For his Rokh Spring/Summer 2021, the South-Korean designer Rok Hwang, born in Seoul (South Korea), raised in Austin (Texas), and educated at London’s Central Saint Martins, opted for a pre-recorded runway show, shot at a secret location.
In the film, models went through a dense fog that invaded the bleak, cavernous terrain – is that the bleak scape of the moon or Mars ? His thought going in was to capture how a young child feels walking in lonely places at night when anxiety, curiosity and imagination merge.
Entitled ‘’Night Wanderer’’, was an ode to fictional characters and the vivid imaginations of coming-of-age youths.

Inspired by Hwang’s lockdown reading of ‘’Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’’, the collection of the Phoebe Philo’s protégé explored the feminine silhouette and the process of layering a garment.
It was feminine and romantic, with an edge to the cut and silhouette while the colour palette started dark and then went wild in a fantasy of bright acidics and pastels.
Hwang added then voluminous sleeves and large, hand-crafted collars and often finished looks with battle-ready leather harnesses.
