    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.

    turn of the tide













    Only in retrospection do I finally understand the metaphor lying in this could-have been absolutely perfect day.

    We woke up to the sound of waves crashing onto shore—melodic, steady, easy, easy there. We followed the sound, clumsily stepping on wet stone until the sound surrounded us. Until the sound appeared before us. The Andaman Sea. I’ve always been more terrified of the ocean than enthusiastic. It seems like most oceans were more like violently playful children—they never know when to cool it. I asked the sea to be gentle to me. And it complied. In the water, I could no longer feel the distinction between sand and water. They were one. They were soft and kind. The sand created tiny dips in the sea several feet in but it never reached clavicle height. Great. For a woman who can’t swim. Once I had enough love from Andaman, I sat under the loving shade of the palm trees. Ahhh. Peering to my left, belly against the towel, there is a swing. How did it get there? I could not even contribute it to my great imagination. Perhaps it’s a product of a kid or a local or a man or a woman or maybe a toursit who knew how to live. I thank you.


    After a few gorgeous hours of that, we returned to the hotel. Washed off any remnants of Andaman’s love and took an ungraceful belly flop onto the bed. We turned on the tv. And on BBC, it said “Trump is now the President of the United States of America.” Fuckkkkkkkkkkkkk, today is the worst day ever.
