Since establishing his sleek label in 2016, Creative Director Rok Hwang has captivated the fashion industry through meticulous silhouettes and structural expertise. For Spring/Summer 2022, Hwang's tailoring brilliance was once again on full display — this time in the form of subverted gowns and streamlined workwear.

Set behind the sprawling backdrop of the Petit Palais Museum of Fine Arts in Paris, models walked to a mashup of futuristic beats and 1970s hits like "White Rabbit," while donning Hwang's signature separates. 

Fashion-wise, the collection merged signature house styles — deconstructed tailoring and workwear elements — with a slew of slinky separates and reimagined dresses. Not only incorporating new sartorial ventures like cutouts and asymmetrical silhouettes,

Hwang also debuted opera length gloves that arrived in vibrant palettes of deep blue, jet black, and pastel pink. Continuing in the sphere of accessories, layered belts were featured over outerwear and coordinating mini bags accompanied the more playful looks.

As always, Hwang's tailoring was the centerpiece of the collection. From reimagined trench coats to corset-inspired blazers, the designer's unrivaled knack for pushing the boundaries of silhouette shone throughout the enigmatic collection.

Along with a bevy of pieces that hinted at the DNA of Rokh, the label also toyed with an increasingly eclectic aesthetic. With pastel skirt sets and bunches of feathers cascading from embellished blouses, Hwang is smartly adding a new lighthearted archetype to his distinct lexicon.

Along with the majority of the fashion industry, Rokh is looking ahead to a post-pandemic future that fuses elements of comfortable workwear with daring stylistic notions. And for Creative Director Rok Hwang, that future consists of belted flowing gowns, asymmetrical suiting, and reimagined classics.
