Oversized menswear pieces juxtaposed with billowy volume in blacks, browns and navy sums up South Korean designer Moon Young Hee’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection. The combination of romantic, overflowing chiffon fabrics combined with relaxed tailoring created a medium between the masculine and the feminine, softening structured silhouettes.

After a trail of black and brown ensembles, the soft, creamy, marshmallow-like pieces that came as oversized jackets and pants were a treat. As one who believes in wearing whites and creams in winter, I found them to be a breath of fresh air, deliciously interrupting the darkness of black hues that are more typically worn in the cold season, especially in Paris.

The theme throughout Hee’s fall/winter 2014 collection was large proportions– oversized jackets, wide-legged pants and thick trenches with enough volume to bundle up in. Personally, while Hee’s designs are not typically the type of silhouette I would normally choose for myself, I enjoy the thought of comfort and movability in them. The theme of comfort is also reinforced through the choice of Creeper shoes, square-shaped, flat loafers that all the models wore throughout the show.

Moon Young Hee is a South Korean designer based in Paris who released her own namesake brand in 1992. She is known for her neutral colors, monochromatic schemes and her take on deconstructed womenswear.
