Two years ago, it was a show of urban silhouettes, dark birds of prey in the raw décor of garage Turenne.
Then the work of the korean designer goes tailoring (see summer-spring 2012), season after season we saw more jackets, structured outfits.
For the autumn-winter 2012-2013, Juun J was showing in the classic salon of Gallery of Mineralogy in The Muséum.
If you judge a show by the level of applause, then Juun J.’s show was certainly a success and it was ! As many shows during the week (even after during Couture) the inspiration was taken from the past. For Juun J. it was the forties.
Exagerated volumes (large shoulders, XXL pants, cinched waists) and superpositions, Juun J. reinterpreted beautifully all his codes mostly on jackets and trench coats in an urban way.
Juun J. is trying to fill the gap between outerwear, sportswear and tailoring, creating a new suit. Undoubtedly he is one of the most exciting men’s designers of the moment. With the help of Samsung which bought the brand last year perhaps he will succeed where others talented designers failed.
Tapping into the past, the show was very modern and dynamic, the boys were fierce but no arrogant.
Very inspired, Juun J goes white in the last part of the show with new silhouettes, a bit futuristic, with large embossed tees upon long shirts upon shorts…

adding colors on accessories…
