Daul Kim

Exactly three years ago this day, Daul Kim (20 years old) was found dead in her apartment. Suicide, they said. I, myself, had only discovered her blog a couple days before her death and was quite shocked. Having heard that, I went back and read the entire blog. Then it didn’t seem so sudden after all.  

There was a lot of speculation and grey area around her death. Many thought that since she was so high up in her career as a model, she was afraid she would fall. Another theory was that she was already self-harming herself (the name of her blog was I like to fork myself), and just couldn’t take it anymore.

Whatever the reason, Daul Kim remains as one of my five most favourite / influential people. I can relate, from her taste in minimal trance, to her love of Chrome Hearts. In any case, I thought it was only fitting to share some of the incredible works she has done. Daul, may you rest in peace.
