If there’s one thing Seoul-based brand Wooyoungmi is known for, is its devotion to the details. Even the most minute stitches and trims are precisely applied, which is a testament to the label’s keen sense for construction and quality. For 2017 spring/summer, Wooyoungmi combines the ideas of strength and delicateness — from afar the looks have a rigid look and feel, but at close glance, one can see right away the softness of the draping and the fabric. Needless to say, structure is an important aspect to the collection as seen from the ruffled tops, voluminous pants and asymmetric hemlines. This season is also inspired by New York artist Sol LeWitt, whose famous works focused on geometric and linear themes. These are translated fully in the check and swirl patterns seen on some of the pieces. Overall, Wooyoungmi delivers another collection that reflects the brand’s futuristic edge, never reaching the territory of the absurd when it comes to reimagining menswear classics, and always staying within the bounds of timeless luxury.
