South Korean label IISE returns for Spring/Summer 2019 with another collection that looks to the imprint’s heritage. This season reflects on Korea’s past, present and future to explore the role of civilian protest within the country’s progress. The collection is a combination of signature IISE design elements, such as modern streetwear silhouettes, military-inspired tactical vests, vintage South Korean sportswear and traditional Korean garments — varying silhouettes which themselves display a story of evolution.

“For the past three years, we have passed Gyeongbok Palace and the Blue House on our daily commute to our showroom,” says IISE. “On this commute, we have personally witnessed the dynamic between riot police and civilian protestors. The Palace and the Blue House is a poetic backdrop to the sum of those parts, reminding us that our (and the world’s) progress from dictatorship to diplomacy was built by protest. That commute, and this collection, is a reminder that protest is not a sign of complication, but a sign of community.”

Flip through the IISE SS19 collection lookbook above and head over the IISE’s web store to shop the label’s previous line.
