CLARA SON
FALL/WINTER 2022 COLLECTION

South Korean-born menswear designer Clara Son is bringing earth tones back to autumn with her F/W ‘22 collection. Muted oranges and greens dressed models in thick fabrics and thin silks to make up a breathable collection of pieces for next season. 

 

The presentation was interrupted by daring performance art choreographed by Vivake Khamsingsavath in which nearly-nude models displayed contemporary dance to tell a story through audience engagement. Just as the performance art disrupted the state of the presentation, Son’s newest collection of reflective textiles and baggy jumpsuits is sure to alter the state of menswear this fall.
