Essentials: KB Lee
HEAD OF DESIGN FOR UNDEFEATED, INC.
Transitioning from one of the more recognizable sneaker boutiques around the globe to a mature clothing line with seasonal collections and rare collaborations, UNDEFEATED, or UNDFTD, has been a frequent to the viral pages of HYPEBEAST. Now in its 10th year of business, the California-based brand is fresh off its latest store opening in San Francisco as well as enticing joint efforts with Converse, PUMA and Foot Locker. Being an honored colleague of ours, we linked up with UNDFTD’s Head Designer and HYPEBEAST blogger, KB Lee, to advance our Essentials series. Born in Korea and raised in Los Angeles, Lee displays an affinity for various cultural experiences with an awesome array of worldly products that likely influence his eclectic design abilities. Highlights from his toting necessities include small luxury pieces, Asia exclusive products, and personal hygiene goods, with a few UNDFTD logos sprinkled in. Be sure to check out KB Lee’s HYPEBEAST blog, twitter and tumblr, each documenting his frequent travels and design inspirations.
