Key Takeaways: Ladylike separates and dresses in neutral colors. Doo Ri Chung mixed materials, pairing shimmery with matte, and brought structured and drapey silhouettes into harmony. Our take? It’s not the kind of collection that will Wow fashion editors. However, we loved it for it’s unashamed wearability.
Color Palette: Neutral. Lots of Gold, Tan, Blush and White.
Silhouettes: Pencil-thin skirts, Wide-legged pants, Empire waistlines, Trapeze dresses, Trenchcoats.
What’s Wearable: Most everything. We Loved Doo Ri’s dresses, in particular.
What’s Not Wearable: Some of the pieces, though tame for the runway, were still too voluminous for streetwear. Also, beware of silk charmeuse and other shiny fabrics, as they accentuate any bulges and make the wearer look larger.
