< STORY >
2014 Spring Summer collection is a dream of marshmallow and sky.
the sky crashed into pieces
The pieces fell into the glass box in the museum, becoming a meteorite, glittering with blue sky color.
On the next shelf
there are marshmallow mountains in pastel colors lining up
Pale pink, sky blue, apple green and cream white, all melted into strings, twisting and crisscrossing on the mountains.
a plant with strong green leaves passing through the curtain of that thick blue sky
The blue was kept by the green leaves, and upon the sky, all clouds were, therefore, created.
A Marshmallow Sky was there
out of the window
as the those pastel-color-stringed mountains
with all that mild, sheer, delicate and fair colors mixed and mashed up together.
From that place that the meteorite fell
we ride in a silver-white spacecraft
this feathery and misty, pastel Marshmallow Sky.

The story was presented by 3 different scenes in SS 2014.
Floating ruffles of sheer organza, soften the silhouette around body; stiff materials and fabrics with special texture, cut out a futuristic sense of white, grey and silver; organza in diverse tones layering together, as the layers of clouds in a marshmallow sky, create sophisticated structures in the garments.
The see-through effect of organza remains a major point in this season. See-through material always brings out inner structures of the cloth, and carries also the necessary lightness of summer.
This season, designer continued to combine elements in contrast. Floating organza curves and geometric blocks in rigid materials are matched together in the details, and also expressed by the way of styling, creating a silhouette, which is soft but clean.
