If Part 1 of Korean Streetwear Brands wasn’t enough, time to set your eyes on Part 2 – another list of notable Korean brands that are worth taking a look at. Some brands you might find familiar and some might be in need of some heavy research and eye-shopping. But overall, they are brands that won’t disappoint and will definitely enhance your streetwear game. Check out the second part of our list below!

Shown at NYFW and represented at VFILES, KYE is Kathleen Kye’s first brand before EYE EYE. With eclectic prints and fabrics juxtaposed with Kathleen’s unique silhouettes, it’s hard not to stand out in the crowd when wearing one of her pieces. Collaborations with Shu Umera, Skechers, and Gentle Monster are just a few of the many that have elevated the brand’s recognition internationally.
The name LovLov makes more sense when spoken in Korean – it’s a very cute way of saying what the brand is most known for: robes! Starting out with selling beach robes and patterned dresses, the brand has expanded their line of apparel which is both relaxed and elegant for the contemporary woman.
Mahagrid is a combination of two words: “Maha,” which is Indonesian for “greatness,” and “grid,” which signifies a checkered pattern. By putting the two together the name represents “the great milestone.” This brand has a great collection of solid outerwear, graphic tees with reminiscent of NASCAR, and accessories that local celebrities are loving.
Ever since Nohant’s famous Love City t-shirts and pullovers which replaced vowels in the names of famous cities with Korean characters – and the LOVELY/LONELY graphic tee – the brand became increasingly popular both locally and internationally. Nohant provides basics and graphic tees that are simple and comfortable.
Noycommon is a unisex casual brand that is still under the radar but slowly making its way into the spotlight. Their signature styles are accompanied with lettering and graphics that tell the story of each season’s collection.
Looking for fun and kitschy, school girl (or guy) vibes? You’re at the right place. Already gaining international attraction within a few years, O!Oi gives fashionistas a chance to express themselves with vintage varsity-inspired pieces that are perfect for the coming fall.
Loved by both local and international celebrities and influencers, Push Button is one of those brands with a quirky vibe but still very loveable at the same time. Exaggerated silhouettes and unexpected prints and patterns keep heads turning – they even caught the attention of Kyle Anderson, Market & Accessories Director of Marie Claire, as he posted himself wearing the brand’s Crying Baby Jumper.
Rocket x Lunch is a shout out to British grunge style but with a cute Korean twist. This brand displays cheeky designs and surpasses common expectations.
If you are a follower of K-fashion and K-streetstyle, it’s hard to miss this brand’s name. Heavily focusing on Denim, SJYP aims to be the contemporary forefront for Korean denim design and is carried by internationally renowned stockists like Opening Ceremony, SSENSE, and Net-a-Porter.

As cool as its name, Stereo Vinyls offers basic streetwear apparel with a whimsical twist, especially because of their on-point collaborations. The brand has made collaborative pieces with Pink Panther, Hello Kitty, Chimodu, and Nou Nou, allowing these characters to seamlessly integrate into the streetwear world.
