BEYOND CLOSET by Taeyong Ko
The concept behind Beyond Closet’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection is “New Orange Boy,” which is a Korean term that was used to describe the excessive consumption of wealthy offspring in Gangham (Seoul’s most lavish neighborhood) in the 1990’s. This generation was notorious for their debaucherous ways and exorbitant purchases of luxury goods and vehicles. Beyond Closet reinvents this notion, contrary to the old “Orange Boy,” “New Orange Boy” represents the new generation of youth independent of family riches who strive to live their own lives.
LEYII by Seunghee Lee
LEYII’s Fall/Winter 2015 concept is “Pur-Ensemble,” which combines the word ‘Pur’ meaning pure and ‘Ensemble’ meaning to be in harmony. LEYII’s pieces are an expression of her balance of construction, detail and fabric. Her Fall/Winter collection showcases LEYII’s contemporary and minimal sensibilities.
RESURRECTION by Juyoung Lee
Resurrection’s “New Post Punk” Fall/Winter 2015 collection emulates the designers’ unconventional sensibility. Resurrection makes a bold statement with her exquisite tailoring and juxtaposition of materials such as leather, fur, high-tech fabric and gold and black color blocking.
