Summary: Being classic and lady-like is a look that many designers don’t tend to lean towards these days, which is exactly why Son Jung Wan’s Fall 2013 RTW collection was such a refreshing treat to witness.
Picture this: the classic, feminine styles of the Golden Age of Hollywood brought to modern times with appropriate fur accents, innovative fabrics, and an eye-catching use of color. Hem lines were long, some hitting well past the knee. But contrast these long, flowing skirts with strong, structured jackets and tops, and you get the perfect balance of modern versus classic.
Son Jung Wan didn’t stick to frocks however. She also displayed a colorful array of slim tailored slacks, which would have been a bore had they not been paired with colorful tweed blazers and fur chubbies. Perhaps the most impressive collaboration that was spotted on the runway was a classic blue tweed coat with white, shaggy fur sleeves. A crazy combination that Jung Wan managed to make work.
In all, this retro glam collection is ideal for any modern day lady. Its classic silhouettes and tasty designs make it the perfect choice for one strolling down Fifth Avenue, or for those ladies who lunch.
