NYFW Report: Son Jung Wan A/W 2011 Presentation

The presentation at Son Jung Wan this weekend was thematically seamless with many recurring elements, particularly in the use of fur detailed shoulders and a consistent contrast of textures.

Nearly all of the pieces in the collection were made of at least two different textiles. Wan mixed together, with an obvious clarity of inspiration, everything from cabled wool with chiffon, to bejeweled rabbit fur with dyed tweed, to silk with mink, all of which created eye-catching contrasting looks.

Softer silhouettes could not help but reign with the girlish fluffy mink and rabbit fur shoulders, cut in sometimes mini-cape ways.

There was a quiet simplicity to the otherwise incredibly luxe collection. Models wore their hair in high teased braids with soft feminine make-up and had a Bambi-eyed quality, giving this fall collection a lighter look than usual.

Large floral prints on long flowing high to low dresses were made more autumnal with suede band tops that were notably beautiful in movement.

Wan continued with the fur theme and presented several fur coats. An ingenious bright hunter green was one notable fur coat seen on Wan’s runway.

As long as you’re not a PETA fanatic, this collection should do nothing other than warm your shoulders and perhaps your heart.
