For Demi Park, her SS17 collection begins from the space between her paintings and her clothing. The word “Appliqué” in French, directly translated into English, is “Applied Art“.
“Airness“, the Demi’s collection, is the two themes weaved together through patchwork patterns from Demi’s own paintings into reflecting “Air” as the source of cooling. That’s how the collection was born.
Indeed, the designer often questions the design process. Is the garment a functioning object or a piece of art? Airness plays on surface, texture and layers. We see the designer’s artwork intertwined between structure and fluidity, masculinity and femininity. The silhouettes bring together traditional Korean scholar uniforms for men with wide trousers in multitude of variations. The subdued colors of Grey and Black bring into light the abstract quality of “Air” with the reflecting hue of lightweight denim blue and stark white in cotton and gauze. 2017/" target="_blank">www.demoo.com
