vanhart homme fw 2011/12 by du young jung
VanHart Homme is the rebranded label for Korean designer Du Young Jung, who formerly presented under the title Fahrenheit Homme. After his 'Fahrenheit Yachting' collection last season Jung continues the modern classic vs. sporty mix & match with this years 'VanHart Riding' complete with riding boots, cropped jackets & a finale of models sporting riding helmets. Fur was prominent on jackets, capes & even hand-sewn into a belted scarf. Sheepskin & black dyed lamb's wool were also seen. But there was also a decidedly oriental element to the show - most dominantly in the oversized Joseon Dynasty era hats and also in some of the overlapping v-neck shirts. Some might find the styling to be a bit heavy handed while others would call it luxurious, with accessories from bags & gaiters to suspender belts, neck scarves & pocket squares. Overall a very smart collection with a lot of wearable pieces.
