Seoul Fashion Week: This Is Your New Party Wardrobe

And it’s prints, skin and shine galore!


If you’re looking for some party-ready pieces, look no further than Korean labels Nohke and J Koo’s Fall/Winter 2016 collections.

At Nohke, designer Chung Mi Seon struck the perfect balance between movement and structure, mixing tough materials like pleather with soft knits, and utilising drapes and flare detailing. The collection was definitely a celebration of the female figure as well, with its corset belts, strategic cut-outs and slim form-fitting silhouettes.

The line was mostly made up of greys, blacks, whites and olives, which served as a perfect set-up for a pair of dazzling gold pants to steal the limelight. Reminiscent of the ’80s disco-era, these are pants made for dancing.

Six year-old label J Koo was equally fun to watch. One of the highlights was of course, seeing model and fashion It girl Irene Kim walk the runway for the label. However, the highly-anticipated collection was in no way overshadowed by Kim’s popularity.

Designers Choi Jin Woo and Koo Yeon Joo stayed true to the signature J Koo aesthetic of sleek separates inspired by men’s tailoring. For the coming season, the duo added a touch of dark romanticism in the form of sombre floral prints and shiny velvet fabrications. They were see on off-shoulder dresses, jackets and shirts that brought to mind the Victorian era, albeit much more modern.
