In an interview with Haps, French stylist Charlie le Mindu of Lady Gaga, human hair clothing and nude runway hat model fame, was less than smitten with the fashion he saw on the streets of Korea during a brief visit in April.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that Korean fashion made much of an impression on the designer when he visited the peninsula for the first time. He surmised that it was perhaps “jet lag” or not being in the right part of town.
According to le Mindu he saw, “all the iconic Korean things: temples, towers, weird food, crane-lobster games. But if Korean fashion is what I saw, I will call it non-existing.”
He does, however, share the ROK’s love of plastic surgery:
“I’m a huge fan of plastic surgery! I do remember seeing some beauty salon [in Korea] where they do human placenta injection to look younger. It’s pretty amazing and intense.”

As for me, I am a blue jeans, t-shirt, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” kinda guy myself. I wouldn’t know good fashion from bad, but the MH demographic is no doubt full of fashion connoisseurs who can address Charlie’s claim.
