I am super excited about collaborating with Korean designer Son Jung Wan! Her designs are perfect for a woman who wants to look both feminine and chic. I styled three looks from her AW16 collection and the quality of materials, paired with the fit, were amazing. Son Jung Wan is one of South Korea’s most successful designers, and has her designs sold in high end boutiques in both the United States and South Korea. It is very impressive how she manages to mix so many textures and patterns in to one piece. They all flow together so effortlessly! Son Jung Wan’s AW16 collection is mix of soft and beautiful, muted tones. She also designs menswear, and the collection remains visually cohesive, using similar silhouettes and cuts.
For the first look, I styled this amazing blouse with classic denim jeans and a soft suede clutch. The sleeves are made of luxurious and super soft fur that create a level of elegance. It is designed with an asymmetrical hem, making it look feminine and delicate. The chunky knit with the use of three different furs kept me warm but still able to look chic. This piece is easy to style for everyday wear, but could easily transition to a more formal look. I paired it with magenta stilettos, choosing these colors makes the rest of the outfit pop because it brings out the bright colors and texture in the fur sleeves.
The second look I styled was more edgy! I work leather pants and shiny gold stilettos. It has a major “city girl” feel to it while still remaining feminine and elegant. The silhouette of this blouse is similar to the first one that flows and drapes across the body in a beautiful way. This blouse is very forgiving and flattering on any body type. The colors and furs in this top were more neutral, making it easy to style it with endless options. I thought it looked really chic with this wide brimmed fedora, which paired together perfectly. Since this piece is full of textures and different patterns, I balanced it out with a pair of skinny leather pants to note take away from the main piece.
The third and final look is my very favorite piece of the collection! This coat is the definition of flirty, fun and feminine. It is mainly fur, soft blue knit on the upper half, and then the two elements are connected by a pink glitter stripe in the middle. I loved the color palette in the collection, so I chose over the knee boots that had the same pastel pink color I saw in the rest of the pieces. This also brought the whole look together and called attention to the small amount of pink in the coat. To add even a little more pink, I chose a soft pink Gucci handbag to add texture. The design in this coat was similar to the other two blouses, with a flowy bottom hem and oversized sleeves.
The whole collection is beautiful and offers pieces that you must have in your closet! I would love to style every piece Son Jung Wan offers in her collections. It really plays on the edge of women wanting to be sexy and feminine while remaining chic and on-the-go. If you have not checked out the entire line, I would definitely recommend it. She mixes textures and fabrics in unexpected ways. Each piece is designed with so much care, and passion.
