Christina Paik on March Madness


Matt Miggz

Sport and fashion have always been influenced by each other. As the two seem to be more intertwined than ever, performance and ready-to-wear have more in common these days from court to runway to street, in no particular order. Christina Paik shows love for her favorite college basketball team wearing a UConn Kemba Walker Jersey, under her Prada coat, with red pants by Issey Miyake that she paired with Air Max Zero’s and Mykita sunglasses. Here’s her perspective on why she’s a fan of college basketball celebrating March Madness in New York City.
“As a Knicks fan, its been a hard season…let’s face it, it’s been a hard 5 years…and this year, I found myself watching more college basketball than usual. My brother went to UConn and growing up, I always wanted to do everything he did, so naturally I became a UConn fan. I went to an art college and never had the opportunity to experience the landscape of college sports first hand, but being in NYC this spring, it’s been something else. To be able to see such a melting pot of alma maters in such a concentrated city, weekend after weekend, bars packed with fans from all different schools, rooting for their teams as they get that fix of sweet, college nostalgia, I felt like I was getting a tour of the college experience from so many different points of view.
The beauty of college basketball, at least to me, is that team chemistry matters so much. At the professional level, sheer skill can sometimes make up for lack of leadership and teamwork, but in college, where the oldest player is usually no more than 21 years old, the chemistry really matters and I find myself drawn to that.
In an age where people tend to forget about the intangibles, it’s nice to see that it still matters somewhere.”Christina Paik

Who do you sweat?
What do you sweat?
The good & the bad. Excitement & stress.
Where do you sweat?
In the studio and by the Seine.
When do you sweat?
In the mornings to start the day right!
How do you sweat?
Oh bikram definitely gets me hot.
Why do you sweat?
To stay away from my phone and work.
