During a walk-through, O’2nd brand director Minsoo Chung cited an emphasis on details such as raw edges, “tough” contrast stitching and pleats as some key elements of pre-fall. He noted, too, the mood board populated with images of the works of the Colombian artist Doris Salcedo — including her “Untitled” sculptures of stacked white dress shirts set in plaster. The references translated into a modernist collection with unexpected elements of deconstruction, such as a long-sleeve shirtdress, straightforward in front but with cutout pleats in the back. The looks were infused with femininity via colorful floral prints and insets of lace embroidery, particularly on dresses that featured interesting fabrics. Oversize stitching worked to chic effect as an accent on outerwear and leather shorts.
