SEOUL FASHION WEEK FW17: BLINDNESS
Blindness Fall/Winter 2017 collection review.
Words Cessi Treñas, Media Malaurie Peries, Seoul Fashion Week
Shortlisted for the 2017 LVMH Prize and spotlighted as one of Korea’s most progressive labels, BLINDNESS has been picking up unparalleled speed. PARK JI SUN and SHIN KYU YONG, the designer duo behind the brand, are redefining menswear as we know it by delivering collections that ring electric from one season to the next.
BLINDNESS’s Fall 2017 runway had us seeing a flurry of metallics and embellishments all abound. From KIM CHANIL’s (@i_am_chanil) silver robe and glitter trousers to the pearl-chained separates that punctuated a number of looks, the line-up was built upon a foundation of statement pieces. Crushed velvet pieces and padded jackets worn across the torso offered a study in reimagined layering, while sheer fabrics and NA JAEYOUNG’s (@na___c) cold shoulder button-down made for refreshing peeks of skin.
