Rejina Pyo FW14

A review by Nadiah Ahmad Shukri.

Rejina Pyo sets the rules for effortless style through graphic shapes and contrasting colors and fabrics. Coats of vibrant blue, green and orange are a sharp juxtaposition on the silk, wool and faux fur canvases. The recurring parallelogram, guided by the diagonal stripes of Roger Mayne’s 1957 photograph of a girl doing the jive, are an unexpected play on abstract, yet minimal, painting.

The Seoul born designer masters the deconstruction of manufactured garments, through crisscross stitching on the insides of relaxed silhouettes and peek-a-boo pocket linings. The contemporary structures perennially inspired by Ellsworth Kelly seem to make it across the ever-fragile bridge between art and fashion, distinguished from the saturated waters of painterly trials.
