Wooyoungmi presented its Spring Summer 2021 collection on Thursday, July 9th, alongside Paris Fashion Week’s digital outing. The collection expresses the momentum of our time through the medium of dance. A group choreography represents an assembly of diverse individuals motivated by one collaborative purpose.

Garments informed by the premise of dance immerse themselves in the rehearsal ward-robe of the dancer and interprets it for a contemporary urban outlook. Continuing its genderless approach – a shared and versatile proposal – Wooyoungmi applies the soul of dance to a co-ed collection entrenched in the instinctive style of the youth of Seoul. Here, the new generations promote their values of freedom through a self-expression manifested in bold plays on conventional dress codes. Through poised deconstruction, they magnify and elongate traditional sartorial elements, creating a look where movement is key both literally and figuratively. Expressed with grace and elegance, it’s a progressive spirit that lends itself effortlessly to the idea of the dancer’s wardrobe. – from Wooyoungmi
The collection features amplified coats, tailoring and over-shirts, as well as dramatically cut volumes, sculptural denim and its leather interpretations. Buoyant light-weight nylon coats and trousers represent a new generational idea of suiting. Purified dresses double as supersized t-shirts; stretched tank tops double as dresses.
The color palette is inspired by the work of Pina Bausch, featuring shades of subdued pistachio, beiges, sands and blacks of the dancer’s ward-robe, with romantic punches of magenta pink, light blue and mint. Noble floral motifs pay homage to Bausch’s scenography in visual gestures of serenity and hope.
