With only two previous collection under his belt for his namesake label, Munsoo Kwon has managed to carve an refreshing lane for himself with the imagination and drive of a youthful child. Fitting as his upcoming Fall/Winter 2013 collection plays with the notion of “kidult” the cultural phenomenon that sees adults reconnecting with their childhood through activities traditional thought to be adolescent. Through a tailored lens this inspiration is played out through the vibrant color palette and styling Kwon has approached his winter offerings. Schoolboy attire is given renewed vigor through pattern play and texture while remaining sophisticated through a strong versatile palette of black, greys, and blues. Kwon’s silhouettes may have a sense of familiarity but by him approaching his collection with a open eye he’s been able to bring a sense of wonder into menswear, something that is not so apparent at times.
