On October 19, designer Hong Hye Jin debuted the Spring/Summer 2015 collection of her label the studio K at Seoul Fashion Week. The title for the show was “Both Sides Now” and serene yet spacey instrumentals filled the air as models sauntered down the runway in well-tailored designs with clean lines and simple silhouettes that are characteristic of the studio K. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection contains a little bit of everything including pleats, abstract patterns, ribbon embellishments, mountain prints and lots of horizontal stripes. The color scheme was mostly washed out pastels, but did incorporate a deep plum, olive green and vibrant cerulean blue. Accessories seen in the show included mirrored sunglasses, bowed platform sandals and oversized clutches.
A special guest model was also seen on the runway, Kpop idol and Get It Beauty co-host Jaekyung of Rainbow made several passes down the catwalk for the studio K. At one point she wore a top and shorts in matching abstract print with a sheer white jacket covered in tiny stars. Later she could be seen in a blue single-button blazer that featured stripes down the sleeves. This was worn over a mountain print top and seersucker shorts and blue mirrored sunglasses.
