I first wrote about Korean-born designer Rejina Pyo for The Pack a year ago when I covered all of the incredible design talent coming out of South Korea. Contemporary Korean style tends to be more influenced by classic minimalism and, in recent years, athletic wear. Clothes usually feature structured silhouettes with very few frills in easy-to-wear shades. Although this appeals to the minimalist in me, it’s also acceptable to try new things every once in a while. Variety is the spice of life, etc.
It’s with this in mind that I practically drooled over Rejina Pyo’s brand new lookbook for the upcoming autumn winter collection. Muted shades of navy and black and brown are splashed with mustard and neon yellow and green. Silhouettes are simple but the mostly-column shapes lengthen and flatter the body. Patterns are kept to a minimum but executed thoughtfully. My absolutely favourite piece is the crushed velvet dress in navy. It’s alluring and feminine, and yet it also reminds me of dresses I wore to piano recitals when I was a little girl.
