I had the pleasure of attending my second show of the season featuring Iijin . The word iiJin means “precious” in Korean. The design team at iiJin believes that everyone should have fun expressing themselves through fashion. The iiJin collection fuses the Grunge rocker attitude with a Glam sensibility, which makes the line perfect for the daring fashionistas.
The collection is inspired by the music icons of the 1990’s Grunge Rock movement when trendsetters like Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain expressed their personal style and individuality through their style and sound.
iiJin is famous for their Invisible Wedge Shoes, which are a favorite of the biggest stars in the industry. Iijin has gifted their shoes to stars Randy Jackson, Mario Lopez, Lil Mama, Brandy, Chaka Khan, Fonzworth Bentley, and NBA legend John Salley! Iijin has also been featured on “The Insider”, E!’s My Style and Perez Hilton’s fashion site CocoPerez.com.
I must admit I am new to the brand. But their street style edge kept my interest that night. The wedge sneakers, tartan patterns and leather made the show memorable. The tribalesque sequin pieces were fun and I could definitely see them on funky urban socialites. I have shared some of my favorite images from the show at Lincoln Center down below. Please let me know which of the looks were your favorite!
