Just like it requires balance to build a wall, the Korean designer presented in the Grand Palais of Paris a perfectly equilibrate and timeless collection. Out of human cells-illuminated skyscrapers (or were they stones?), the woman presented by Lie Sang Bong was at the same time feminine and full of personality, capable of wearing pure and clean A-line skirts as well as deconstructed dresses, reflecting their total versatility and capacity to adapt to any decades’ wardrobe. Beginning with back-to-basics looks on which fur and leather dominated in tones of black and burgundy, the show then evolved towards 50’s inspired dresses and trench coats, before skipping a few years and ending up with 70’s floor length dresses in black transparent sheers, also covering women’s bodies with red and black plastic rounded volumes. As if to empower the woman of an extra dose of feminity, black high heels were associated on the most masculine looks: a subtle way of perfecting the contrasts of this already 100% controlled collection.
