Autumn colours, preppy designs and Yearbook fonts dominated the runway when Korean boy wonder Ko Tae-Yong opened the second night of Men's Fashion Week 2012 with his label Beyond Closet. The collection contains the A to Z essentials for a stylish prep school boy, ranging from knitted pieces, plaid blazers to bomber jackets.
A collegiate theme also ran in General Idea designer Bamsuk Choi's creations that closed the night. However, Choi's designs were infused with a sense of practicality and the spirit of American sportswear, while leaning towards winter wear elements with the down jackets and quilted cardigans.
In between the two shows, Vandalist's Heemin Yang (Vandal) and Resurrection's Lee Juyong brought their interpretations of darkness to the runway. Yang's collection consists of multiple all-black ensembles featuring clean-cut avant-garde silhouettes with conical headgears, while the Resurrection pieces ranged from military inspired coats with zipper details to outerwear with fringes.
D.GNAK designer Dong Jun Kang's collection was largely inspired by Charlie Chaplin, with models parodying the moves in the immaculate suits that evoke memories of the old Hollywood days.
