Rejina Pyo Spring 2018: London Fashion Week

We Are Family: Rejina Pyo London Fashion Week SS18

The SS18 collection from Rejina Pyo at London Fashion Week was a celebration of diversity and sisterhood. Choosing an open-cast call, the models represented a range of ages and backgrounds. The clothing was beautifully relaxed in the drape while the shine of the fabric and colour pallet added opulence.

Held at the Friends House in Euston, the audience gathered in a gymnasium-cum-arena theatre, where four triangle mirrors laid on the floor in a square. As the models came into the centre the flashes of the cameras bounced from the the clothes to the mirrored floor and back again – creating a Hollywood red carpet elegance.

The silhouettes were designed to drift down the body, hanging loosely of the shoulders and gracefully touching the body in a laissez faire fashion. The colour tone was warm and romantic – opting for silvers, golds, tangerine and natural browns.

Inspiration came from Nicholas Nixon’s photographic series “Forty Years of the Brown Sisters” which explored age and female relationships. From these images Pyo wanted to recreate the softness of the women and the bond that women share.

Pyo’s passion of sculpture is represented in the footwear, the curved lines of the mule heels echoed the lines in the frill detailing of the dresses. The jewellery was a collaboration with London based designer Anissa Kermiche, gold earrings in abstract shapes were embellished with pearls. To complement the Hollywood glamour of the collection, Pyo once again collaborated with Korean Eyewear brand Projekt Produkt to produce feminine cat eye sunglasses.

This collection is a display of womanhood and the importance of female ties, taking a beautifully relaxed approach to decadence.
