The S/S 2014 Seoul Fashion Week (SFW), from 18-24 Oct, ended last week after a week-long showcase of over 60 shows by leading Korean designers and up-and-coming ones presenting both their menswear and women's collection.
The final night of Men's Fashion Week 2012 ended with a spectacular show by German luxury brand, MODE CREATION MUNICH (MCM), as they showcased its full AW12/13 collection with 80 looks in three show segments with a the themed “Munich Wildlife.
Following Alexis Mabille’s show on MFW was Casely-Hayford’s Autumn/Winter 12 collection featuring stylish, street inspired looks with a bold solid colours. Little do we know that the show almost could not happen because the clothes was initialy shipped to Italy by mistake and had only arrived on the day itself. Phew.
Titled ‘Into The Woods’, it's inspired by the outdoors, camping in the woods and mountain climbing. But what I am amazed is how he took this theme and gave it a very urban twist , much like the urban jungle of New York City - of course I just came back from NYC and I can see how the collection totally fits the environment and it's severe winter.
Hailing from United Kingdom, Matthew Miller kicked off the last segment with his colourful show stopping collection, which featured amazing prints, bright and bold colours; even the bags were a hit with the audience giving Matthew Miller a rousing round of applause during the final walk. I really love the graffiti printed suit the most.
French Couturier, Alexis Mabille, kicked off the second segment of MFW on Day 4. Showcasing his menswear line intertwined with his capsule collection for HOM Underwear. It's opulence meets lean topless sculpted bodies. The models' hot bod aside, it's the intrigue detailing and precise tailoring of the suits and outfit that really rock (pun intended) the show.
The second show on Day 4 of MFW is by Bodybound. The brand explored uniforms as symbols of conformity. Sportswear meets space age as the mix of gauze like techno fabrics and bulbous articulated joints are the focus of the collection, which draws upon Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”.
