For the past several seasons Concept Korea has brought South Korea’s fashion designers to the world stage at New York City. The designers at this season’s collection include Juyong Lee of Resurrection, Seunghee Lee of Leyii, Taeyong Ko of Beyond Closet. Each designer was eminently qualified to show their wares at the venue. Seunghee Lee’s Leyii collection was immediately accessible because of the square construction and straight lines; the crux of the designer’s collection was outerwear, cashmere, singular color pieces. Again, for a South Korean designer this proved immediately recognizable to a heavily American audience. Juyong Lee offered a varied but worthy collection of menswear. Where the designer excelled was specifically in darker colors, and his usage of fur. One stronger piece in particular consisted of a fur and leather mix coat in a rich detailed black. He veered off the rails slightly with a quasi leisure suit, but he was way more adept at showing off his qualities in leather. Taeyong Ko of Beyond Closet offered a varied mix of menswear pieces with multi-colored prints extensive iconwork and very colorful pants, his alpaca-esque coat was a highlight in particular because of the rich plaid detailing on the inner end. Overall the designers of Concept Korea showed their mettle and is a welcomed change of pace during the season.
