During our years of avocation with the Korean fashion industry, the most common misconception we come across is that Korean fashion brands only produce small sizes. If you agree with this presumption, walking down the street of Garosu-gil might just be enough to prove you wrong as you will notice Korean fashion enthusiasts’ love for oversized clothing. A simple scroll through Korea’s most noticeable fashion bloggers’ Instagram profiles will provide the same results.
And that’s exactly where AJOBYAJO comes in. Founded by Kim Se-Hyung after graduating from Kookmin University in 2015, the Seoul-based contemporary streetwear label stands out for its peculiar aesthetics, bold messages touching delicate social matters in their collections, and of course, oversized clothing. In await of SeHyung’s and his team’s new collection, we dug into their website to present you 5 oversized pieces we love and are available to buy right now on their web store.
