Next up in our New York Fashion Week adventures: Korea-born designer Son Jung Wan, who has quickly become a critic favorite. And witnessing today's show, it's easy to see why. Prior to today's runway show, Wan stated, “This season I was inspired by Morocco and the romantic, picturesque sun-drenched Sahara Desert. It is such a mysterious place where you can wander, get lost and find peace and beauty.”
When the Son Jung Wan spring 2014 collection runway show opened with a crisp white jumpsuit with sexy side cutouts, it seemed that everyone in the audience whipped out their cameras. The show continued with structured white and yellow pieces, silky cream and tan dresses and tops, and breezy menswear-inspired looks. The models' hair was slicked back into ponytails with fierce volume, mirroring the effortless style of the clothes. Each look had such unique details—thin mesh cutouts, panels of basket weaving, asymmetrical hems, and, towards the end, dresses covered in chunky gold and peach glitter lit up the runway. The mix of fabrics, cuts, colors, and prints definitely got us excited for the spring 2014 season!
