“Airness” is the intertwining of art, clothing and the awareness of global warming. Demoo Parkchoonmoo SS17 transforms clothes into receptacles of air, cooling the body, leaving room for both fashion and functionality with hues from the designer’s original artwork.
Demoo Parkchoonmoo SS17 consists of dark, subdued colors like black, navy blue and gray. Her usual monochromatic, graphic looking patchwork blouses, skirts and tops; along with fluid silhouettes have a strong presence.
The collection’s silhouettes are inspired by the sunbi, a Korean scholar uniform for men. Denim within traditional Asian patterns also graced the runway. Park’s inspiration is easily found in the kimono-esque coats worn with wide trousers, cotton and gauze bonded coats, short jackets and loose long silk dresses.
