COLLECTION / Bei Kuo

 

Bei Kuo S/S 15

Taiwanese designer Bei Kuo released her  Spring/ Summer 2015 that identified her as one of the designers to watch this season. I thought the subtle embossed Japanese characters are clever. The compactness of the  anti-fit silhouette of pants & sweaters turned me on along with the contrasts of matte and iridescence. This is what I envision when the words  menswear and future are mentioned. Statements have been very big for the past few seasons and the emerging designer used phrases like "You Do Not Exist " and "Love Without Heart"  which may seem profound and personal for the designer. Although she may not consider herself as a designer, her vision extends far from the business side all the way to the realm of art and it doesn't require her to be anything loud. Her artistry is her market.
