Son Jung Wan, who presented her Spring/Summer 2015 collection in The Pavilion at Lincoln Center for New York Fashion Week, was inspired by the concept of yin and yang and the idea that contrasting elements do not conflict, but exist in harmony.
Blues of the Danube River, jungle green, deep purple and cool mint give a fresh feeling and stand out against chalk white and tan neutrals. Metallic threads and sequins bring to mind the glint of the sun, and add unique detailing to each look. Many tangible dualities arise when rough-textured fabrics like hemp are made into sinuous silhouettes. Shapes are soft and feminine in washed linen and sheer silk.
Stand-outs included a berry-colored jumpsuit, emerald green dress, gold sequined romper and men’s white leather jacket and shorts with silver detailing.
Those in attendance included actresses Kelly Rutherford, The Real Housewives of New York City’s Kelly Bensimon, Edy Ganem of TV’s Devious Maids, Toni Trucks of TNT’s Franklin & Bash, Nico Tortorella of Fox’s The Following; models Beverly Johnson, Brian Shimansky, Alex Lundqvist, Dan Murphy, Bella Hadid and Garrett Neff; as well as Miss USA 2012 Nana Meriwether.
