ZERO_UNDERSCORE | FALL / WINTER 2012
Hailing from Seoul, South Korea, Zero_Underscore debuted their primary collection this Fall / Winter.
Modernity was of the essence, with a selection of tailored pieces rejuvenated through leather inserts, architectural cuts and a keen consideration of proportion.
A palette of black and grey were fashioned into sharp suiting separates, forming the basis to a line focussed on construction and architectural elevation. The outerwear ranged from double-breasted overcoats to sleek and simple zip-front jackets, all with the signature tailored aesthetic. Matrix-esque jackets were cut on the a-line and fashioned with rolled trousers to just above the ankle, exposing high-shine boots laced up to and around the lower leg. Bowler hats and identity hiding sunglasses formed the basis to the accessories collection, and were worn with each look adhering to the eponymous sartorial look.
The silhouettes and cuts were proportional, unusual for an Asian design team where cuts are usually super-slim and tailored. Thus proving that Zero_Underscore is not a one trick pony, creating looks that are universally wearable.
