Koonhor Fall 2014 NYFW
It was a film noir scene at the Koonhoor Fall 2014 runway show held during NYFW. Rich black and gorgeous navy [a definite trending color for the upcoming season] are the most prominent shades in this masculine meets feminine set. Designers Koon Lim and Catrine Thé were greatly inspired by Paris in the 1960s when imagining this collection. Long trenches and leather staples most definitely ring true to that vision. Just hand one of these girls an umbrella, and she’s all set for a rainy stroll in The City of Love.
Leather is glossy fabulous here, with silhouettes staying sleek and trim. No frills or added frou frou, these are girls that flirt with a hint of attitude underneath. They’ll lure you in… but not without a bite. A hot black vest is perfectly paired with a black turtleneck dress and printed trenches are kept gray, but stay memorable. Military green is also heavily prevalent, looking super on trousers and dresses. It’s a little splash of color among this primarily grayscale vibe. Tailoring is flawless from head-to-head, making these looks smolder. There’s also a hint of military influences throughout, making the utilitarian feel welcoming for a fall set.
It’s nice to see a switch-up for this season, especially one prone to the same fabrics and aesthetics. A lovely line from a promising duo…we’re looking forward to more soon. fdmLOVES KOONHOOR Fall 2014 edits + selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Allison Ripa.
