Rejina Pyo's collection is the quintessence of style. Fantastic, not in the sense that it creates spectacular scenarios and imagination runs free, but because of its ability to elevate everyday life, making it elegant and fresh. It's minimal and clean, but it also has some hidden treasures, gems that turns it into a feast for the eyes.
Maybe because of fabrics, so light and tactile, especially linen, absolute star of the majority of garments. Or maybe because of the colours, coming from the earth, very warm and crumbly. Or because of the patterns, or golden details, or denim in double washes. Or again bags and shoes in pastel leather. The list is way to long to be considered point by point.
Rejina Pyo herself explained, when the show ended, that the collection born from the fascination the designer has for "people's life" and how her goal is to make her clothes "live in their lives, and their wardrobes". Pure and simple vitality is what really comes from every look of the show. But this much wanted daily life effect also carries signals of a very productive fantasy. Just to give you an example, let's see the double edge of the final male jacket: such a simple detail able to change the whole look.
To be honest and to be fair with Pyo's will, the "male" outfits presented in the collection are meant to be unisex. They are clothes for share, in an hypothetical common wardrobe fro the couple. This is just an other way to enter people's life and give it a twist.
