In summer 2016, KORELIMITED received a chance to collaborate with Lia Kim and her brand “GΔCHI.” The KORE X GΔCHI collaboration is the first of its kind, dropping new jacket, shirt, hat, and jogger designs in one release. Lia's brand GACHI is the romanization for the Korean word 가치, meaning “value.” Coincidentally, Gachi is the same phonetically as the word 같이 or "together." The brand dedicates itself in reminding society the importance of value and worthiness in everyday life. GΔCHI is not just a brand, but an idea and a movement that can positively be incorporated to anything to push forth value and fellowship. KORELIMITED has chosen this fantastic collaboration with Lia Kim in order to celebrate the importance of value and worthiness for culture, fashion, and the arts.
