Friday Knitting Inspiration. Sunghee Bang.

Sunghee Bang is a young Korea-born New York-based designer. Bang is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology where she won the first place in art and knitwear design. After graduation Bang worked with such brands as Donna Karan, J. Mendel, Jill Stuart, Peter Som in New York and Alexander McQueen in London. In 2009 Bang launched her own knitwear label – Sunghee Bang.

Bang says that she was really inspired by the work created at Alexander McQueen, but found it often “not really wearable”, so in her own label she tries “to do the same creativity, but make it wearable.”

Bang is know for her work with textures, especially cables, and shapes. The designer loves to combine modern silhouettes with intricate stitch details. Almost all pieces in her collection are made in neutral muted colors to balance the elaborate design.

In my personal opinion, Sunghee Bang succeeded in reaching the balance between the creativity and “wearability” in her designs. I am completely smitten by this white cable dress. What a great craftsmanship!

Have a great weekend!

    I am not so sure and the wearability………..I like them but not as much as others you have shared 🙂

      I guess the cable dress is definitely not the most casual one, but often the designers create some pieces just for the sake of creating them. I guess they need it for the inspiration. Bang is mostly known for her knit accessories (you can see them on her website) and they are very “down to earth” 🙂

    Astounding creativity.

    On another note, I have been wearing my linen tee a lot. I think you were right. I didn’t enjoy knitting it so much, but I do love wearing it each week. And it can go in the machine to wash!

      Yay! Linen is wonderful to wear! I still didn’t dare to wash my linen dress in the washing machine though 🙂
