Are you looking for outfit inspiration that perfectly balances comfort with style? If yes, streetwear is definitely your go-to option.
It's simple to wear and really comfortable. No wonder leading influencers, celebrities, and the general public can’t get enough of this fashion genre.
However, some might feel that streetwear is a bit too bland, with similar designs. Thus, the stereotypical streetwear attire is just a oversized logo T-shirt and shorts.
That is because you haven't heard about upcoming streetwear brands. They are disrupting the status quo with their creative designs and style!
Today, we will be using the Korean streetwear brand Compagno (CPGN Studio) as an example. Streetwear is no longer just oversized logo T-shirts!

The Meaning behind the CPGN Studio Brand
CPGN Studio is the abbreviation of the Compagno brand.
First things first, where did this upcoming Korean fashion brand get its name from? It doesn't sound Korean at all, doesn't it? Psst, any Italian learners here?
In fact, Compagno is an Italian word for ‘companion’ or ‘partner'. Unsurprisingly, their designs are inspired from our natural environment or daily life.

It is also their mission to create trendy clothing which are not only unisex, but also are suitable for the old and the young.
CPGN Studio’s History- Realizing the Dream Design
CPGN Studio was established in 2015. Within a short span of a few years, it has differentiated itself from the usual streetwear with its unique designs and comfortable fit.
No wonder famed Korean actors, singers, and the general public can’t get enough of this fashion brand!
Perhaps the unique designs is a result of their design cloud sourcing. Anyone can participate as a designer for the brand. In that way, COMPAGNO welcomes aspiring designer students, serving as a stage for opportunities.

What to expect from CPGN Studio’s fashion style?
CPGN Studio offers oversized shirts, hoodies, and T-shirts. While the brand originally focuses on designs for men’s streetwear, you can’t help but notice the love it receives from female trendsetters too. For this reason, it would be fair to call it unisex for all the heartwarming designs loved by all.
A great amount emphasis is placed on styles that stem around all things natural. Whether it’s the solar system, trees, astrology or nature in general- the dynamic designs are a breath of fresh air. Unique and versatile too, you can’t help but admire the diversity across their collections each season.
CPGN Studio also does justice to its creative designs that celebrate animals. Combined with its intricate use of embroidery, it’s alluring to see how the brand instill detailed touches to transform a simple T-shirt.
Color wise, buyers will find an array of hues that pop in more ways than one. Whether it’s subtle shades of brown to bright purple and blues- pick a favorite and allow your outfit to do the talking.
Material wise, it is thicker than usual cotton T-shirts but not too thick as to make you feel uncomfortable on a hot day.
The best thing is their shirts have a drop shoulder fit. Thus, it will give you a nice silhouette and not just a baggy T-shirt dropping down from your shoulders.
Also, emphasis has been placed on the collar material to make sure that it does not become loose easily with washing.
We love how Korean streetstyle brands like this - where one piece is enough to complete your stylish outfit of the day.
