Rokh‘s Fall/Winter 2024 collection, presented by designer Rok Hwang, is a captivating exploration of contrasts. Hwang masterfully blends modern deconstructed staples with historical references from the High Renaissance and Romanticism eras. The result? A collection that feels both refreshingly new and undeniably rich in heritage.

Hwang explains his inspiration: “The Renaissance was about pursuing the perfect body shape, which represents perfection for me. While Romanticism is about being imperfect. I think the clashes between the two can bring something sharp. I thought that was the idea of beauty with this collection.”

This concept of embracing imperfection translates into a playful juxtaposition of elements. Think Victorian dresses layered beneath slashed-up jackets, or ruched velvet dresses paired with edgy zipped bombers. It’s a departure from Hwang’s previous, more structured aesthetic, offering a wider range of silhouettes and textures that cater to a broader audience.

The collection also marks a shift away from Hwang’s signature trench coats. This season, he repurposes or disguises them, showcasing his innovative approach to classic pieces. He further expands his design vocabulary by incorporating denim, velvet, and knits alongside traditional tailoring materials.

A standout element is the debut of a footwear collaboration with Phileo, featuring a unique square-toe loafer inspired by a ballerina shoe. Available in “tofu,” “shitake,” and black, these playful shoes add another layer of intrigue to the collection.
