Uplifting, fresh, and opulent, the Son Jung Wan FW15 collection which was successfully presented during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center, NYC, made a lasting impression and further enhanced the desirability the brand.

Inspired by the romantic MGM films of the 1950’s and the fashion photography of Gordon Parks the designer presented a collection best described as retro-meets-modern; chock-full of glamour with a touch of romance.

Fabrics consisted of merino wool and handcrafted knits in unusual color combinations. Lively metallics, leather and multi-colored furs brought forth the relaxed yet chic mood of the era.

Standouts included wool coats in vibrant orange, adorned with either a fox fur collar, lamb fur details or beaver fur sleeves. Turquoise gaucho pants and voluminous skirts gave way to the finale look, a mint green, sequined cocktail dress, which references the effortless evening look of the fifties.

The whole collection was filled with sophisticated show-stoppers that could be worn day-to-night as well as clearly defined evening pieces.

Outwear was eye-catching in terms of both color and silhouette, and the mix & match of different textures, materials and techniques added to the playful mood; a notable deviation from the designer’s subtler and quieter previous works! This show was seriously strong and energizing!

Love!!!
