A half-azure-half-yam-orange leather jacket paired with British check trousers opened Eudon Choi’s latest show. It perfectly encapsulated the designer’s ideas for the season: sharp tailoring with multi-faceted coloring and streamlined silhouettes. For Fall 2019, Choi dipped his toes into the 1970s phenomena and brought back elegant suiting and sophisticated outerwear. Along the way, he brought a few pops of color with him, such as bright tangerine, dark crimson, and an eye-popping shade of lime green. The latter was so vivid on a well-cut pantsuit that people in the front row couldn’t help but snap it on their phones. There was a melodious energy felt throughout this presentation; a sort of empowered femininity that, while slightly nostalgic, was undeniably current and contemporary. The shapes were so distinct and rigid that you can’t help but feel slightly intimidated but still so enamored by their engaging silhouettes. All in all, we see this line as a big winner of the season!
