Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Earlier this week, against a backdrop and runway illustrating an 86-foot-long drawing by artist Sun K. Kwak, Lie Sangbong debuted his fall/winter 2015 collection
Featuring sophisticated accents of burgundy, camel, navy, and grey, the collection was overwhelmingly rendered in black, white, and a graphic red. Playful peony-inspired prints, both oversized and reduced, were paired with flowing lace Capri pants. Red-hot fur coats were cinched at the waist with thick leather belts that matched detachable knit and fur collars. Double-breasted coats were draped over a variety of knitwear for an asymmetrically tailored silhouette.
“I think women are looking toward minimalism and simplicity, but with playful, veiled contrasts to add uniqueness and individuality,” said Sangbong. That added individuality was found in cropped jackets and sleeveless vests in curly Mongolian lamb and dyed Kalgan fur. Pleated seams were layered over petal-shaped fabrics, and panels, slits, and detachments created eye-catching movement.
Standout coats included the black and white jacquard with leather sleeves, the white gingham print shearling with sequins; the embroidered cheery blossom motifs and black lacquered basket weave wool with pony hair.
Lie Sangbong offered utility, elegance, and distinction in every look.
