On September 7th, I attended Son Jung Wan’s Spring/Summer 2020 show during New York Fashion Week.

And what a show it was!

Putting a modern twist on the term “vintage glamor,” Son Jung Wan brought us outfits that women can wear during warmer temperatures that ooze sophistication, while still being fun and relevant.

Want more details? Not to worry—I’ve got you covered. Read on for 3 spectacular stories from the captivating collection.

1. Extravagant Splendor

Good news for satin-loving stylistas like me, anything shiny and silky will be sticking around for SS20. And we can thank Son Jung Wan’s dreamy dresses for this!

From futuristic metallics and exaggerated lines to romantic ruffles and dazzling sequins, maximalism undeniably reigned supreme at the show. And to be honest, it’s never been more mesmerizing (or felt more diverse!)

There were also puffed sleeves and bows aplenty following in the footsteps of SS19, which I was personally happy about. I mean, who doesn’t love ladylike opulence? It’s a big yes from me.

2. Retro Graphics

This theme of extravagant splendor was taken to a new level through retro prints of eras gone by.

Following on from the oversized shapes and over-the-top detailing of the SS19 season, Son Jung Wan’s SS20 collection was all about showcasing multiple lustrous layers. However, instead of consisting of one color, multi-hued, sixties-inspired stripes and polka dots strutted down the catwalk. 

We even saw seventies-style florals and maxi-lengths that brought new meaning to the term “luxe bohemia.” For me, it was love at first sight.

3. Contrasting Colour

Speaking of color, there was an eclectic mix of classic rose gold, silver, and bronze hues juxtaposed with electric blue, sunshine yellow, and popping orange.

We were even treated to a splash of green neon reminiscent of SS19, so don’t throw this trend out of your closet just yet!

This array of colour was then muted down with the timeless modernity of white and cream that would work for 2020 brides looking to put a contemporary spin on their wedding look. Now, that’s what I call classic chic.
