On Tuesday, Moon Young Hee confirmed her taste for elegance and delicacy by presenting gracious ballerina silhouettes along the unanticipated runway at 66 rue de Turenne in Le Marais.
For Spring/Summer 2010, the Korean designer created a poetic collection of romantically deconstructed, (very) short dresses and tunics. The silhouettes were vaporous and airy.
Playing with transparencies, Moon Young Hee demonstrated once again her craftsmanship by exploring 3D layering and delicate pleating in a variation of shapes and volumes. Her muted palette, a majority of black and white, flirted with blues and beiges in solid colors and stripes of delicate fabrics.
She balanced organic shapes with more geometric ones, and explored variations of twists at the neck and the shoulders.
From where I sat, I was able to appreciate beautiful stitching details as finishing, as shown here on the back of this look. The collection was a success. We all need a bit of poetry in this world.
