Songzio SS18 Menswear at London Fashion Week: Mens

South Korean designer, SONGZIO presented his SS18 collection entitled “Crossing Veils” at London Fashion Week Men’s. This season marks the brand’s third UK showcase outside of the Paris and Seoul fashion weeks.

 “Crossing Veils” was inspired by the phrase: ‘Man, in his night, searches for his own light’- man’s emotional journey from a boy’s curiosity in all things, a young man’s ambitions to a lover’s yearning -  always searching for a way to express and show his feelings in a rigid society.

It’s stripes, stripes and more stripes – ranging from jaunty wide awning stripes teamed with candy striped shirts, chic clean calk stripes teamed with shadow striped shirts,

to the more sombre classic pinstripe and tonal stripes

Look closely and you’ll find a print inside the awning and candy stripes. This print took inspiration from two portrait paintings by Velasquez depicting the Infanta Margarita Teresa in both a pink and a blue dress, Songzio has painstakingly translated Velasquez’s loose brushstrokes on to printed textiles inside his vertical awning stripes.

Colour palette juxtaposes the brand’s classic black and white with the more whimsical  royal blue, yellow and an orange shade very close to the pink shade used by Velasquez.

Sharply tailored fit jackets with shawl collars contrast against the loose and playful silhouettes of shirts.

Trousers range from billowing to slim 

with side fringing,

 jodpurs and buckles holding slit openings together

 T-shirts sport watercolour painting prints. 

The result is a collection, that is dramatic and bold with delicate artworks

For this season SONGZIO has designed two pieces of footwear including derby’s embellished with metal studs and sandals.
