Son Jung Wan Fall 2023 At NYFW 

Son Jung Wan FW23

A travel experience through space and time, from night to day, Son Jung Wan gave us an out of this world show. Although very futuristic there is definitely a nod to the 90s, especially with a nostalgic Madonna soundtrack in the background making it a very cliche “fashion show” (cue Sex And The City or The Devil Wears Prada scenes).

However, while the style of the show was a tad typical, the garments proved to be next level. With featured colors of lilac, apricot, galactic cobalt, I loved the organization of the show and how the colors were depicted in all their range of hues and featured in different textures, from feminine satins to bold furs made very playful in unique color ways. I also loved how the textures off set each other, offering styles with both light fabrics, like chiffon paired with the heavier furs, or the satins with the puffer texture.

Overall, all the garments were very high shine be it through the metallic shifts, which were extremely elevated with very multidimensional effects, especially in the blue series, as well as in the sparkled glitter effect on some of the pieces which were stunning and very tasteful. In a few pieces where the sparkle was just embroidered, a little went a long way because it added a pop to the entire look. The overall vibe with the sparkle gave me very “starry nights in space” vibes.

As mentioned, the format of the show shifting from the peach tones into the darker colors felt like how the sun passes through the sky. Then came a series of gray tones, which were seemingly office chic, but with a transition into lilac and the very boxy oversizing, it gave a really sporty edge, and the metallics within this range were very eye-catching as well.

Finally we were brought back to earth from the intergalactic with a collection of white-and-black options, however still very far from basic. Many of the pieces in this range strattled an almost retro silhouette, however with a few cuts, folds and some extra fabric on those puffer looks to modernize it and even bring it into the future.
