Hyden Yoo used debonair dressing and the sometimes overwhelming unattainable beauty of a woman to tell the story behind his Autumn/Winter 2012 collection. Set in a darkly wooded library with vaulted ceilings, models stood in clusters – the men in layers and the women dressed and ready to stay right there in the warmth of the fireplace – looking bored as can be. Though both sexes were polished and narcissistic in demeanor, the men were on a higher pedestal in my eyes.
Color palette: Muted browns and greys for the men. Women wore blues and purples with a floral print here and there.
Mood: Gossip Girl meets Ivy Leaguers in Vail
Statement Pieces: The men’s pieces stood out above the women’s
Front Row Name Drops: None of note
Runway Music: Bon Iver
