Seoul Fashion Week began last week in Seoul, with top designers, including VanHard di Albazar, BYUNGMUN SEO, MOOHONG, Line OR Circle, SONGZIO and more. The first day of Seoul Fashion Week, which primarily showcased menswear, was undoubtedly a hit, but it appears that designer SONGZIO’s collection grabbed exceptional attention.
According to the official website, the SONGZIO philosophy is as follows:
“SONGZIO exemplifies Zio Song’s design identity: Aspiration. Aspiration is what represents SONGZIO’s ambition. Every single piece of clothing is a visualization of his inspiration. His work symbolizes the odyssey of a young master, referred to in Korean as ë„ë ¹ (Doryung), who achieves his progressive ideals through his elegant yet fearless journey. The protagonist of the brand is the young master who is an elegant poet, a painter, an artist, whose oriental elegance SONGZIO interprets through it modern eyes.”
For the first day of Seoul Fashion Week, SONGZIO’s collection hit the runway with designs that emphasized unique stripe patterns and silhouettes using monochromatic hues, mainly black and white.
His show also attracted attention when South Korean actor Cha Seung-won who was originally an in-demand fashion model before turning into a successful actor. It looks like his attention is back on the runway. Cha Seung-won took charge of the collection’s opening wearing a chic, all-black suit that was followed by other monochromatic designs with coral red and toned-down blue hues. The entire collection maintained unity under restricted colours.
Let’s take a look at some of his top designs.
