POST ARCHIVE FACTION (PAF)
POST ARCHIVE FACTION (PAF) is a label started by Dongjoon Lim and Sookyo Jeong in 2018. The label views itself as more of a collective than a brand and focuses to create new structures and patterns through the evolution of archives. The designs are created through the meticulous study of garments and how they have changed over time. PAF looks into the evolutionary process of other art forms as well, including architecture, multi media art and nature to see what elements can be extracted and used to create new, technical garments. Recognized for its artistic direction and creative integrity, PAF was shortlisted for the 2021 LVMH Prize. As the label continues to evolve, it looks into its own archive and reimagines older pieces under a new, evolutionary light.
