Cy Choi Spring/Summer 2013

Menswear designer Chul Yong has shared the lookbook images for his label Cy Choi’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection with The Style Examiner. With its relaxed tailoring, exploration of innovative fabrics, and use of bright colours in contrast with black and muted greys, this seventh collection by Cy Choi is one of the strongest (f not the strongest) since the label was founded in Paris in 2009.

Eudon Choi Womenswear Spring/Summer 2013

To display his collection for Spring/Summer 2013 as part of London Fashion Week’s official calendar, Choi opted for an intimate salon show. With the title ‘Space Oddity’, the range of garments combined influences from science fiction and films, namely Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ (1968) and Michelangelo Antonioni’s ‘Blow Up’ (1966), and investigated the romantic take on futurism as engendered by 1960s popular cultural interpretations of what the twenty-first century would look like.
