    You would think that the overflow of patterns may have made the overall look messy, but it actually played out perfectly. Great shot there, Scott!

    I love the mix of colors, except for the skirt. It just seems a tad wild for the already colorful ensemble. I adore the oversized sweater the most though. It looks so warm and comfy!

    Like the comment that this looks nomadic in a sense. It does have a tribal sense.

    This is one of the best street style pics you have ever posted.

    This is exactly the kind of projection I would expect from youth that grew up on over stimulation of video games, tv, movies and electronic music.

    She is awesome!

    Luv the skirt – don't remember seeing anything quite like it (reminds me a bit of Polish paper-cut patterns). Don't know where you found her – lived one year in Korea and got very very tired with the monotony of styles – rarely anybody stood out, or had an original style. But like sb noticed, she doesn't seem Korean – from the style and face she reminds me of Japanese.

    AWESOME! RAD! THE SHOES ADD THAT PERFECT DASH OF RED AND THE BOTTOM FINISHING OF THIS CRAZY OUTFIT! I don't think it would have worked as well if the shoes were black, ya know?
    This rocks-
    I think you should stay in Korea..
    And let the large men in Europe who wear their clothes to tight have their ego's cool off for a while.
    And those anorexic socialites can go eat.
    Sartorialist in Korea should be a permanent fix!

    kind of a 1968..1969 vibe going on.

    i could never pull of the loose fitting cardigan but love the print as wel as the central asian looking and psychadelic kashmiri type print of her skirt.
    she definitely pulls off the look. i think it's her confidence and un-pretentiousness. most of us tend to be so finicky about this not matching with that or that not matching with this.
    like a few other people said, i too agree that she's most probably japanese based on her facial features(weird u might say but over the years, i've come to differentiate between asian faces) as well as the tour book in her hand. there are many japanese tourists that visit neighboring Korea.

    This walking eclectic heap of clothing and accessories is what I keep referring to as "Hippie gone wrong" Too bad because I know she's really trying to own this look, but she's got way too much going on here. The shoes are bad and there's no justification for them as far as lending validity to her pieces of choice. Ironically, the rest of the pieces, save boring messenger bag, all stand out on their own and are beautiful! The colors are just not working well with each other. I do say "Go for it girl" boldness and guts wise. But in the end her ensemble is a bomb! I do love her regal posture.

    Harajuku Fruits goes to college. She put some thought into this. Look at how she ties her sneakers, one round the back and one in front. Put your hand on the screen, cover the skirt and imagine this with jeans. Boring and matchy. I wish I'd had the imagination to dress like this in college.

    I think she looks rad. I love the red sneakers (converse) and the oversized sweater. Also the pattern clash is wonderful. I think pulling off a look like this needs a lot of black.

  80. Brianne

    February 8, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    I love how everything looks random, and yet, everything is pulled together by similar colors, lines, etc. The small details like the shoelaces and the leather gloves are also very cool and confident.

    The careless air about her makes me wonder if she really thought about the combination. Of course, the idea that it all works unintentionally makes it that much more intriguing.

    Kim was visiting Seoul with her dance group and wanted to see the city she had only been to once before. Comfort and warmth were key as she took her map and began to walk,killing time until her night time performance.

    She noticed that the colors of the city were gray and she stood out amongst the drab clothes worn by too many of the women. But she did not mind that…

    I love this. Brianne's absolutely right–there's a deep, almost subliminal harmony in the lines and colors that makes everything work together. (E.g., the way the flare of the skirt echos the drape of the sweater…) And the elements, unrelated as they seem, come together to form a portrait of the wearer's vision of herself. As a trial fusion dancer, I completely "get" this one (though the idea of wearing this much color makes me twitchy!).

    As several other posters have noted, she is definitely not Korean. Even without the guidebook in hand she would stand out as a tourist. I've lived here for six months and never seen anyone this bold, colorful, or whimsical.

    Korean style is a testament to the fact that they never had the sixties, and didn't have a counter-cultural renaissance in the 90s like Japan. As a result, style here looks very restrained, even tight, and always polished.

    O wow, this is amazing. I love the way that she put this outfit together, it is so impeccably Korean. I love the adverse way of dressing from what we see over here in the USA.

    She might be Japanese, based on the tourist guide book, but she obviously has great taste b/c she came to visit Korea. :P The only thing even remotely "Korean" about this outfit (and it's not even Korean) are the Chuck Taylors. They're EVERYWHERE in Korea worn by all the young kids.

    Oh, and I JUST noticed her leather black gloves. This outfit is totally wacky, but it works somehow!

    My guess is she is traveling and the cardigan is for warmth. Her outfit beneath is very well co ordinated with the exception of the green bag. The look is fun, and her expressions so serene above such a vibrant collection of color.

    Traveling to India made me really appreciate color…it opens your eyes towards happiness. It seems like "most" people get insecure about color and shy away from it…afraid of what it will do to those around you or yourself…I say let them talk-let some light shine into their sad gray, black, brown cookie cutter style/personality. So liberating….

    hey, satorialist! did you talk to her before or after taking this picture?
    does she even know her picture is up here?
    she is missing all the fame as a fashionista!
    she is definately unique no matter where she is from.
    the guide book she is holding is called 'the beetle map'.
    it is written in english and japanese but anyone can use it. great for locals, too.

    This is a popular 'Mary' look in Seoul from a popular Korean drama 'Mary' played by Geun-young Moon last winter. You usually see this around Hong-Dae(Hongik University).
    This is not a typical look you see on locals around Cheongdam-dong, Apgujeong-dong or Shinsa-dong, where Dosan park is.

    I’m a Korean, live in Seoul. She is not Korean but Japanese(I think…), to touring. she got the mapbook in her hand^^ and her morphology is very “exotic” !!
    In Korea, we can see very many many Japanese to touring.
    Japanese love colorful fashion more than Korean.

  217. Wizzy

    November 20, 2012 at 3:41 am

    I’m not sure she’s Korean- may be Japanese.

    As I am myself Korean,
    I think the brochure in her right hand is the guide book for Japanese tourists.

    which means that she might be just a Japanese tourist holding a guide book.
