Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Jang Hyeong Cheol debuted his spring/summer 2016 collection for the Concept Korea showing yesterday during New York Men’s Fashion Week. The looks mixed the “at-leisure” trend with a classical way of formal dressing. The designer used silk and rich shades of red and blue to create a feeling of elegance, while playing with untraditional tailoring to achieve a casual overall look. Many of the suits, most of which were pinstriped, had variations to the common fit. Crisp blazers or longer robes were matched with shorts that hit mid-thigh and chunky, sporty sandals. The Korean designer also showed an interesting version of tailoring for his pants.
Many of the garments had hems down the side that introduced a hidden panel of a colored fabric. As the models moved, the color panel became visible and tricked the eye into giving them movement, even though it was the result of even more structure. The collection followed the line’s main theme, which is to break the divide between “trendy” sporty dressing and formalwear, seeking elegance in all aspects of dressing.
