Doo.Ri F/W 12.13 New York
Even without the mention of Butoh in Doo-Ri Chung’s show notes, it was obvious from the get-go that there was a modern-dance influence in motion. The models emerged with washed-out faces, their hair pulled into slicked-back buns with a headband and their bodies completely covered up for the most part in jersey draping, Chung’s speciality, here spun in an ultramodest, intellectual direction. It was a very specific look — perhaps too forced — with a lot of turtlenecks, some on tight tops with a twist at the bust; others in languid dresses that swamped the girls’ bodies.

Stunning minimalism, clean lines, beautiful movement, detail of the leather against other fabric. The colourpalette in general is quite soft to the eyes, adaptive while the shapes are elegant to the point of being stoic.

It does look very fall / winter and the colors and the drapping are beautiful.

Great movements in the clothes, quite basic looks but still appealing. Yet the color palette is way too tame even for Fall that it kinda kills the excietement for me.

As usual, Doo Ri impresses: this is so sophisticated and wearable at the same time. I love some of the spidery web cut outs and the moss-olive green is a nice shot of colour. Beautiful collection.

Very pretty draping.. and lines.

She's good for winter collections.. I wish her vision translated this well for summer ideas.
