I always love a contemporary designer clothes that take inspirations from a traditional dress. Firstly it will preserve the culture, be it the fabric sourced, the clothing shape, or the intricate embroidery of that particular traditional clothes. Secondly, life is too short to wear a boring dress.



I came across Leesle, a Korean designer who turns a traditional Korean hanbok dress into a modern one. First thing first, that is quite mind-blowing to turn a ceremonial dress into something you can see in VogueAs a background, hanbok is usually worn as semi formal or formal clothing through special occassions. The Korean traditional clothes consists of several parts including Jeogori (upper garment),  Chima (skirt), Baji (men's hanbok), Po or Durumagi (robe), Magoja (outer jacket). It is grat to see the Korean designers and the younger generation do a modern twist and create the hanbok revival.




My satin dress from Leesle is a hanbok inspired dress that has a flare skirt, a line shape, and a high  waist cut. I really love the structure and simplicity! The dress itself is quite puffy but it has seamless stitch and construction. The satin material is quite flowy and it has a high quality sheen. The volume and curves works well with my petite body and somehow gives the illusion of lengthening your entire body.



I guess no one could have thought that this particular dress is a modern take on a hanbok from hundreds of years ago. I love how Leesle make it so versatile and modern, I can easily pair it with my autumn coat and shiny heels to add an extra oomph. 




You can get the hanbok inspired clothing from Leesle website that has bilingual languange. It is easy to navigate and showcase both men and women clothing. The website uses english and there is a fere shipping for orders above USD 99.
