Paris Menswear July 06

PARIS, July 4, 2006 - Korean designer Wooyoungmi chose an old theater in Montmartre as setting for her show on Monday evening. Silhouettes fluttered from behind two transparent screens placed on either side of a ramp, as models trooped down and back, pausing briefly before an audience sipping cold green tea. Black suits, bowlers, jackets rolled up sleeves extended, a shirt with a built in vest on the back side: all of it seemed strangely uninspired this season. The color scheme of black, charcoal, navy and white grew heavy, looking at times more wintry than summery. Wooyoungmi always works with lots of detail, though much of the finer touches were lost to the eye-catching modern dance being performed behind the screens.
