Sung Kim started as a pattern designer for brands such as Ermenegildo Zegna and Valentino, and he developed understanding and experience of patterns through fine Italian Workmanship. Later, he worked as a buyer of multi-brand boutiques, he have learnt how to identify retail and consumer's needs and after he launched his brand named 'Dell'Est'. Still to this day, he is participating directly on the design, pattern and production process of all his collections.
DELL’EST of designer Sung Kim, who has engineering background, pursues the restrained luxurious erotismo mood. It is inspired by the architecture details, such as bolt, steel beam and joints, and Italian style that uses primary colors naturally. The passion, spending most of time on drawing the patterns and cutting the premium leathers, strives for the delicate and luxurious high-end style. It is a provocative woman rather than a cute woman, a woman who is confident enough to express her own color, not bravado, as a muse. He uses materials that have a sense of boldness, such as leather, zipper and other hardware. They express intense rock-n-roll moods and delicate fetish sensibilities.
