System makes its Parisian debut at Paris Men’s Fashion Week with its Autumnal collection after almost thirty years since its inception in Korea, where today it is a widely established fashion brand with a strong, transversal following.
Autumn/Winter 2019 is presented today on a boxing ring, as models stand in couples, one fronting the other. Both the men’s and the women’s collections are featured. Duality is the byword, as contrasting elements are united in one single garment, giving pieces a double personality that makes for a bold visual impact. VS, as in verses: this is how it is all summed up. Denim jackets and sweatshirt spawn knitted sleeves, while denim pants sports inserts cut from denim jackets and pleated skirt mold a silk half with a leather half. Zippers recur at the hem of trousers or as a functional detail that allows reconfiguring outerwear. Tailored coats and jackets in big volumes have a brutalist metropolitan appeal that is highlighted by the muted palette of charcoals, blacks and beiges lit by dashes of red. Looks are layered for maximum impact, bringing the duality theme to a bigger scale. The overall image is one of sophistication, with an urban edge.
