Doo.Ri Does Edgy Elegance For Fall 2011
>> Doo-Ri Chung switched things up for her Fall 2011 collection by injecting an edgy tailored touch to her signature draping skills. The look was described by Chung as "linear structure" and inspired by artist Beverly Semmes. Jersey gowns — Chung's bread and butter — were of course present, this time remixed with thigh-high slits and intricate cord macrame detailing. There, too, were more tailored pieces like felted wool coats, nylon jackets, trousers, and silk blazers. Meanwhile, fur jackets, cozy dolman sweaters, leather insets, and mohair embroidered tops added an overall textural quality to the collection. Stylist Beat Bolliger furthered the modern-vibed collection with a selection of chunky woven booties and racy lace-up thigh-high boots. No doubt, Chung has made a definite departure from her draping heavy collections in the past, and it's looking good.
