Suit Supply was one of my most fave presentations for NYFW:Men. It was a great showcase of the F/W 2016 collection, lots of great suit options for the modern man. It would take him from straight off the rack to a well-dressed, modernly fashionable man.
CONCEPT KOREA — DBYD (by Dong-jun Kang)
Concept Korea is a global project that publicizes Korea’s fashion culture throughout the world and supports domestic designer brands make in-roads into overseas markets. This year’s 2 showcases were presented by Korea Creative Content Agency & the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports, & Tourism.
This F/W16 collection — I’m Yours and I’m not yours. The concept behind the collection was from the film “Her” by Spike Jonze. Whenever the main actor’s emotion changed, the color of the cinematography would change as well, depending on the mood. The two key words of this film contrast with the colors are “owning” and “being”. It makes one think psychologically, owning the assurance of being, or being as its complete measure of his existence.
The color palette is sand beige, melange gray, cool gray, burgundy, red, black, and white.
CONCEPT KOREA — ORDINARY PEOPLE (by Hyeong-cheol Jang)
Entitled “Hotel People”, there are always rest points/commas in musics and writings, and with this brand, they also believe that we need rest points in our lives to make it more valuable and bounce back to reality, which one usually calls it a holiday. In the background of a perfect holiday, one spots that there are people who are off for a holiday and people who chase for a holiday.
Ordinary People brings the story of a hotel where people stay for holiday. With the theme of Ordinary People’s hotel, we not only go thru the bright sides, the shoppers, and the limousines, but also every little element that makes people’s holiday perfect. With this collection, Ordinary People are proud to show every moment happening in the hotel with their own Ordinary style.
Designer Bumsuk Choi presented a lineup that managed to remain playful while still maintaining the minimal tone that is a hallmark of the brand. The collection included modern elements such as oversize coats with exaggerated patch pockets in monochromatic tones, color-blocking on outerwear in bomber and leather moto jacket styles and various zipper treatments on sleeves.
The outerwear pieces here were truly phenomenal, so mind-blowing!
