I often struggle to describe a Son Jung Wan collection. Many different words come to mind each season, and trying to describe the Spring 2018 collection is no different. Colorful, embellished, structured, embroidered, ethereal, complicated. And that’s precisely the problem. Inasmuch as I always look for a common theme, the wide variety of styles and structures alway throw me off.
The Spring 20187 show started with a vibrant set of turquoise ensembles covered in floral motifs, including the third look of a low-cut ballgown adorned with a turquoise underskirt. It was followed by the same pattern of a men’s getup that felt a little overly done and costume-y. Things picked up once the more muted, neutral colored clothes started popping on the runway: a cream and ivory patterned dress with white hooded silk jacket embellished by a beaded flower, and a spectacular bronze embellished romper with navy waist detail.
But perhaps the best piece out of the entire collection was the white hooded duster jacket adorned with flowers and beads and paired with cream and ivory patterned dress. Very editorial and very, very pretty.
