One of Korea's top fashion designers landed Stateside via Capri, Italy to show her collection at NY Fashion Week. Designer Son Jung Wan was inspired by the pretty Italian island for Spring 2012. She brought the blues of the water into palette, and used silk chiffon to represent the fluidity. Shimmering golds, sand and ivory represented the landscape and surrounding caves.
The silhouettes were clean, sexy, flattering. The looks were fashion forward, but not overly trendy. They were young, sophisticated and exactly what many New York women would want to wear. The designer added a few menswear pieces that blended seamlessly into the aesthetic.
