    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.

    Superdry on a horse. Okay, not really.


    "As a horseback riding noob, I had no idea how to dress for this occasion. Nor was I prepared for how sore I was going to be right after. I sure as hell don't take any of this experience or sore inner thighs back."





    Ombre One Piece - Superdry // Sunset Denim Shorts - Tobi

    When is the last time you did something for the first time?

    As a horseback riding noob, I had no idea how to dress for this occasion. Nor was I prepared for how sore I was going to be right after. I sure as hell don't take any of this experience or sore inner thighs back. This ombre blue Superdry once-piece was a lifesaver because most importantly, it was absolutely comfortable. After riding and galloping through beaches, rivers, and roads for two hours, all I wanted to do was dive right into the beach. Which I'm not going to lie, I didn't even do. I was so tired and sore, I cracked open a beer and fell asleep. 

    I have always pushed myself to experience as many firsts as possible. You know that phrase, which I'm surprised Drake hasn't quoted yet or maybe he did, "When was the last time you did something for the first time?" Well, that is one of many life mottos of mine. There's so much inspiration around the act of seeking to just experience, the actual experience, and then to store away for creative muse. Horseback riding is essentially a huge trust exercise. You have no real control over the animal you're riding. It has emotions. It can be temperamental. It can vibe off of the rider's energy. It will know when you're cocky or scared. I really put my life in this horse's hands or hoofs. His name was Salmonella. I know, I know. I chuckled, too. 

    I can't wait to continue to travel to places for the first time or return to places I've been to and do other firsts. And I can't wait to document it to share it with you.
