The reason we started these top 5 album picks was to showcase another side to designers. Music is so intrinisically linked with fashion that we felt it only natural we start asking some of our favourite designers about what they’ve been listening to over the last year.
We often make assumptions about what type of music a designer listens to in their downtime and we made the assumption that Koeun Park would spend her time listening to obscure whale songs – instead she apologised for her ‘terribly commercial’ taste in music, which consisted of Kings Of Leon and Jay-Z amongst others. It’s always nice to be surprised.
Take a leap to see her picks.
