Lie Sangbong’s SS17 collection was inspired by Chaekgado: Korean still-life paintings that were popular during the latter part of the Joseon dynasty. The paintings feature bookshelves and the personal effects that are placed in and on them — reflecting the lifestyle of scholars and their high regard for knowledge and virtue.
As one of my favorite collaborations of 2016 I had the pleasure of styling and modeling in Lie Sangbong’s first social media collection, which included a first look at the collection and styling three looks to my taste. My personal effects included an Eb clarinet, Diana Vreeland’s Memos and Love by Leo Buscaglia which adorned the bookshelves.
