MEN’S LOUNGE
Paris: Paris fashion week opened this season on an international note with South Korean ex-pat Moon Young Hee’s voluminous and layered F/W 13 collection. Presented in a neutral, monochrome palette typical of the designer, the focus was on wrapping and covering the body with many yards of silk and satin, resulting in full menswear trousers that occasionally looked like skirts as well as coats which could double as robes. A loungewear vibe extended into pajama sets with draped necklines as well as panne velvet tunics so cozy they could serve as high fashion’s answer to the Snuggie. Young Hee’s matte textures, ranging from roughed-up velvets to wrinkled crepe and fuzzy lurex made for her most successful pieces, while sheer organza trains peeking from stiff duchesse satin tops helped end this modern and masculine show on a refreshingly light note.—Nina Stotler
