In a distinctly strong opener for Korean-born LFW force Eudon Choi, this season was a controlled display of his strengths. Taking his cues from the Japanese conceived architectural movement Metabolism, powerful panel blocking moved minimalism beyond the LFW norm in a majorly refreshing turn.
Layers of lofty scarves increased the architectural knit aspects and saw Eudon experimenting with proportion and the extremes a simple cut can go to in order to transform the body. Incorporating some florals into the mix was an interesting choice and whilst they made the majority of ensembles look a little confused they excelled others to statement fashion status.
The petal preferable motif worked best in vivid carnal tones of crimson and held a lot more visual impact than the somewhat non-concurrent prince of Wales check which popped up here and there. This show marked a strong progression in the sartorial rise of Choi and one that should keep him safe and sound among one of LFW’s staple designers.
