Kicking off the first day for London Fashion Week A/W15 with delicate prints and tailoring intrigue was Korean designer Eudon Choi. The powerful and feminine collection was threaded together with pops of bold colour and extended silhouettes.
Deep blue blanket scarves, with elongated gleaming white tassels, hung swathed across the shoulders and down along the body whilst sleek flares peeked out beneath, effusing a free-spirited 70s feel. Delicately piecing pink and black Chinese-style prints were used for long tailored jackets and tops paired with silk flares. Simple shiny sleeveless tops were tied around the waist with oriental style loose fitting belts.
Clashing circular and blocky colourful square cut-outs were motifs of the collection, with spheres adorning the bottoms of jackets and peeping out the sides of dresses throughout.
A laid-back worn grey leather jacket with fur trim and circular cut-out pockets stood out, layered over a thin tight-fitting turtle neck and paired with musky blue patterned flares that looked like they had stepped straight out of the film Dazed and Confused; precision checked tweed jackets with large lapels gave a tailored formality and were layered over masculine buttoned-up grey and white shirts.
Long structured silk dresses in blocks of black, golden canary yellow and cerise pink punctuated the collection with billowing structures jutting out across the body, showing off Choi’s understanding of tailoring, creating a shape much like a flower hanging upside down.
Though full of seemingly disparate elements, a hotchpotch of sorts, and lacking coherency, there were gleamings of brilliance in the collection’s simmering iridescence and fantasy silhouettes – Eudon Choi will be one to keep an eye on.
