Koonhor Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2015 New York
There’s a focus on artisanal and handcrafted happening right now, likely one of endless attempts to push away from the table of fast, homogenized fashion and step into something a little more individualized and exclusive. Koonhor was just one of the brands doing this with fringe, intricate prints, graphic and cotton tapestry tunics.
Proportions and silhouette were an important component of the presentation told in part by the Balenciaga-esque sculptural hats that shielded the heads of a few models. Silhouettes were loose with long sweeping sweatshirts and pleated skirts, turning the feminine figure into a column. Sleeveless asymmetrical vests, trench coats and leather pouches (the fringe was here as well) embedded the city and a sportiness into the collection, which was at its strongest with the aforementioned doodle graphic print in black and white.
