Son Jung Wan’s collection was a mix of cold arctic blue, rich admirable gold, luxurious mid-tone gray, and traditional graceful Ivory. Inspired by abstract expressionist Mark Rothko’s emotional work, Wan wanted to provoke a bevy of emotions with her latest collection. She incorporated Rothko’s blurred color boundaries with unfinished edges and mixed several materials, colorful furs, and metallic details.
The collection started with a take on winter whites with cream-colored cashmere jackets, jumpsuits, coats, and mesh sleeved dresses presented. The story soon unfolded to showcase Wan’s multi-colored furs, which certainly captivated the crowd. A male model walked in a burgundy wool knit sweater with fox neck warmer and sepia pants to the delight of the editor seated next to me. Wan also added a multi-sequined dress with leather waist detail to her line up. The show concluded with a multi-colored fox fur coat over a silk dress.
