Architectural Aesthetics

Despite AW13 being her only third namesake collection, Rejina Pyo already has a number of accolades to her name. The Korean womenswear designer was hired as the first assistant designer for Roksanda Ilincic immediately after her graduation from CSM, had her MA collection reproduced by Weekday, won the Han Nefkens Fashion Award in 2012, and fused fashion and sculpture for her ‘Structural Mode’ installation at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. When this London-based creative isn’t busy working on her own label, she acts as a womenswear designer and consultant for Christopher Raeburn and a womenswear lecturer.

As far as her designs go, Pyo’s SS13 collection took on a more wearable approach to her trademark architectural aesthetic, showing a range of lightweight denim, linen and sheer organza fabrics cut into clean-lined and graphic shapes. For AW13 she delved even more into fabric experimentation: faux mink fur, twill patterned wool, silk jacquard and laminated cotton in colours of navy and burgundy offered up a luxuriously modern look. Judging by her elegant yet approachable creations, the future can only hold bright things for this young designer.
