KEENKEE designer Kim Kee’s year has been as disrupted as anyone else’s but thanks to South Korea’s rigid safety standards, the creative still got married at a domestic ceremony. Some of the well-dressed guests were there for another reason, however, beyond enjoying the festivities. “Sneakily,” the designer explained, “I’ve captured imagery of KEENKEE Spring/Summer 2021 … at my own wedding.”

Keeping in line with the young label’s neo-futuristic bent, KEENKEE’s SS21 show, “FIELD NEW,” is a rich exploration of patterns, prints and relaxed garments. Kim’s background as a graphic designer comes into play by way of a clever digitization of his patternmaking process, allowing the designer to toy with construction before a garment is even constructed. Inspired by these pattern vectors, Kee’s SS21 looks include a host of sophisticated shirts, suits, slacks and even a few technical parkas, nearly all laden with bold splashes of color.
