge. The contrast of the lady’s delicate lace dress with a leather motorcycle jacket and the guy’s skater preppy combination are both the perfect balance.

Street Style: Dandy Gentleman

We spotted this stud in Dongdaemun during fashion week. He has a unique dandy style incorporating different fun elements. His military style linen jacket, bolo tie, and two-tone shoes make for an interesting mix of different styles that somehow manages to work.

서을패션위크에서 눈에 띈 댄디한 스타일의 남자분.펀한 요소가 가미된 의상이 돋보였는데요.
밀리터리풍의 리넨자켓, 볼보타이와 두가지 색깔의 신발이 안어울리는듯하면서 멋지게 조화를 이루었네요.

Crop Top and Leather

Crop tops have made a huge come back and are all the rage this year. This lady knows she looks good and isn’t afraid to proclaim it to the world. Her leather disco pants and all black make for a fun and sexy, modern “Grease” inspired look.
