A futuristic acrobatic and visual presentation opened the eclectic Concept Korea Fall 2014 show yesterday on Feb. 11. With lasers, digital patterns, metallic acrobats and even a singer, this opening seemed like a Cirque Du Soleil act and everyone loved it.
The first designer to open the Main Concept Korea winners was Kaal E.Suktae. The collection started with a bang! Gorgeous immense black hats were the perfect accessory to elevate the outfits to a more formal look. It then transitioned into a monochromatic whisper white look. The disproportionate hat and fringe insert on the jacket, made the model look like the chicest cowgirl ever. If taken apart, every piece of the look would fit perfectly with simple basics.
ChoiBoko was up next in presenting his white coat love story collection. With beautiful thick strokes on lily white coats, the collection seemed to have a Joan Miro essence to it. Some of the looks were the result of colorful works of art turned into stunning structured outerwear.
Beyond Closet offered sleek menswear looks. Plaids and hooded button down shirts broke stereotypical shapes, and the colorful crayon palette made the collection stand out from typical menswear brands. Big Park closed the show with black and white outerwear, a few pops of color, and inserts of neoprene in several pieces.
The last look was a black and fiery red leather and rex fur biker jacket with a black wine glass print neoprene top and a black and fiery red wool leather skirt. It was precise, sharp, and perfect for fall.
Check out what Choi Boko said backstage:
What was the inspiration behind the collection?
Choi Boko: The name of this collection is "Fabricated Memory" and it is about his first love: a white coat. It is about his love story and his memory developed and fabricated. Since humans are not computers, so their memories are fabricated and every season it has been developed in different colors or texture or patterns, so he interpreted his own version of a white coat in this collection to tell the fans his love story.
