It’s the same old, same old for Andre Kim in Bali

Fashion designer Andre Kim must be feeling secure in his “veteran” status as an old eccentric, because he keeps trotting out the exact same show, year after year. He may swap out his main models but not his actual clothing.

Each show has his leading lady (this time “Barbie Doll” Han Chae-young) dressed up in voluminous dresses of similar silhouette and varying shades of color, with a teardrop-headdress reminiscent of nothing so much as a Bedazzled hairnet. The male (Park Shi-hoo) is decked out in stiff multilayers in a cross between a business suit and a suit of armor, except for the purple outfit where he looks like a woodland fairy nymph. Both look like they come from a Star Wars acid dream.

And you can’t forget the piece de resistance: In the middle of the stage, there’s always a pose with the lady running — with anguish! and emotion! — into her man’s arms, and the man dropping a kiss on her forehead.

Yup. Sums it up for the “new” Andre Kim Fashion Art Collection which showed in Bali on August 25 for the International Bali Fashion Week ’08.

 

Pretty much the same thing in any Andre Kim show: Pretty models, familiar everything else.

So why are these actors and actresses modelling such atrocities? I don't understand. They are usually pretty popular and they don't really need this sort of publicity, right? I just don't understand this man's popularity and fashion sense. Esp. as an actor, I wouldn't think I want to be caught dead in one of those outfits....eeeww!

Those shoes are ugly. lol thank you for pointing that out... And the purple thing he was wearing,, all I can say is ewww! Seriously, he's just showing off his upper body it looks like he's wearing a dress or something.. I like the white suit he was wearing though, he should'n't have worn those shoes.. lol

Sometimes I wonder. He's one of the most well known designers in korea, and yet he can't afford to buy himself a wig? Doesn't the spray pant bother Andre Kim at all? Han chae young definitely has better pictures, but glad to see her back. Hope she picks up a romantic comedy soon. Too bad her partner in crime - jaehee- is in the military.

this is not fashion. wow. its costume design, and some would maybe look good in, say, a fantasy novel. i'm astounded that this is allowed on a runway.

ok, i've read many times before that Andre Kim is one of the most famous designers in korea but WHY????? this is a joke, right? he must design some pretty nice, "normal" pieces for everyday wear, right? and the outfits shown at these shows are his avant-garde, couture pieces? cuz, who the HELL wears this sh*t?!?!

I don't understand how year after year all these different (A-list/B-list) celebrities continue to agree to model Andre's "fashion". Thank you for pointing out that he's put out the same stuff year after year, I've been noticing that and have been getting annoyed with it, but not too many people mention it. I could believe that last year's (or some previous year) Ms. Korea pageant actually had all the contestants wear his designs. It's eye barf and Andre Kim needs to seriously consider retiring like 5 years ago. Plus he's one scary lookin dude.

i hope and pray with all my heart that he'll switch from this boring drama scenario,
every year the same outfits ,same forehead kiss, same alien shoes , nothing change in Andre Kim shows and he's still popular , for what? i don't know !!
well every fashion designer has some crazy creativity but not "THE SAME" crazy creativity during several years ,the unique change is the actors and actresses and i have no clue why are all korean stars so devoted to Andre Kim?!!!!!!!

How does he make money again? Do people actually buy his clothes? It's just way too out there.

i actually appreciate what he's trying to do, it ain't pretty, on the other hand that purple synthetic fabric vomit monstrosity is so sexually appealing- it would have been an improvement if the models just walk out naked

I guess if you look at the design as a whole it puts alot of strain on the eyes, trying to figure out what he designer is thinking!!
But as i look at the little details he put here and there...i guess i can see SOME sort of fashion worthy of note. I mean I can sort of see the beauty of some of the lovely stitchework and embroideries done to cloths....takes talent?? haha
And i think all of these costumes are ment to be in a certain era....not modern i dont think....so of course no one would be caught dead wearing them to work....haha.
I give this old guy some credit....poor guy...haha.

I don't have much a fashion sense, but really, I don't get why people are raving about Andre Kim. No groom in their right mind would do a see through in their wedding. Plus, I think I've seen that see through on SSH the last Andre Kim show if I'm not mistaken. These kinds of clothing remind me of the villain roles in Kamen Raider series from the 90s.

Javabeans title is a projection: same old two times is too old. Andre Kim is perhaps the greatest fashion designer of haute couture of all times. Javabeans is unknown in the world of fashion. And even though they dismiss his unparalleled popularity of among Miss Universe contestants, the fashionistas along the boulevards in Paris, Seoul, New York, and London, it seems unlikely Javabean has ever been there. Andre Kim brings more than fashion and apparel: he brings depth of fabric, shades enhanced in all variations of light, transforming luminosity, intensity, and wavelengths of color. Fabric and texture are just particles of Andre Kim's approach (or conception) of attire- which, unfortunately, the critic from Javabean failed to recognize. Not to worry: The only thing Andre Kim might be blamed for is the oversight for allowing someone who lacked Kim's fathomless skill and expertise to overlook Kimm's incredible depths. Fortuneately, once again, Andre Kim has permitted an adoring public to witness his brilliance emanating bountifully among a public (who could value his talents).
