Steve J & Yoni P S/S 2014

Steve J and Yoni P are married fashion designers from Korea, one or both of whom actually graduated from Central Saint Martins University here in the UK. They are renowned for always bringing something fun or mischievous to the catwalk. Even if you aren't familiar with them, some of you might have seen your favourite Korean celebrities wearing their clothes without realizing! Steve J and Yoni P collections are now stocked in many department stores all around the world, and they are becoming more and more well known.

Their collection for Spring/Summer 2014 was of course featured during Seoul Fashion Week. As expected the clothes were super fun, some of the models even carried skateboards with them. I want to share some of the outfits on the runway, as well as some worn by celebrities attending the show. Hopefully you will enjoy it, let me know if you like this kind of fashion post~ and I'll do more! Thanks for reading guys^^

I love that the top and bottom matches~ It's so cute!
 This outfit it super fun, I love the colour and the cutouts on the skirt and top. The shoes also are really awesome and match the concept perfectly. I wrote a post about cute hip hop fashion in Korea previously, and I think it's becoming more and more of an influence!

This Camo print with bright colours is really striking.
 Camouflage print was a huge trend a few seasons ago here in the UK, and it seems to be making a comeback in Korea. Steve J and Yoni P mixed it up a little by incorporating bright colours into their designs, kind of defeating the intended purpose of camouflage, but resulting in really fun outfits.

You can really see the K-pop influence in some pieces!
 This really reminds me of clothes that 4Minute have worn previously, it does seem that Kpop stars and their stylists are big fans of this brand. Again with the hip hop influence, I love the oversized shirt dress, and knee high socks look really awesome with it.

Now here are some of the singers and actresses who attended the show, wearing pieces mostly from previous collections:

Review ~ Laneige Pore Deep Clearing Foam

Today I want to share my review of a cleanser that I bought from Yesstyle. It's the Laneige Pore Deep Clearing Foam, which is actually my first Laneige product. I've heard many good things about their skincare, so I was super excited to try some out for myself. From Yesstyle, it costs about £14 for 160ml, and because you only need a small amount each time, this tube will last me ages! Plus if you shop enough at Yesstyle you can get discounts so it's even cheaper.

The product claims to be for all skin types, and on the tube it says 'total pore solution, optimized pore technology.' Basically it's supposed to be good for reducing pores and controlling oily skin. I don't have these problems severely, but I do find my T-zone becomes a little oily most days. If this also sounds like you, I would definitely look into this cleanser. I've found that it reduced the shininess I got very quickly, but didn't dry out my skin at all. 

I also love the other aspects of this product, the packaging for example is really elegant and convenient. I can't stand it when the shape is weird or you have to scoop out the product yourself. I think the price is very reasonable, and I'll definitely repurchase this product.

I've not used a foaming cleanser before this one, so it was a new experience. It comes out quite thick and that confused me at first! But it doesn't take much to make it turn foamy. First time I used it I really overestimated how much I needed to use, and it was a bit messy hehe. Even what I showed on my hand in the picture is a bit much. 

Thanks for reading everyone, let me know in the comments if you've tried any Laneige products or know of other great cleansers I could try^^
