Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: RESURRECTION

SFW S/S 2015: ResurrectionMasculinity can mean different things- or can it?

While the rest of Korea is drowning in 90′s pop culture (myself not-so-secretly included), it’s become apparent that what’s considered sexy for men has changed a lot over the years. Actually, I’m not so sure about the rest of the world but at least for me, there is a very high correlation between masculinity and sexual attractiveness, and for Resurrection’s spring collection through which designer Lee, Ju-young attempted to show both casual and masculine sides of menswear via industrial mood. As expected however, the so-called “masculinity” often felt more imposed than natural.

As many of us like to point out while watching female singers perform in their most provocative clothes, sexy isn’t about showing more skin, but it comes from within, which I’m sure can be achieved in fashion, too, without having to use skin as a major part of the collection. And obviously, with an incorporation of aggressive accessorizing, things can get quite complicated especially for menswear- the route which Lee decided to take anyway. Thankfully, it turned out not as disastrous but I’m fervently praying that no one else besides the model below attempts it at home.

While the mesh could have been skipped (note: this is purely a personal opinion, I’m just tired of them), graphic print and vertical stripes paired with leather pants (or faux, can’t tell) were cool, an ensemble in which even a use of the leather harness became forgivable. A high-end street wear that’s more luxurious and glamorous than it should be, perhaps. But either way, that’s what sets Resurrection apart from the rest of the menswear. Kudos for being adventurous especially for Korean menswear, Ms. Lee!

Seoul Fashion Week Fall 2014: RESURRECTION

1

Resurrection: The name of this collection is already making me flinch. I hope it really is a sign of death to life.

2

He should’ve left this jacket in the grave. Resurrection: It’s finally your chance to get rid of things you didn’t like.

3

 Don’t dig a hole for this outfit. Let me wear it.

4

Dig a hole. “Hurry, start digging”.

5

I can see some New Yorker being proud of wearing this look.

6

Well, I guess Lazarus had wrinkly clothes when he resurrected as well.

7

This guy went to the nearest dry cleaners after he rose from the dead. But he didn’t check his hair in the mirror.

8

A father warning her 3 year old daughter: “Honey, if a man like this ever approaches you make sure you kick him in the balls.”

9

Superb and flawless.He must’ve had high quality treatment six feet under.

10

Daughter responds, “Even if he didn’t do anything?” Dad replies, “Especially if he doesn’t do anything”.

11

Grand and annointed look.

12

Lord, shield my eyes from his pants and shoes. Desirable top though.

13

“Daddy, what about this man?” “Make sure he’s down on the floor. And then call the cops”.

14

I’m favoring this look too.

15

Daughter screams from the top of her lungs, “Daddy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

16

Me: “What did you see while you were down there?”

“This outfit.”

Me: “Then why’d you bring it back up?”

17

She went YOLO and started rampaging the streets before dying.

18

Embalm me in this jacket.

19

Oh gosh, more fur. Did you really have to bring an animal with you? He doesn’t resurrect only you do.

20

Whatever is on his elbows should run away.

21

Tragically awesome.

22

Tragic but probably awesome.

23

Daughter: “Daddy!!!!! I had a scary nightmare” *Shows this picture to her father*

24

Intricately fabulous.

25

Why, the T T’s?

26

Leader of the Dracula Club.

27

Founder of the Under World. He’s taking sign-ups for a yoga class for those who have perished.

28

He’s definitely not walking towards any weight-room. Those sleeves slide up way too easily.

29

The Yoga Instructor.

Catwoman: The Feline Atrocity

31

Play me Mozart. Can you ask Beethoven if I can get his autograph?

32

Esquire-like Jumper, Jezebel pants.

33

Transformers: He turns into a hairball.

34

No heart would flatline in this look.

35

Some hearts would flatline – stupid elbow pads again. Is there a rollerskating rink down there?

36

That zipper is as proportional to a coffin. We don’t really need that much space.

37

This is how LOL started.

38

The manager for the rollerskating rink.

39

Lend the jacket and explore the skirt.

40

This is why Batman loves cars- to drive away from these cat-ladies.

41

Cat-lady, meet Bat-boy.

42

Bat-boy, meet an actual bat.

Thanking you for supporting The Sage!
