Make Break Remix: The Rise of K-Style

- by Fiona Bae THAMES & HUDSON

It may have come to prominence in recent years, but the energetic creative scene in Korea has been bubbling away for far longer. Make Break Remix offers a peek into this culture, based around a series of conversati­ons with prominent creators in music, fashion, design, art and food, punctuated by documentar­ystyle photo essays showing creatives at work and at play as well as the environmen­ts that have shaped them. Conversati­ons with commentato­rs follow, with the book rounded out by some short essays on independen­t fashion labels.

As Monocle’s editor-in-chief Andrew Tuck writes, ‘there’s a commitment to inventiven­ess that endlessly intrigues’, and the book’s treatments, while brief, are testament to this and an excellent taster.
