This collection is our favorite from today's shows by a landslide for the fact that it's appropriate for the office or a weekend with friends and that, really, is an important transition. The pumpkin colored blouse with shoulder detail and the slightly lighter, salmon colored trousers (left) had us at hello. A slighter more dressed up look had that same ability for transition, this time it was a mix of textures that kept things interchangeable. Monochromatic, easy to wear separates are endlessly salable if you ask us. One way to balance all of the luxe we're likely to indulge in (between our Halloween costumes, our holiday parties, and our latex leggings) is to keep part of your Fall and Spring shopping reserved for cool, calm clothes like these. Remember, everybody needs something to wear the day after.
Seoul Fashion Week is giving us more of that one-sided hair style we love so much, making us huge, huge fans of theirs. The designer responsible was Vack Yuun Zung who showed clothing with a futuristic/early nineties flavor. Black latex pants might be easy enough for fashionistas to pull off but we're not so sure about white ones, as cool as they looked on the Vack Yuun Zung runway. Overall we're feeling good about all of the unknown (to us, at least) designers showing in various fashion weeks around the world. The truth is, Los Angeles really had us hurting...emotionally speaking. Be sure to check out the gallery below as well as our coverage of Toronto, Mexico, Lakme, and Los Angeles Fashion Weeks.
