A master of construction, Lie Sang Bong wowed the crowds at New York Fashion Week this year, with his spectacular architectural design creations for Spring Summer 2016.
Playing with the traditional mosaicked wrapping clothes worn in Korea, Sang Bong‘s “Bojagi” collection is relaxed and airy, while at the same time managing to have a structured air of geometry about it thanks to the patchwork fabric quilting technique and the clever layering of fabrics.
The show began with a sophisticated selection of pure white looks. The use of linen, silk and transparent cut-outs allow for lightness in the designs, while structure is not forgotten in the origami folds and asymmetrical lines and shapes. Sang Bong also dabbles in a variety of different blues which he slowly incorporated into the graph prints on trench coats, skirts and sheer tops
The elegance and serenity that Sang Bong achieves is masterful indeed. His collaboration with artist Dong-Shik Roe added to the magical feel. If only I was able to blow on one of those dandelion heads and wish the whole collection to be mine!
