STYLE RANT: SWEATER KNITS

Finally, finally, I have time to sit myself down and do a proper STYLE RANT post. I have been wanting to do this for months now but now that school is officially out of the way for a few weeks, I figured its time to do so.

As everyone knows, its winter in the Northern Hemisphere which means that South Korea is experiencing winter right now. And THAT means boys in sweaters and coats, yummmm. Winter fashion is somthing I look forward to all year because I live in the tropical and sunny Singapore and the closest we come to winter is torrential rain during monsoon season. Since coats and knits are hardly the best things to wear here I shall satisfy myself with browsing through press and fan taken photos as well as online shops.

I don’t know about you but I absolutely love knit sweaters.  The knit makes the wearer look more slender and it basically fits just about every body type. They’re not seen much on kpop though because cable knits are used mainly when performers have a genteel concept such as with ballad songs which there aren’t alot of in winter. Kpop artists usually go for christmas patterned sweaters such as the one I featured on Luhan and Saint Laurent a few posts back. The only people I know (or care about) wearing knits on stage are the EXO members who are currently promoting Miracles in December. They also received first place twice for that song, so congrats boys!

EXO opt for a monotonous color scheme to fit in with the mellow and soothing theme of their song but why shouldn’t you wear other colors right? Here are some other jumpers from several Korean brands that I personally adore.

With the exception of Liful which has been worn by numerous korean stars such as EXO, none of these brands are particularly well-known so I hope that you check these brands out! Out of all these sweaters, my favourites have to be the Lomort one and the MODIFIED Sky Blue one. The oatmeal and navy go so well together for the Lomort sweater and its perfect for overly skinny guys who want to look abit more manly coughkyungsoocough and the sky blue is such a beautiful color, MODIFIED did a good job picking it.

Till next time, then!

 

STYLE LOG/RANT: Lee Joon vs Joo Won

Joo Won’s shirt post: https://stripesandanchors.wordpress.com/2013/10/21/style-log-the-good-doctor/

Score!!! I finally identified an article of clothing of MBLAQ’s which I’ve been dying to do but MBLAQ wears understated pieces most of the time and let’s be honest, only the greatest amongst us can tell one striped shirt from another. But here’s Lee Joon wearing the same shirt as Joo Won! I’m sorry for posting this shirt twice in a row but I couldn’t resist posting some MBLAQ in this blog because I really love them.

Speaking of which, Lee Joon has been making great success as an actor. Check out Rough Play or 배우는배우다 directed by Kim Ki-duk. I can vouch for Kim Ki-duk’s work too, he’s one of my favourite korean director and he’s one of the very few Korean directors who made it Cannes and Berlin 🙂

I’m a little later than most that follow the series as I only just finished it! Joo Won’s acting scores 10 out of 10 as per usual and the drama is really unique and it has a personal significance to me so I really enjoyed it. He wears a lot of nice shirts in that movie, some of which I’m still trying to find but this piece in particular is really pretty! I wish i was a guy sometimes so I could wear shirts like these to work hehe.
