Concept Korea: LEYII by Seunghee Lee Fall 2015

FW15 CONCEPT KOREANEW YORK, Feb 16, 2015/ — Titled “Pur-Ensemble”, the LEYII Fall 2015 collection is a minimalist take on contemporary silhouettes.

The concept for the collection is actually in the title. “Pur-Ensemble,” combines the word ‘Pur’ meaning pure and ‘Ensemble’ meaning to be in harmony. LEYII’s pieces are an expression of designer Seunghee Lee sense of balance of construction, detail and fabric.

And Seunghee Lee did not disappoint. Sending tailored pieces that took elements from menswear then made them feminine by draping and expert cuts of the material, the LEYII Fall 2015 collection transcends age and geographical location for women around the globe.

Women from 18 to 80 living in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia can easily relate to this collection. And with a color palette of beige, gray and blue, the pieces are very easy to fall in love with.

Seunghee Lee is a Korean, London based designer. Seunghee moved to London at an early age and graduated from London College of Fashion with BA First Class Honor Degree in womenswear.

Following her BA Graduate show, she completed her MA in womenswear from Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design. After successful MA graduation, she took charge of several collections for Samsung Fashion Department then worked as the creative director at a bespoke tailoring house.

She collaborated with photographer Giles Bensimon for Elle Korea Magazine April 2009.
