    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.

    A Day With Lynn Do


    "Can you take in the environment openly? Do you see beauty in every corner, alley, sewer, and aerosol brush stroke? I do. And he does. What's better than going through these experiences alone is sharing it with a dear friend. Friendship is such a loose term. You could have just met them. You could start as unlikely friends. You could know them since grade school. Time doesn't matter. What matters is that you both see beauty and eagerly want to create."

    Can you take in the environment openly? Do you see beauty in every corner, alley, sewer, and aerosol brush stroke? I do. And he does. What's better than going through these experiences alone is sharing it with a dear friend. Friendship is such a loose term. You could have just met them. You could start as unlikely friends. You could know them since grade school. Time doesn't matter. What matters is that you both see beauty and eagerly want to create. You also push each other to see even more. I think this is what I wanted to leave behind with these images. If you can look beyond the narcissistic images of me (ha!), I hope it encourages you to explore. 

    On this particular day, we explored Lower East Side for hours and somehow ended it on the light littered streets of Little Italy. Our stomach was painfully stuffed with Morganstern ice cream. We were constantly teased by the "raining" forecast but never felt a drop of rain. He showed me the infamous Freeman alley. I fell in love. We chatted with strangers. We stood in the middle of car honking streets. I can remember the heat. I can remember how I couldn't finish the melting one scoop of Pistachio Green Tea ice cream. I can remember looking for a coffee shop. But walking down Little Italy instead. I can remember just being.
