SON JUNG WAN Fall 2015 COLLECTION MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK in NEW YORK

February 14, 2015


February 14, 2015 afternoon designer Son Jung Wan presented her Fall 2015 collection for Mercedes Benz

Fashion Week at Lincoln Center. Inspired by the romantic MGM films of the 1950’s and the fashion

photography of Gordon Parks the designer presented a collection best described as retro-meets-

modern; chock-full of glamour with a touch of romance.

Fabrics consisted of merino wool and handcrafted knits in unusual color combinations. Lively metallics,

leather and multi-colored furs brought forth the relaxed yet chic mood of the era.

Standouts included wool coats in vibrant orange, adorned with either a fox fur collar, lamb fur details or

beaver fur sleeves. Turquoise gaucho pants and voluminous skirts gave way to the finale look, a mint

green, sequined cocktail dress, which references the effortless evening look of the fifties. A selection of

menswear included cashmere and wool coats paired with rich colored trousers to complement the

womens’ designs, exhibiting a cohesive line.

Son Jung Wan presented her collection with a front row full of well-wishers. Model, actress and author 

Kelly Bensimon; model and DJ Eva Shaw; Natalie Bergman of Wild Belle;  Adelaide Kane of The CW’s

Reign and Miss USA 2012 Nana Meriwether took in the show alongside model and daughter of KISS

guitarist Gene Simmons, Sophie Simmons and her brother Nick.

Longtime friend Kelly Rutherford was seen embracing the designer as she took her finale bow on the

runway. A_5482_SON_JUNG_WAN_BACKSTAGE_spring2015_(C)2014_Vital_Agibalow
