Fashion brand ROKH presented their Fall Winter 2021.22 Omniverse Collection that explores and reimagines brand’s signature codes, at the ongoing digital Paris Fashion Week. The collection was inspired by designer’s multi-cultural past – he was born in Korea, raised in America, studied and worked in London and Paris. It focuses on craft and construction – creating a clean outcome from a complex pattern.
“In the blank concrete space of a brewing factory, we shot the collection without frills to highlight the movement of each garment. There is a sharpness to this season, beginning with the first series of fitted black skirt suits, including a new petite jacket with a cobweb of cut-outs. There are two skirts with asymmetric knife pleats. I constructed them freehand on the body, slicing the layers at different levels until I found the right one. I think you can imagine how I cut it in the studio. That is the beauty I see in my clothing. It looks almost unfinished, mid-process, so you can envision the hand still at work.
Classic Rokh looks live alongside statement pieces like a knit bodysuit and skirt with three tiers of silver fringe cascading down the front and silver and camel-toned leopard print eco-faux fur coats. There’s a degree of randomness, of clash and contrast. Like the lace corset top and the ultra high-waisted jean skirt, cut from denim that was stonewashed, acid-washed, and sand-blasted by artisans in Portugal. Paneled pencil skirts are sewn from heritage men’s suit fabric and paired with filmy black lace tops. There are three couture dresses—lace and pearls and tulle, beaded and embroidered by hand over the course of six months—worn with raw-edged jeans.” – from ROKH
