Kicking off the runway with nude pink cotton blazer and cream-colored pleated skirt, the Korean designer Son Jung Wan introduced her Fall/Winter 2013 collection to the anticipating audience.

Son redefined elegance for upcoming fall and winter season with neutral colors and soft, simple, minimal designs.  With colors white, caramel, and ivory, her designs created classy and feminine look in overall.

A sudden change of the music warned the audience of the introduction of “fun” colors.  Although Son stayed with darker shades such as violet, burgundy, maroon, and turquoise, these colors popped out to express more exciting side of her collection.

“This time I got inspired by paint of Kandisky; his compositions series expressed the flow of music with dynamic of color,” said Son Jung Wan backstage after the show.  “All trends sprout from the young generations, so I think the brand is more alive and sustainable if youths find it wearable and likable.”

Son mostly stayed with one solid color, but her few prints included leopard and snake prints.  Using fox fur, her leopard prints were classy and luxurious addition to her work. She didn’t forget to add details to the corners of her designs such as use of metallic, suede, and fur. One of her most popular designs from the audience was fox fur coat with sequined details.

To complete the sophisticated and graceful styling, all hairs were placed up to help create such polished, elegant look, with makeup and nails done as natural and nude as possible by Miyako Okamoto for Shiseido.
