On the men’s runway, Juun.J delivered a Spring/Summer 2017 collection primed and perfected for his cult street-cool following. This season explored the fighter pilot suits (or ‘G suits’) of the Forties and Fifties as a catalyst to the Korean designer’s latest offerings, all with his signature ‘Street Tailoring’ style and several extra-large parachutes. Complete with knits and parkas, oversize pockets and cargo pants, the look of this collection was technical and tailored yet bold and entirely off-kilter. The colour spectrum, however, didn’t stray too far from the militant hues, but what Juun.J lacks in variety here he makes up for in texture. His staple leather and denim layering offered a solid step away from the sometimes hard-to-grasp parachutes and transitioned into a balanced play on the designer’s expertise in tailoring.
