Trending: Americana, Prints, and Zany Colours @ Forever 21, Seoul

Image     Image

I have been a fan of Forever 21 since my visit to New York and Toronto and luckily there is a store right in the middle of Oxford Street, London, so I pop over whenever I am in the bustling UK capital. So you can imagine how chuffed I was to find it in Seoul, South Korea – the area of Myeong-dong. The latter is famed for being one of the most sought-after locations for shopping so as per logic, Forever 21 is massive here. I was piqued by the interesting fascination with American-inspired clothing but hey, it is after all well-known that the Koreans (and the Japanese) are quite fashion-forward when it comes to setting the trends.

I have contrasted the above with printed pants and citrus colours of the moment:

And finally, one of my favourite pieces – the drop-hem dress (picked one for myself 🙂 )
