Creative Director  SONGZIO (Ji Oh Song)



Founded in 1993, SONGZIO finds its unique identity through its creative process, paint on black. Every collection begins on a black canvas where SONGZIO creates his paintings. In them, the heavy vertical strokes represent the object while the sharp horizontal strokes represent its emotions, coexisting in ‘order and disorder’.

Order disorder

A sense of duality permeates through SONGZIO’s art and collection. With its avant-garde pattern making, unique silhouette, and artisanal artwork, SONGZIO creates a sense of stark modernism and Asian elegance. Looking through SONGZIO’s own ‘black eyes’, the brand’s dual circle emblem, every piece is designed and crafted by hand in SONGZIO’s Seoul atelier.
