General Idea FW 16.

[NEW YORK CITY.]  Starting off NYFW Men’s a day late and I feel like I’ve missed nothing but sleep. If it wasn’t for Jordyn forcing me out of bed I legit would still be lost in my dreams. Of course, South Korea has some of their best designers representing their eccentric talent here in New York. It’s been almost a year and I still miss Seoul and cannot wait to return, yet Bumsuk Choi still satisfied my craving with his unique flavour he brought to Skylight Clarkson Sq. Even though I had no clue what to expect from General Idea I was still eager to go with an open mind.

Several pieces were out of my comfort zone with obnoxious detailing which is completely fine on others, just not with me – I’d look so out of place. It’s a niche that I haven’t really played with and wouldn’t mind seeing how it turns out. However, Choi did present a variety of options for his buyers and had me wide awake in wanting his oversized coats but the ones without any graphic patch. There might have been maybe six coats with these obnoxious patches that to me killed the jackets but who am I to judge. And again the loose fitted pant makes another cameo through out this collection. For me, I just can’t accept that concept still and most likely won’t ever. What I can accept in my life of sin is the oversized coats. Okay obviously, I just can’t get over the coats and may perhaps be obsessed at this point… The use of tan was the only pop of colour in the presentation with navy, grey, black and ivory.  The turtle neck was a noticeable theme in the line up of pullovers and jackets which is definitely needed in the cold months especially in Seoul and New York City.

Inherit Love,

General Idea. General Idea. General Idea.
