Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall ’12. Son Jung Wan and Her Floral Engagement

February 11, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Fashion Shows, New York Fashion Week Fall '12

Summary: For her Fall/Winter 2012 collection, Son Jung Wan decided to take more of a light-hearted approach. Though one would think that the collection would have a variety of basic darker colors, Wan brought in a spectrum of vibrant colors.

For her collection, the inspiration came from a gorgeous flower that never dies. The bright colors carried over into the fur blends. This collection played heavily on the mixed textured trends in outwear. Fur or hand crocheted knit sleeves were combined with wool jackets. The trend was even slightly applied to lighter dresses with a one fur shoulder sleeve.

Added detailing like small flower applique and sequins brought enough to the collection to add interest but not overpower the collection as a whole.
