Lie Sangbong Gets Cozy

By Eliza Jordan

February 22, 2016

Last week, Lie Sangbong held its fall/winter 2016 fashion show at Pier 59 Studios, and colorful garments graced the stark white runway one piece at a time. Generally known for his architectural collections, the Korean designer is focused on enhancing the natural form of the body through innovative techniques and traditional influences.

Retro military garments and lavish Victorian vestments were the collection’s inspiration. Signature Sangbong prints were traded in for luxurious textures, such as lace-adorned velvet and silk, and monochromatic fox fur jackets. Delicate silk blouses had voluminous sleeves, and many of the coats were seen with brass military buttons, leather trim, embroidery, and other hand-woven details. Velvet was a main character in the collection, flashing by in washes of fuchsia and emerald green, reworked to exude a lustered, patterned effect. We also saw an eye-full of fur collars and lapels worn over many coats and jackets, as long belts hung slack to the floor.

Our favorite look of the collection was an interesting one: a men’s blazer reworked into a sash-like shoulder bag. The new fanny pack is in—and it will most likely be seen on the shoulder beginning in September.
