Fell deeply in love with this particular ensemble: the skirt is sexy and definitely a
statement, but I would wear this out in public or for a special event any day.
What stood out about this was the colors used: a sort of boring and expected
beige, but with the stand out shades of pink and yellow, that color was no longer
boring. And the white nails only accentuated that.
Inspired by an edgy era with a post-school violence fashion of SS13 and post unemployed/
youth mode of FW1314, Kye is the definition of a calling for an unexplored and untouched youth, one so sensitive and insecure, that only something small like a bandaid makes a minuscule difference. To define Kye simply, is basically to say a journey of unraveling the teenage mind and blossoming into an established and secure human. Done so by the process of experimenting with lots of colorful bandaids, sheer pieces with basic bandeaus, high-waisted skirts (similar to those school girls would wear) also with asymmetrical motorcycle jackets, that only the “hipster” girls in school would be caught dead in.
With colors like basic white, grey, and black, Kye transforms a new color palette into a deep but fascinating transformation of solids and key patterns. The fabrics used include polyester, cotton jersey, and metal foiled jersey, plus more, keeping in mind these are looks you could in fact pull off off of the runway, maybe adding in a pair of Superga sneakers instead of white vintage wooden clogs. It’s not hard to see why Kye was chosen as one of the top 10 street style brands to look out for in the past year.
The collection reveals the optimism of todays youth, and the constant hassle of attempting to change our appearance every moment. Will band-aids really heal a scar so deep inside? If you’re wearing Kye, let’s hope so.
