WOOYOUNGMI – PARIS F/W 2012 FASHION SHOW
South Korean Wooyoungmi showed her clean and classic Fall/Winter 2012 collection on January 21st. Doing a retake on a retro pinstripe double breasted jacket, she elongates the torso and with a shortened pant hem shortens the leg, which might be counter-intuitive design wise, but is pulled off flawlessly. Taking cue also from the military inspiration that is in the air, and certainly the Parisian water too, several jackets referenced flight bombers from WWII. This 50’s era influence can also be seen in the refreshing neck scarves and ties throughout the collection. Although ties have been pretty scarce on the runways, it seems like a breath of fresh air to see a few successful examples scattered throughout Wooyoungmi’s line.
