A Raft of Champion Ideas
The Korean designer Juun J also is full of ideas. His collection, “Deviated,” played with the concept of breaking up the linear planes of men’s suiting.
Collars came outfitted with gold zippers, sweaters were knitted to drop into wide holes at the hip, and suits were slashed open at the wrists and ankles to expose bare flesh. The models, styled to look like sons of Mr. Spock in footwear by Kiroic that seemed chiseled out of cement blocks, had a space-age vibe.
But the asymmetrical blazers, textured leather jackets and sleeveless trench coats they wore had a noble grace, outfitted as they were with gold embellishments.
If this collection had a fault, it was the lack of editing. The designer should remember that it is possible to have too much of a good thing.
