Dear Pennies & Pens,
On Monday, I attended the press preview for Korean designer, Lie Sang Bong. As soon as I received the invite and lookbook, I knew I had to add it to my already hectic preview schedule. The Lie Sang Bong showroom is located in Chelsea right next to all the super cool art galleries. This gives the showroom location an artistic ambiance which I loved.
Upon entering the showroom, I met Nana who is the Director of the showroom. Nana carefully explained the inspiration for the Fall/Winter 2012 collection while I looked at the collection. She also showed me all the fabulous press Lie has received in major publications like Vogue, W, and more.
The Fall/Winter 2012 collection was inspired by “Dol Dam” which are traditional Korean stonewalls that are built by stacking pieces of stones of various sizes and shapes. In essence, the collection reinterprets architectural structure into an interesting mix of fabrics, shapes, details, and colors. The collection included fabrics like wool, silk, fine leather, and fur. Basically, the collection used high quality luxurious fabrics, clean tailoring, and a beautiful color palette. The color palette included black, grey, navy, burgundy, and hot pink.
My favorite pieces were the jackets! These pieces were so chic and minimal. I love minimal fashion because it stands the test of time. I also loved the fur pieces. The colors used were also amazing, these colors gave the clothes a cool look and I’m always partial to a pop of color. Please check out Lie’s site here .
And there it is. de la Pen…All Pen Everything.
