Don’t Like Fur? Don’t Read This … Son Jung Wan MB Fashion Week Fall 2012
Son Jung Wan serves up red carpet gowns and avant-garde fashion for day.
It’s interesting watching a designer’s show season after season. You can see changes in mood, tailoring, style and point of view. The very first Son Jung Wan show I saw was filled with knitwear. Her latest show utilized more fabrications and was filled with beautiful details like thin, delicate tassels on zippers, asymmetrical cuts and appliquéd small flowers on the sides of gowns.
Fall, for Son Jung Wan, isn’t for the meek. Bold cinnamon dresses, turquoise threads woven into an earthy-toned cropped tweed jacket, a green striped fox fur jacket, deep violet skirts, pale mink epaulettes on a cream leather jacket. Sinuous emerald green red carpet gowns vied with blue goddess gowns for attention.
The show was an explosion of color and luxurious fabrics ranging from silk, alpaca, and chiffon to leather, raccoon, and mink. Yes — fur played a bit part of the show, as either a hem on a garment, a coat lined in fur or as an accent. Shoes were detailed with either a cable knit wool or fur strip on the top.
Son Jung Wan seems to be saying, “Go big or go home.” And I like the idea of standing out in the crowd, in a very good way of course.
To get a bit of the flavor of the show, watch the runway highlights.
