Looking at Kathleen Kye's standout jacket from her Body Collection, I can't help but think of the theatrical fashion of Viktor and Rolf as well as Alexander McQueen's experimental creations. A dramatic piece, Kye's jacket takes the shape of a hand that looks to belong to King Kong himself.
A Korean fashion designer who is taking the industry by storm, Kathleen Kye was inspired to create the giant hand jacket from a dream in which she was being squeezed by, well, a giant hand. As the youngest student in the MA menswear program class of 2011 at the renowned Central St. Martins (CSM) school in London, Kathleen Kye's graduate collection is garnering her much-deserved attention.
Witty, amusing and yet completely chic, Kathleen Kye's Body Collection is the start of a promising career.
