There’s a fine line between playfully kitschy and downright tacky. Son Jung Wan managed to take the glamour of Seventies disco fashion and steer it toward the latter. Where there should have been flamboyant allure, instead were indiscreetly positioned sheer panels, unflattering metallics, cheap patent leather and unruly sequins.
It was a spectacle, undoubtedly, but begged at least a few questions: What market does this fill? Who is the target customer? Where would she wear these looks? Quite honestly, there were no answers — but a few admirable qualities were worth noting. Though the fabric choices were grating, Wan could be commended for construction and fit as well as the appeal of an off-white billowy dress in a subtle curtain print.
