Lulu is photographed in her home in Brooklyn wearing the tie vest top, see our dialogue with Lulu here! Contrast fabrication creates depth from the side view and its playful tie closures. Wear as a layering piece or tie tightly for a closed bodice under your vintage blazer. The Designer, J. Kim, was inspired by a small island in South Korea where the last women are practicing the art of free-diving named Haenyeo Live. This profession can only be occupied by women and there are just a few Haenyeos in South Korea who still perform it. Jenia Kim was inspired by these women, by their strength – both physical and moral – and by the history of Haenyeo community where women take the leading part in making money for their families and devoting their lives to the sea.
