Son Jung Wan SS17 NYFW
Exploration of the ’70s — with all its wild color combinations and blending of drab and fab — is hardly a new theme in recent seasons. But — as we’ve seen in some notable flops that capture the worst of the era, rather than its promise as a reinvention — it takes a talent to do it well.
Son Jung Wan’s SS17 collection makes it work more often than not, with flared silhouettes and fun combinations that take us to the Studio 54 dance floor by way of sequins (which we expect) but also flowered appliques, candy stripes, and even houndstooth.
