Re;code is a Korean brand specializing in upcycled fashion. Launched in March of 2012, they started from a place of consideration for the environment, and the realization that dead stock fabric and garments from major brands, including that of their own umbrella corporation, was being incinerated to protect brand integrity.
Creating something new from waste to create value, re;code is challenging the mainstream industry by reinterpreting design, and giving back to the environment. Working with independent designers hoping to enter the market, the collection gives them a platform for exposure to gain a foothold in the market place through collaborative design and inclusion in Re;code’s collection. Designer collaborations have included renowned UK upcycling brand Junky Styling, Andee Kang, Jaewoong Jeong, ByungMun Seo.
