Owing to deft fingers of the fashion-forward citizens of the South Korean fashion capital that swipe through social media for the top trends, a gallery of attires dictating the street trends is inevitable at the biggest fashion event at Seoul. The street game at the Fall/Winter 2019 edition of the Seoul Fashion Week complemented the high fashion runway shows.
The street trends this time surpassed the logo-mania memo the Korean fashion enthusiasts have been following, as many left their Off-White sneakers and Gucci belts and bags at home while embracing new wave of DIY trends showed via unconventional silhouettes, print plays and layering.
The go-to colour of the season was neon green, a trend direction from the Spring 2019 global runways. The colour took over outerwear or bottomwear with colour blocking, paneling, animal prints, mesh and contrast seams over cargo pants- the latter silhouette marking another easy trend during the event. The striking green was also paired with another neon hit, orange, for colour-blocking looks.
The overall mood was semi-formals leaning towards smart casuals as fashionistas trotted on the Seoul fashion streets in pant-suits, shirts, crisp skirts or blazers. The trend peeped through in diversified manner- with coordinated sets in eccentric prints, with layered ensembles blurring the lines between athleisure and formals, with heavy accessories such as chunky chains, slave chains and corset belts.
Twinning ensembles took center stage on these streets as fashion duos and trios marched together in attires resembling the other in terms of styles, silhouettes, colour stories, print patterns or graphics that were twisted to represent socio-political and ecological cause.
Oversize sleeves and cinched waists were the top picks for the fashion parade runners when it came to silhouettes with a strong affinity towards mix of volumes and heavy layering. Swipe through for our edit of the top looks spotted at the Seoul Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019.
