WORDS Julian de la Celle


     South Korean designer SONGZIO presented his playful, yet structured SS18 collection in the early hours of the second day of LFWM. Inspired by the phrase: 'Man, in his night, searches for his own light', the collection featured scratch-like horizontals and contrasting silhouettes, as well as a perfect casting of models for each piece. The collection began with a vibrant blue and white striped tailored suit which progressed into oranges and yellows, then to darker colours, ending in black and grays - the contrast of bright colours to muted ones gave the collection a personal touch which flowed smoothly. Sharply tailored fit jackets graced the catwalk against the loose and playful silhouettes of the innerwear and trousers. The collection was bold in it's choices, making it one of the best this season.
