Wooyoungmi AW15

Night-walkers make their way through the city in undone suits and thrown together layers

Initial reaction:

Joint creative directors Madame Woo and Katie Chung see their men in the city – returning home from work late into the evening, wandering around in a pensive state of mind. Suits are undone and worn loose with neckties; felt in shades of grey, burgundy, camel and blue make up these soothing silhouettes. Layers are haphazardly placed together. This is a newly relaxed aesthetic for Wooyoungmi.

Step to it:

Footsteps kicked off the show as an audio reminder of a man striding on the streets late at night. Models walked over a metal bridge constructed inside the Palais de Tokyo, ensuring their loud steps were heard in contrast to the quiet textures and colours in this tactile collection.

Banker bags:

Paris has seen a newfound appreciation for corporate wear and city attire. Perhaps banker hate has finally subsided, as Wooyoungmi’s new signature bags and folios were inspired by traditional bank deposit bags, featuring a distinctive single curved corner and a lock stopper.
