Terry Shin, head designer of BLACKMERLE launches Know Thyself this October - sounds pretty serious right? Well, it is. The brand innovates and reflects a military thread that runs through all the collections alongside a grunge aesthetic. It's a little contemporary bit of fashion mash-up over here.
For one weekend it's all in limited supply at The Playground. The garments are cut and sewn with seamless (haha) craftsmanship for a trademark BLACKMERLE fit. Shin is shooting to show at Seoul Fashion Week and Toronto Fashion week next so be sure to catch up on Instagram.
Come down to 434 Columbia for a live performance by SOHLOH & HH, oil painting and mixed media glitch art by SIA KIM and video projections throughout the space. The bar is serving up handcrafted cocktails on launch night Fri, Oct 23, 11PM - Late. The shop is open Sat Oct 24 - Sun Oct 25, 11AM - 8PM as well so stop in and feel it out. Sunglasses at night anybody?
