Hanboks for everyday use – gorgeous!

“Loving our own clothes will enhance foreigners’ perception of us. They will see us as people that respect their own culture.”

– hanbok designer Kim Namhee

Personally, I believe most people would say that Koreans do respect their own culture. I mean, that’s what I always thought about the country and its people, but it’s certainly true that when one is young, one tends to be less attached to the traditional ways.

All that, however, is just a prelude to show the amazingly beautiful hanbok below. It’s an outfit designed for everyday wear, so it is more practical than the ones worn on formal occasions, but not a bit less gorgeous, in my opinion.
