beyond closet fw 2011/12 by ko tae yong
The Beyond Closet FW 2011/12 collection was once again entirely adorable. Each season designer Ko Tae Yong presents a theme such as 'Diary', 'Your Boyhood', 'Ordinary People' or this years 'Welcome Mr. B.C. Moving Company' and creates a very preppy, very innocent look reminiscent of childhood & the in-between years on the road to adulthood. The freckled moving men carrying boxes down the runway wore oh-so-Korean facemasks (worn when sick or during Yellow Dust season) along with shoulder bags & baseball caps bearing expressions like "Watch Out". There were a lot of checked patterns & quilted, utilitarian jackets with exterior bulky pockets in browns, greys, navys and, as seen in a quite a few others collections this season, mustard. I especially enjoyed the lego-like moving man logo used as a pattern on a few of the flood pants & shirts.
