As it has been about a week since Seoul Fashion Week has concluded, I still have a couple more pieces to write about from the event. If you haven’t checked out the Seoul Fashion Week: Show’s Recap . You should definitely check that as well, for some minor show summaries, tips, and general knowledge for Seoul Fashion Week. Anyways, moving on from a recommendation you may, or may not take… lets get into the show favorites, YCH’s collection.
First off, I really have to say that I enjoyed YCH‘s collection. Specifically to add that it was a womenswear collection with some menswear pieces as well. And for those who know me, I am an avid lover of menswear. If you saw the show live, right away a lot of the garment’s silhouettes were very business attire inspired. Oversized sleeves, with large asian styled obi belts, and pencil skirts that ran below the knee. Even though many of the pieces were formal, there were also a couple pieces that projected the word “Glamour,” on it with that Varsity sportswear font. I have noticed that Korean designers like to add an element of sportswear to their collections.
There were skirts layered over pants, with pin stripe patterns. Yoon Choon Ho also did not avoid using multiple textiles. YCH’s concept didn’t specifically revolve just around business wear though, as the collection continued, there was a transition from business to evening glamour and elegance incorporated. with mesh and lace detailing. There was also a couple beautiful satin dresses with stacks of pleating on the skirt line. Plunging necklines on evening wear dresses with gigot sleeves and high collars. Some of the garments seemed to be inspired by the victorian era.
There is not too much more to say about the collection itself. There were many mixed influences that came to inspire the collection apparently. When business attire escalated to form evening wear is where the modernized asian influence transitioned to a romantic victorian style.
The review is also just speculation from my own experience, but if you were inspired in a different way seeing a different aesthetic If you have not checked out the collection yet definitely give it a look!
