Want me to sum up the Son Jung Wan Spring 2014 collection for you? WOW! Yep, that pretty much sums it up 😉
I first discovered Korean designer Son Jung Wan last season during New York fashion week. I’d received a surprise invitation to her Fall/Winter 2013 show and was truly taken by the incredible craftmanship, luxurious fabrics, sumptuous play on textures, ingenious detail work and her edgy take on minimalism. I left the show wanting more, so as soon as Fashion Week madness faded away, I proceeded to checking out her Spring 2013 collection. OMG! My jaw dropped at the sight of her fabulously glam ombre gowns and beaded maxi dresses. I was so in love! I knew we had to photograph these magnificent beauties and share them here on theglobalgirl.com. Phillip and I were so inspired by Son Jung Wan’s heavenly gowns that we broke all records on the number of outtakes on this shoot 😉 You can check out our editorial here.
Needless to say, I was awaiting the unveiling of her Spring 2014 collection with much anticipation. And as you can easily tell by the sheer amount of pics I’ve crammed into this post ;), I was beyond blown away by her latest offerings. Hands down, one of my top Fashion Week shows this season (The fabulous clothes! The kickass shoes! The huge teased hair! Pure awesomeness!). And it wasn’t just me, check out the beatific expression on the other front row guest who sat right opposite me in photo number 12 starting from the pic below (a picture is worth a thousand words, as they say ;).
Son Jung Wan’s architectural aesthetic and contrasting play on the laid-back, flowy Morroccan lifestyle (and color palette) with edgy assymmetrical lines, daring cutouts, unfinished hems and splashes of shimmering sequins is pure genius. Her virginal white, body-conscious cutout jumper and deconstructed jackets are to-die-for! And her gorge lemon yellow dresses and peplum skirt and shorts ensembles are a personal favorite. Wait! and those lustworthy sequined numbers… The bomb!
I predict you’ll see me rocking this collection in the not too distant future. Wanna bet?
