Rejina Pyo hosted the London Aquatic Centre’s opening show. She presented Team GB Olympic divers in diving, and then she showcased bold daywear that is casual yet elegant.
There were many types of silhouettes, from bodycon dresses to large trench coats to loose shirts. They all represented different perspectives on femininity. Form-fitting, gathered camis, and loose-fitting dresses were contrasted by silk chiffon blouses, flowing, long-legged trousers, and other items were made using intricate intarsia knit techniques.
You can mix and match cami tops and shorts, and structured coats and sailor collars offer many layering options.
The denim two-piece held its own against the slew of brightly colored dresses and loose-fitting pieces. This is a clear representation of Pyo’s organic Italian denim crafting. The collection’s distinctive 70’s style elements were reflected in its exaggerated collar, large belt buckle and wide neck. The retro vibe was further enhanced by the use of vintage-inspired prints in dresses and sized up knit tops.
The lineup also included swimwear, featuring a two-toned color scheme for the poolside. Pyo’s commitment towards sustainable practices was reflected in the inclusion of items made from recycled nylon from Italy.
Vivid and neon colours were mixed with earthy, natural tones. Deep blue denim pieces were scattered throughout the line. Pyo captured photo collages on previous trips to New York, Seoul and created prints. One print included trash bags that was used as a casual shirt. Some items featured more bizarre motifs, such as a camidress printed with images of everyday objects like cars and chairs, or even a cartoon mouse.
There were new footwear and accessories, including some summer shoe designs that added slickness to the overall collection. There were a pair of square-toed leather flip flops, chunky rubber slides, and a platform sandal with two straps. Bright transparent clutches paired with larger, frayed straw totes made of bright materials boosted the collection’s dynamic.
The final look was a completely sheer, mesh dress with sparkles. It accentuated the simple silhouette and emphasized its simplicity. Although the cami was a stark contrast to other brighter and more eccentric looks, it still showed Pyo’s feminine side.
