Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: CARUSO

SFW S/S 2015: CARUSO

Inspired by a childhood memory, menswear designer Chang Kwang Hyo’s S/S ’15 collection is filled with nature and childhood innocence, the interaction of the two and the residuals of it, both the splendor and terror of that certain moment.

“This is a story from my boyhood.

SFW S/S 2015: CARUSO

It was a drowsy afternoon at the peak of summer break. As soon as I woke up from a nap, I picked up my backpack and rushed to school thinking I was late.

There was no one but an empty playground, desolate classrooms, and weeping trees; not a single sound of cicadas that used to entertain all summer long could be heard. Was it a dream?

What the boy saw on that fateful summer day was perfection in itself, with colors of objects, shades of trees, and intensity of lights orchestrated in perfect harmony by a prominent conductor.

The clock of the season and the face of the boy met at the boundary between an early morning and a relaxing afternoon, but what was lost surrounded the teary-eyed boy to elusive fear.

This collection is an earnest attempt at reproducing light and time; not an experimentation of light nor color but a sentimental recollection of what resides in my soul as a result of that fateful summer day.

SFW S/S 2015: CARUSO

My hope is that it will bring you back to your very own summertime, when the days were young in their liveliest and purest form.”
