Fresh off the Paris Fashion Week runway, Katie Chung took time to debut her followup offering as Wooyoungmi’s lead design ace, unveiling a collection that respectfully paid tribute to the late, great David Bowie. When acknowledging the collection’s underlying theme, Chung symbolized the artist’s sartorial flair, prefacing the collection as “a modernized version of David Bowie’s personal style for the next generation.”

The assemblage can be described as one brimming with androgynous tailoring and heritage prints with sporadic glam accents subtly weaving in and out. While trousers — for the most part — took on simplistic form-fitting silhouettes, tops, on the other hand, borrowed elements from decades past, calling for boxy blazers and exaggerated butterfly-style collars with plenty of striped patterns and check prints well represented. Adding a welcomed touch of stylized elegance were a troupe of luxe touches that upped certain ensembles, including sequined choker necklaces, branded belt buckles and shimmery button-down shirts.
