SEOUL FASHION WEEK SS16: RUNWAY WRAPUP
Honestly we're still in a daze after covering Hera Seoul Fashion Week live for 8 consecutive days. There's several memory cards jam packed with photographs of models, designers, celebrities and spectators left to sort through. Nevertheless, to wrap-up the runway coverage, MUTZINE's Editor-In-Chief, Gissella, will tell you about a few of her favorite trends!

Big Park's whimsical collection had several oversized tops, which included this assymetrical printed workwear shirt.

BAEMIN x KYE was a collaborative collection.
If you didn't know, BAEMIN is actually a food delivery app...
The collection featured hangul prints and tongue-in-cheek slogans.
It certainly didn't hurt that most of Korea's top models were present too.
The soundtrack tied it all together as DJ Plastic Kid performed some live mixing which opened with XIN SEHA's track "맞닿음".
R.Shemiste derives its name from the word alchemist.
With each collection, designers Won Jiyeon and Lee Suho, attempt to transform ordinary elements into something special.
Their Sukajan jacket revival encapsulates the 'east meets west' concept, via Japanese art, history, and fashion.
Gayeon Lee's Seoul Fashion Week debut collection wasn't like anything else seen or heard this season.
Rich textiles, colors, volumes, and curves...
Details of ruching, knots, and musical oversized beading made the presentation a sublime experience.
The MUTZINE team attended 45 shows. It's all a blur!
But after some reflection, the Heich Es Heich show is still engrained in our mind.
The sharp contrasts, bold stripes, neons, married with sportswear and pop-culture were just so K-pop!
