SCHOOL RUINED MY LIFE: Hyein Seo’s BAD EDUCATION at Antwerp’s Royal Academy

BAD EDUCATION is young designer HYEIN SEO’s latest collection, emphasizing youth, the afflictions of school, and invisible skateboards. Together with photographer NICOLE MARIA WINKLER and stylist John Colver, Seo premieres the collection—her final work at Antwerp’s Royal Academy—on 032c, accompanied by a video by Gemma Yin Taylor. Combining sexed-up Weltschmerz with recreational alienation and pop bricolage, the story follows the team’s angsty editorial shot on Staten Island’s South Beach this past spring.
