New York: Korean designer Bumsuk Choi has done a great job at re-working classic styles into contemporary must-haves. For F/W 10, the fusion of active and traditional influences made for a captivating collection that captured the style sought by the modern urban man. A flannel double-breasted shorts suit with a slightly elongated proportion was layered over knit pants, while the expected duffel coat became anything but, with leather sleeves, exposed zipper and fur-lined hood. Choi’s sharp-edged version of a Fair isle pattern, along with some animal printed shoes, gave the collection a burst of graphic contrast. Juxtaposition of themes is always something fun and youthful to explore on the runway. Thankfully, Choi’s vision doesn’t stray too far from reality, serving up thoughtful interpretations of established standards.
