NYFW: Big Park S/S 2015 Presentation – Wish You Were Here


DSC_0545The dramatic arched foliage that greets guests entering the Soho Mondrian was the first step into a magical presentation reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland at Wimbledon, by the always whimsical, street-edged style of South Korean label Big Park.

Set a top the penthouse roof, Big Park’s Spring 2015 fashion presentation on Sept 4, 2014 opened to models perched high on individual platforms, as if to mirror the skyscrapers behind them, with the Freedom Tower the centerpiece of this most magnificent New York City backdrop, a nod to Big Park’s street style roots.

Like the elusive white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, the signature throughout the collection included embroidered bunny motifs adorned on sweaters, and handbag accessories and most of the models wore custom shoes showcasing the endearing bunny patchwork. Abstract watercolor designs on familiar spring pastels of pink, yellow, aqua and neon green, were given a raw edge accented with black mesh, belts and dramatic striping.

The sporty jackets were angular and cropped, with ruffling A-line skirts and shirts equally playful yet defined. Visors and high pony-tails with white crisp collars also reminded of chic tennis match opponents.

Created in 2012, established designer Park Youn Soo broke from his traditional line to create something new and different with Big Park in 2012 – drawing inspiration from street style from all around the world, and embracing a more multicultural approach to his line. Typically one of the 4 designers presented as part of New York Fashion Week’s Concept Korea’s show, Big Park broke again from the norm this Fall to present his alluring showcase of sporty, designer street wear for his own show “Wish you were here.” And to everyone who missed it, we really wished you were.
