butterflies are free to fly

Paris fashion week came to an end yesterday night
carrying out its usual evening routine, c'est à dire
concluding with Lie Sang Bong's spring collection show.

Probably the most famous Korean fashion designer,
Lie Sang Bong (often hailed as the Korean McQueen
for his theatrical approach) is always driven by an
invaluable source of inspiration: his own customers.

While the foregoing collection was stirred by earth
and stone (here), the latest s/s 2013 is airy and dreamy
or, better, ”it's about the butterfly and it's cocoon...” 
Lie declared to the press, wittily adding that ”the 
conceptbehind it is that I believe I can fly.”

Sang Bong presented the same theme of the collection
that came to open the first Asian Couture fashion week
in Bangkok on September last combining looks from his
classy ready-to-wear line together with more extravagant
pieces, the bespoke evening 'couture' outfits he's known
for, skillfully balancing the theatrical with the wearable.

This has been literally the ultimate collection, a true
anthology of the Parisian season's strong trends:
bright blue shades, vibrant red, black & white patterns,
enhanced shoulders, ruches, trench coats and tuxedos.

Exquisitely tailored feminine ensembles in a gripping
parade of houndstooth ad butterfly designs, both in
print and 3-D with acetate butterfly-shaped fluttering
attachments in his signature mix of East and West
where the pied de poule pattern represens the West
while the brightly colored butterfly symbolizes the East.
Me too I believe he can fly.
