Son Jung Wan’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection demonstrated conventionally masculine structured styles combined with conventionally feminine delicate sleeves. This consisted of highly structured dresses and jumpsuits with stiff collars, and a combination of contrasting fabrics such as latex and lace.
Wan’s collection certainly was attention grabbing with the use of bold colours such as turquoise, teal blue, and fuchsia pink, along with more subdued shades of taupe, white and cream. Interestingly, the menswear versions of each design also demonstrated a combination of conventional feminine and masculine styles. Overall, this collection could be considered as genderless and suggests that fashion is shifting towards less gendered styles. This was also displayed in the hair and makeup, with intentionally messy ponytails and bold blue glitter eyeliner, contrasted with natural skin and nude lip colours. On the whole, Son Jung Wan has created yet another unique and incredibly innovative collection.
