mvio ss12 by haan
The first runway show I ever saw was back in 2008 when Korean designer Han Sanghyuk was still designing for his first label BON. Since then Han, who from that first glimpse of the catwalk has been one of my favorite Korean designers, has moved onto being creative director for another label called MVIO. MVIO has put on some very far out yet very wearable collections over the past few seasons and the latest SS12 'Plasticman' presentation was no exception. Preppy, sailor meets future doctor inspired clothing were cleverly styled in quirky surgical gear with much fewer layers than we usually see from MVIO. I was happy to see Han pushing the baggy shorts over leggings look that has been popular in Korean and Japanese street fashion for quite a few years and I really loved the pastel patchwork pattern found midway through the collection. I'm not crazy about nautical stripes, but I did enjoy how he used them in the short pants suit with matching tie. Take a look at a few of my favorite runway looks.
ps. make sure to go to the 'downloads' section of the MVIO website for free downloads of runway music mixed by DJ Eunchurn. More, More, More is my personal favorite!
