Now based in Korea, KEENKEE continues introducing its seasonal menswear lineups as part of New York Fashion Week. The brand’s latest effort is an example of how to make upcycling effortlessly contemporary, delivering a selection of relaxed, slouchy shapes informed by disparate patterns and techno fabrics drawn from collections of deadstock textiles.

Designer Kee Kim translated unused bits of wool whipcord, fleece, velvet and recycled polyester into the new assortment as part of his ongoing quest to develop signature silhouettes. Car coats, over shirts, blazers and other elements of tailoring are rendered boxy and stitched with contrasting thread to highlight the rearranged seams and trousers are realized as long and pooling, flared or short and culotte-like, complete with exposed lining. Rich gradient hues and tonal shades speak to Kim’s prior career as a graphic designer while fuzzy floral patterns and stretchy jersey base layers maintain the comfortable aesthetic that informs much of KEENKEE’s output.
