    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.

    Escape to Barbados











    United States is a hot mess.
    I am in the 11th hour of an extensive project..unfinished.
    I haven't slept.
    I haven't prepared for NYFW.
    I've barely seen anyone I cared about.

    So the only reasonable thing to do in this moment is to run away. To escape.

    I know, I know. Maybe "reasonable" isn't exactly the right word. Maybe it's "I-wanna-fucking-leave-so-I'm-going-to-do-whatever-the-fuck-I-want." It's a stretch. I do like that word better. Okay, maybe it's not a word. It's a feeling. Yes, it's a feeling. And maybe that's a scapegoat, but in efforts of my practice of being kinder to myself, why should I make up an explanation at all?

    First off, who the hell goes to Barbados. Now, I know more people that went to Bermuda, to Nepal, and even to Alaska than those who went to Barbados. I know one thing about Barbados—Rihanna. Let Barbados be the place to set the standard in badassness. But my hopes are high. So let me do this for you, for me, and more importantly, for my mom (who is on her first trip outside of her two home countries—United States and Vietnam). I will give you Barbados through my eyes. Let’s start with Dover Beach and my new favorite swimwear rn.
