You may be caught in the daily grind (coffee, think outside the box, lunch, strategize touch points, cigarette, circle back on deliverables). But it set Suwha Hong free.
The globe-trotting Korean designer took a path less traveled to find her calling. After representing faceless corporations as a New York lawyer, she followed her right brain to Central Saint Martins and launched an all-business line of smart jackets and coats.
The fall collection celebrates proper English outerwear punctuated with playful details like big buttons and geometric-print linings. A fitted Aurelia camel jacket with stitched leather belts makes a fine first impression. Or wrap it up in the navy Viola trench. Trade in your staid black wool coat for Beatrice, a double-breasted, three-quarter-length style in blue.
It’ll make a fine asset for your exit strategy.
