South Korean designer Zio Song has been one of Asia’s most influential voices in fashion since his debut in 1993. While working closely with famous South Korean actors and pop stars, Song helped introduce the black suit the main stream in the country and is credited for playing a large park in South Korea’s embracing of high end fashion. While he got famous through the simplicity of the black suit, Song’s designs for Songzio’s 2018 spring summer collection are designed with more patterns and colors to take on a more difficult task.

The collection is inspired by the phrase “Man, in his night, searches for his own light.” To represent this, Song set out to showcase a man trapped from exploring his own emotions by placing his subject behind pinstripes and horizontal bars, alluding to a type of emotional prison. The theme of stripes is very dominant in the collection, finding it’s way onto a handful of jackets, shirts, trousers and shorts. To balance out the collection, Song has also included a series of slim-fitting formal wear, including an all-black two-piece suit with rounded edges around the shoulders. The collection is finished off with open toed sandals with leather straps. View the full collection above.
