Re: Siki Im
The Barcelona presentation was indeed a retrospective. I don’t think any of the featured pieces were from SS13 (and if I’m mistaken they were basics / staples). However, there is definitely a link between the Barcelona retrospective and his approach to his next collection. For Spring-Summer 2013 Siki has used some of his favourite / classic pieces as a starting point to refine and update his silhouette. From the beginning many of the details (such as hidden and covered closures) have been present but, I feel, his recent plays on volume and lengths have really helped him craft his own identity. So, a lot of SS13 takes those pieces and refines / plays with the silhouette. There are certainly completely new styles as well though (such as the sarouel pants that have been posted as well as a few pieces with detachable layers). Some great linens and washed Japanese cottons / wools are used.
Hey guys, I’ve been absent from the site for a bit, but I’m slowly starting to catch up again and I’ll have some more info / impressions / and pictures to share soon.
