From Teahouses to Cool-Girl Nail Salons, Iris Law Takes Us Inside Her Weekend In Seoul

And yet, she gleefully tucked into some potato Smiles at the Burberry activation (which includes a weekend-long shoe and hot water bottle pop-up) dressed in a gabardine trench dress and loafer-heels. “I love the collar on that coat,” she says. “And I have the green version of that Knight bag with a fuzzy tail, which I’m obsessed with.” It was a little more adult AND a little more put-together than the clothes Iris gets associated with on social media: dressing herself in Depop-core. “My fashion has become oriented around layering and comfort, which I balance with the need to express myself so that I can still feel creative. I think it means I’m feeling grounded, settled.”

I’m not surprised Iris feels “grounded” given the sheer amount of therapeutic tea she films herself drinking. “And I’m bringing lots of teaware back! The teaware isn’t amazing in England, but I found an amazing salon in Seoul, with amazing craftsmanship,” she says. “We spent hours in Sansuhwa tea. It felt so calm and safe. The owner has been making tea for over 20 years. Just him and his wife. And he’s never sprayed pesticides or fertilizers. It’s super expensive because he only makes 80-90 boxes of green tea a year and it all gets reserved before he’s even finished making it. There’s a real sense of mania about it.”

Below, Iris Law takes us on a tour of her favorite hotspots in Seoul, from nail salons to bookshops and cafés to Burberry’s rose-strewn fantasias.
