Mo Jain Song is a hidden gem at the end of an Itaewon alley. Parsons-trained designer Jain Song launched her first collection in 2004 with the philosophy of “city meets nature.” Her modern designs do not use leather or fur, focusing instead on the pursuit of “perfect tailoring.” The first floor houses her collection, while the second floor features a café and a select shop of small delights curated from around the world. They range from the fanciful (tiny metal sea creature magnets) to the eminently practical (7.5” Gingher pinking shears), with a large selection of high-quality gardening tools. In fact, inspired by her father, gardening has been a lifelong hobby of Jain Song’s: plants fill the space. Just opposite the café is a glass-covered terrace with small fruit trees, potted cacti and brightly colored seating. In nice weather, take your drinks to the rooftop garden for views of the city.
