Son Jung Wan presented her spring and summer 2018 line at New York Fashion Week’s Gallery 3 Saturday afternoon. A turquoise hue joined a floral theme to cascade along the room and jumpstart the show. A sea of all white washed out this trend as more looks began to come onstage. More white dresses and jumpsuits strolled out and soon the floral trend blossomed again. Hot pink roses appeared on white mesh capes, a clear focal point to the collection.
Models dressed in all white began to come down the runway in clothing tailored with elegant lace fabric. Son Jung Wan’s new collection contained many layered skirts, pointed collars, and plunging necklines. Mesh posed as a look in this show as well, coming in the form of capes, shawls, and the under layer to some skirts. Each model strutted the runway wearing silver, tasseled shoes. Male models also presented these shoes with a more masculine tank and pants look to coincide.
The use of focal point with the roses sewn into fabric and silver shoes reflecting against white fabric shed light on Son Jung Wan’s 2018 theme.
The staple in this show was the gray-blue open hooded cardigan that came covered in different flowers of pink and yellow color. Sequins adorned this item and lead way into the grand finale. Mermaidesque dresses shimmered out, adorned in turquoise and pink sequins. The color scheme at the end brought Wan’s latest collection full circle by reinforcing the same colors from the beginning in a new light.
