2015-2016 Fall/Winter Trends from Seoul Fashion Week
The runways of Seoul Fashion Week revealed upcoming trends for autumn and winter that combined an exciting mixture of the past and the future. From 70’s retro to modern graphic prints, we’ve gathered a list of what we noticed on the runways from Monday’s shows by Korean designers pushBUTTON, ti:baeg, BIG PARK, and Steve J & Yonie P.
Designed by Park Seung Gun, the concept of pushBUTTON’s 2015 F/W collection was inspired by the designer’s refreshing interpretation of the past. We saw a stylish return of the houndstooth pattern coming in different colors and sizes, black and white paired with a bold colors (gold, blue, yellow, pink), bold stripes, transparent ruffled layers, oversized tailoring and puffy sleeves, turtlenecks, wider pants, 60’s-70’s retro hair and platform shoes.
Designer Cho Eun Ae of ti:baeg made the title of her 2015 F/W collection “Fly to the moon – In other words.” We saw a sophisticated mix of pastel colors and graphic elements, black and white textile patterns, floral prints, reefer coats that boast beautiful pleat detailing in the back, and oversized tailoring and pockets. The hairstyle used was a sleek, low ponytail. Get the look here.
Designer Park Youn Soo’s 2015 F/W concept was inspired by Jean de La Fontaine’s 1669 fiction, Loves of Psyche and Cupid, and took a modern perspective on architectural elements of European Catholic churches in the Middle Ages. The collection boasts beautiful silhouette dresses with dip hems, a mixture of classic and modern with graphic details reminiscent of stained glass windows and edgy leather sleeves, stylistic slits in coats and long dresses, pleat detailing in the back of coats, and sophisticated color blocking that pairs black and cream with bold colors (yellow, blue, gray, green, pink).
Steve J & Yonie P
The 2015 F/W collection by Steve J and Yonie P shows laboratory items including the beaker, magnifier and eyedropper in a soft and witty way and combines print and funny phrases that cheer people up. We saw a fun mixture of fun, groovy prints, skirts over pants, midi hems, high waist culottes, sheer layers, slits in sweaters and skirts, asymmetrical hemlines, oversized coats, pink, white, denim, ruffled silk maxi dresses, and of course, nerdy glasses and surgical masks.
