Juun.J SS15

Playing with proportions and masculinity, space-age sportswear and starry prints

Initial reaction:

Space-age street boys in silver sportswear, t-shirts with constellations bursting across them, and futuristic holographic knits.

Out with the old:

Juun.J is known for his penchant for deconstructing the traditional in order to forge new codes in design. For SS15, the Korean designer played with proportions and cuts to create exaggerated, masculine shapes. T-shirts were blown up oversize with shoulders becoming unfeasibly broad, whilst the roomy sleeves on jackets and coats almost resembled Incredible Hulk-sized muscles. However, like his SS14 collection – which paired American sportswear silhouettes with high waisted, thigh skimming shorts – the collection also had elements of the traditionally feminine: shirts were cut into sharp boatnecks, revealing a flash of shoulder.

How it was worn:

With white shell-toed velcro sneakers, hair parted slickly down the centre and huge blacked-out Willy Wonka shades.

Last season, the designer evoked a new elegance with pony skins, skintight leathers and a hint of sportswear. See it below:
