A Minute With A Model

More Than Just A Model: Meet Sohyun Jung

Sohyun Jung may be a runway favorite, but her cool-girl street style between shows garners equally as much attention. The Korean 22-year-old has mastered a distinctive look thanks to her tomboy, mix-and-match aesthetic, love of layering and signature pixie crop. We caught up with Sohyun, one of the faces of our Holiday 2018 campaign for MICHAEL Michael Kors, to talk go-to pieces and style secrets.
