1970’s Fusion Glam at Son Jung Wan Spring Summer 2020 during New York Fashion Week
In keeping with classic 1970’s women’s fashion, the models at Son Jung Wan’s Spring Summer 2020 show donned chunky platform heels and wore their hair crimped and disco-style. Recent years have seen the emphatic revival of the 1970’s style both in the fashion world and in streetwear.
In emphasizing the free-flowing nature of the 1970’s, the material used is rippled and cascaded across the length of the body, creating an abundance of ruffle detailing. While the form of the pieces took a classic 70’s daywear silhouettes, the textiles used helped to elevate the looks to the glamorous, disco-level that was also popular during the time. With jumpsuits and gowns in shimmering hues ranging from champagne to electric lime green to an array of fuchsias, the collection cleverly fuses daytime and nighttime styles of the 1970s into one vibrant collection.
Not all pieces are overtly bohemian; however, many are modern gowns with a subtle nod to the freedom of the era. One shimmering, silver piece begins with structured shoulders and a plunging neckline on top but descends into a cinched, mermaid style skirt. What’s most noticeable are the panels of bell-bottom style ruffles, clearly designed to mimic flared disco pants. The collection achieves more by refusing to design pieces that would have been worn in the era: instead reinventing the classic silhouettes with modern fits and using a refreshed color palette to do so. In doing so, the collection can successfully “bring back” the 70’s without looking dated and oversaturated.
