MBFW Recap: Son Jung Wan

The wool, fur, cashmere and lambskin fabrics quite clearly denoted the seasonal bent of South Korean designer Son Jung Wan’s AW15 collection. If not the mermaid-like sequins, or the garments’ voluptuous fur extremities, then certainly it was the bold, opulent colour palette that wooed us: striking orange, fuchsia, golden, and deep turquoise dresses, died furs, coats, and sleeves.

The designer sought influence in the 1950s fashion images of American photographer Gordon Parks, which notably depicted women in more  “natural” habitats, in other words external from a staged studio setting, dressed to the nines and flaunting their womanhood through sensuous extensions of the neck or coy gazes toward the camera. The collection, much akin to Parks’ work in its assertion of flamboyant femininity, was as brilliant as its bright, bright hues.
