a lad. by K Label was founded in 2013 and is based in menswear and accessories. K was born and raised in South Korea, and educated in fashion at Northumbria and London Universities. While studying fashion, he wanted learn more about clothes rather than the trends and evolution of fashion, so he trained himself in the art of construction and garment making while interning where he could learn sewing and pattern cutting techniques. K is a "maker" rather than a "designer" when it comes to his clothing. The most important aspect of K's clothing is that clothes may not last forever but attitudes can and his love for individualism and deconstruction lead him to make clothing for middle ground between the attitudes of young lads and those of traditional menswear.
