Concept Korea and New York Fashion Week stay committed to promoting promising Korean designers globally. This season brands WNDERKAMMER, ul:kin, and JARRET presented their Spring Summer 2021 collection as part of Concept Korea project.
Discover looks from emerging Korean designers’ collections presented during this season’s New York Fashion Week below:
“The inception of the SS21 collection started with the Bauhaus Masters’ Houses in Dessau, Germany. The color palette for the collection was largely inspired by the colors that are synonymous with the iconic Bauhaus designs, pieces are laden with hues of gray, beige, and red. In that same vein, inspiration was taken from industrial architects and designers such as Joe Colombo, Florence Knoll, and Le Corbusier. The collection aims to express new beauty with minimal composition, using vegan leather and organic linen. The silhouette of the dresses and pant suit sets are feminine in muted and easy ways.” – from Wnderkammer
“The SS21 collection focuses on the combination of things that used to be considered as opposites, both in visual and functional aspects. It aims to adapt to the changes in everyday lifestyle, that has been brought upon by the covid19 pandemic, while staying true to the brand ethos of upcycling via deconstruction and reconstruction – a collection for the new ordinary. More than 70% of the collection is made with either vintage or recycled fabrics. This collection makes heavy use of Regen – the world’s first eco-friendly heavy-duty nylon thread. In the context of the seasonal concept, the collection displays printed silk charmeuse shirting and pant sets.“- from ul:kin
“Imagination of love and love in the imagination. The SS21 collection seeks out to transport one to a phantasmagorical state. Through pieces that display the new wave of elevated athleisure aesthetic, in the form of knee length lace tunic hoodies, and wide leg silk trousers; this collection is made for the woman with a lively personality. Of note, the collection features many pieces that were made by the use of several high-tech functional fabrics, that block UV rays thereby creating cool comfortability for the modern woman that is conscious of her environment and surroundings.” – From Jarret
