It’s back to not-so-basics for Ji Oh. The designer showed her focused fall collection via private appointments, trimming what used to be an open presentation format of about 100 pieces to fewer than half of that.
“It’s a lot more edited. I am not doing so many bottoms and jackets, as shirting is the strength and core of my collection,” Oh explained.
So for fall, she offered numerous novelty shirts ranging from asymmetric buttons, cropped styles with slits on the sleeves or ties at the arms and an off-the-shoulder longer version, all in either solid white or blue-and-white stripes. And although Oh admitted the story is about shirting, she could not help but show some great options of her other forte: oversized go-to knits with special details. Case in point: an oversized cashmere-blend ribbed V-neck sweater dress that could be worn backwards for a higher neckline. “Several pieces can be worn different ways,” she said, pointing to a reversible shearling jacket that’s white on one side, blue on the other. For a fun fashion moment, Oh went for a red faux-leather jacket and mini-skirt. “It’s just all the stuff that I want to wear.”
