A futuristic online display of spring/summer 2021 fashion was presented at Concept Korea by designers Wnderkammer, Ul:Kin, and Jarret. This annual event at New York Fashion Week aims to help upcoming korean designers reveal their collections beyond Korea.
Designer Wnderkammer opened up the show with modern, elongated and sophisticated pieces made for the working woman. The collection consists mostly of long sleeve button down dresses, pencil skirts and very chic bermuda shorts crafted in fabrics such as satin and leather. It was almost like the shorts were made for more professional settings outside of what we’re used to seeing them worn in. There were also appearances of long a-line skirts and dresses. Most pieces are patternless but still very unique in shape and design. The color scheme throughout the collection includes muted colors such as beiges, blacks, and creams with spots of red. These looks are versatile and perfect to wear inside and outside of an office environment.
Ul:Kin continued the show with designs that could be categorized as edgy with a futuristic touch. The collection consists of fabrics such as leather, denim and a few satin pieces. Prints such as army and metallic made appearances throughout the line which highlights the edginess. What brings an almost gothic undertone to the collection are the majority of black colored pieces paired with silver chain accessories. There were appearances of baggy cargo pants, denim jeans, oversized button down shirts, and even one legged pants. This collection is very loud, edgy and chic streetwear.
Closing the show was designer Jarret who displayed a softer side of spring/summer. The collection consists of light and airy flowy pieces which are especially fitting for the spring season. Flowery and horizontal striped patterns matched with colors such as lilac, grey, and light green mixed a modern yet gentle side of the upcoming seasons. There were appearances of oversized blazers with matching pants and crop tops with matching shorts making this collection pretty flexible in the different environments these pieces can be worn in. Some pieces were even crafted with sheer textures which emphasizes the gentle side of the collection. The line also has a renaissance touch to it as blouses with lantern sleeves also made appearances. Overall this collection conveys a dreamy feel to it as the pieces gives off a sense of tranquility and brightness in style and color.
