Juun J. Menswear Fall Winter 2012 Paris

 

The Korean designer was usual playful self, offering his trademark balance between classical menswear citations and comic strip like appropriations.

The collection kicked off with vintage soldier reference, seemingly a mix between World War I and 19th century rifleman—: heavy khaki coats in heavy wool, helmet-like felt headpieces, plenty of straps and buckles for imaginary trenches.

Yet an Terminator-meets-the Michelin Man vibe was humorously injected by a clever contrast of materials: hybrids between leather and puffer jackets, woolen coats with neoprene embellishments, all created a tongue in cheek, ultra-muscular silhouette.

The show soon evolved into a futuristic warrior feel, with waxed, slick leather jackets, jumpers with alien figures à la 5th Element prints, and a grand finale of astronauts in poufy suits and plastic face protections.

“The mix of materials is what I’m proudest of,” said the designer backstage, “it introduces a new man, a sporty one.” For any male about to embark on a trip to Mars or the 23rd century, a total Juun J look seems like the ideal attire.
