K-LINE 

KEMONO  CHARACTER CREATION

CONCEPT

K-LINE was created in 2014 and released its first collection the following year. From the beginning, K-LINE's production style has been based on the idea of "rediscovering individuality" through the appearance of animals. The non-human figure has surprised and impressed people all over the world as a way to pursue a relationship between people and animals that enriches communication by breaking the boundaries of race, gender, and body shape. The kemonosuit, which is created by confronting the ever-advancing technology and a wide variety of materials, will be an option for next-generation fashion that plays a different role from existing clothes. EIXIN and Rady will propose a way of individuality in the modern age through their creations based on their rich imagination.
