We’re excited about the modernist spin that doo.ri Chung put on her Pre-Fall 2012 collection with a nod to contemporary artist, Cecil Touchon.
Chung’s notorious draping and tailoring are apparent as she explores
what she calls confident feminine luxury.” We love the subtly of the
details and the bold sensibility of Touchon-inspired prints enhance the
simple silhouettes. Looking for something to wear to the next gallery
opening on your social calendar? Done! http://magazine.modaoperandi.com/2011/12/23/touche-touchon/

Doo-Ri Chung is an art buff. Her recent collections
have referenced the works of Aubrey Beardsley (Spring) and Sonia
Delaunay (Resort), and now it's the contemporary collagist Cecil
Touchon's turn for pre-fall. Touchon's graphic influence was evident in
the laser-cut geometric punctures on the neck and hemline of a simple
black shift, as well as in the blown-up and micro "confetti" prints used
throughout the lineup. For the most part, Chung played it safe,
sticking with her strong suits (draping, jersey, and that top-selling
trenchcoat), although she did tweak her template slightly, cutting a few
pieces from a sturdier, bonded jersey that added sculptural appeal.
Experimenting with unexpected volumes and shapes worked out well here
for Chung: The standout look was an emerald wool topper with a
cocoon-ish silhouette and dégradé needle punching, which came over a
mixed sequin dress.
