The Concept Korea presentation was a spectacular showcase of collections by Korean designers Doho, Lie Sang Bong, Resurrection by Juyoung, Song Jung Wan, and Steve J & Yoni P at Avery Fisher Hall. Concept Korea is a popular design competition held by the Ministry of Sports and Tourism and the Korean Creative Content Agency held a presentation of the 5 winners of the competition.
Resurrection by Juyoung menswear line’s concept for Spring/Summer 2012 is about the contrast. Known for their signature men’s skirts, this season was about “soft flowing materials contrasting with masculine structured silhouettes”. I noticed a lot unconventional layering of different materials in different weights. There were also lots of contrasting colors in red, blue, orange in traditional Korean checkered pattern.
