    Lynn Kim Do

    Lynn Kim Do may be the first fashionista to define and coin the term Neckbreakin’ Style but she is certainly not the only person that this term encompasses. Lynn takes inspiration from the street, from the mundane and thus her extraordinary everyday experiences, and presents it rawly along with visuals and personal style. This is a platform beyond personal style. It is a space of personal experiences. Lynn Do creates a platform that curates her very honest, sometimes too honest, stories called "Street Talk" with style that is also uniquely raw. Having footprints all over the United States, her view of fashion can not be defined by one location or even one style except one - streetwear. She believes in minimal and clean streetwear without losing all the attitude and sass with it. Her visual and production expertise has accumulated many highly recognized repertoire of projects with clients like Revlon and Urban Outfitters. She has been featured on Nylon.com, The New York Times, and WWD to name a few. If you ask her though, her biggest personal achievement is surviving a year lease in a six floor walk-up NYC apartment.

    Transitional Hues


    "How do you still tell the world that you are welcoming Spring with arms wide open and watery eyes (from allergies) without catching pneumonia or frost bite? "










    Jacket - Zara // Stripe Reversible Dress - Reverie NY // Over The Knee Boots - Aldo Shoes // Faux Septum Ring - Street Boutique // Teddy Boy 2 Round Sunnies - Spitfire

    We're in that awkward stage where it looks deceivingly warm outside but as soon as you step foot in the shade, you start losing all feeling in your face. I'm not sure if this feeling is ever acceptable. Let alone in the last week of March! You enthusiastically pull out those Summer pieces only to throw on a wool coat and a scarf over it. Your closet is bursting from it's hinges. 
    I am you. And I totally get you.

    How do you still tell the world that you are welcoming Spring with arms wide open and watery eyes (from allergies) without catching pneumonia or frost bite? 

    You play on the colors.

    Put away half of your dark colored sweaters and go ahead and reluctantly put away the third black leather jacket you have hanging in your closet. Pull out the pastel, subtle printed, nude jackets, long dresses, and shoes. Reveal that winter skin cautiously because the night chills are brutal. My second advice - Don't abandon layering just yet! Pair your skillful or even novice layering skills with lighter hues and subtle prints. Introduce your Spring pieces slowly. And I promise, you won't suffer like I did all those years (and just several weeks) ago.
