"That's a beautiful, beautiful dress," one editor gushed as the Doo.Ri closer look - actually a sleek camel-coloured, tie-back halter over a floorlength seamed skirt - was sent down the runway at Eyebeam Atelier. Dress or no dress, we had to agree. And paired with 28 other looks from a collection featuring lots of smooth draping (Doo-Ri Chung's specialty), slick details, and a bit of sequins, the look proved that this designer can deliver season after season.
The Doo.Ri show alternated between navy pantsuits with draped swashes; sheath minidresses encrusted with thick, brightly coloured sequins; and Tilda Swinton-ready full-lenth sleeveless gowns. To boot, Chung added the oversized fur coats (this time, embellished with sequins and embroidery at the neckline), bold crystal-splashed leggings, and the occasional velvet top. All pieces of great comfort, we say, for days when a woman needs to style her best. And the fact that Chung sent her models out with handpainted platform heels and lips covered with blue and green glitter? Well, that just proves Chung has a few playful tricks up her sleeve.
