Eccentric Metaphorical Ensembles
Minky Ha Uses Fashion to Create Statements About Capitalism

By: Ana Lopez (Star) Jan 21, 12

At first sight, the collection by South Korea-born designer Minky Ha seems like a series of costumes from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; however, these futuristic fashionable pieces were created with the intention to give capitalism a different mode of manifestation.

Entitled ‘What Men Live By?,’ this collection is full of symbolism and metaphors. The idea behind each outfit is to represent a different stage in someone’s life in capitalism. Some pieces cover the body from head to toe, while others from shoulders to toes, either way these suits make a strong visual statement because of their chunky appearance and bizarre cuts. These large and extravagant ensembles wrap the body in a way that make the models look like they are wearing chic sumo suits.

Styled with gravity-defying, hip pony tails and funky wigs, the designs by Minky Ha are hard to comprehend but fascinating to see.
