The models emerged with washed-out faces, their hair pulled into slicked-back buns with a headband and their bodies completely covered up for the most part in jersey draping, Chung’s speciality, here spun in an ultramodest, intellectual direction. It was a very specific look — perhaps too forced — with a lot of turtlenecks, some on tight tops with a twist at the bust; others in languid dresses that swamped the girls’ bodies.
