Paris, France – It is at the Couvent des Cordeliers where Korean designer Songzio adds his touch to the concession of ideas for Spring/Summer 2016 fashions. And it appears that the designer will not miss a beat in terms of hitting the top trends.
From the first look it is clear that Songzio is on point with the trend of prints. His enjoys a splash of mustard before giving way to gray and white abstract paint splashes. The two are placed on his beautifully tailoring.
We move from baggy full trousers to lengths ranging from ¾ and ½ before finishing into shorts. The designer is very careful to add in slim trousers before heading into the leggings. The coats in the collections are for more formal occasions, though they can be made easily into chic looks for less formal needs but where certain sense of style is stilled required. He tailors the redingote inspirations close to the body while still managing to offer short cropped, slimming jackets. And he is careful to do these pieces with no lining.
The only accessories this season seem to be the sandals, which too bear the prints from the pieces in collection. And there is also the occasional handkerchief-scarf set in stiff material and doubled around the neck.
The last section of the collection sees the addition of black into the shapes. We find it in the It is used in the unlined redingote with micro lapels, in short sets, and in the surprisingly voluminous coat.
Thin cotton and linen blends are the star fabrics in the collection. Thanks to them the Songzio man will be able to be stylish, wear various lengths and tailoring selections, yet without the fear of over heating when the months get to their hottest.
