Ji Oh RTW Fall 2014

The Korean born newcomer has a specific point of view, one she described as “modern, clean and androgynous.”

Ji Oh RTW Fall 2014

New on the New York calendar is Ji Oh, who showed a tight lineup of off-beat, androgynous tailoring on Monday. It was an impressive start for the Korean-born designer who’s been based in New York for nine years. She studied at Central Saint Martins in London and Parsons The New School for Design in New York, where she graduated in 2008.


After working with various stylists, including Jackie Astier, Oh launched the contemporary label Shadowconnected in 2010, but this season repositioned and renamed the collection for the designer market, with prices ranging from $200 to $1,200.


The clothes project a strong point of view: “The direction is for the artistic, cultured woman in her late 20s,” said Oh. “It’s about sophistication and a bold but quiet statement. Nothing flashy.” Lines are modern and clean. Pieces include boyish and boxy wool suiting (which Oh showed over luxurious white T-shirts), crepe de chine silk blouses and cashmere knits in elongated silhouettes, all worked in a neutral palette with a less-is-more vibe.


The outerwear, too, is done in nonchalant yet sophisticated cuts. A black wool maxi coat features an asymmetric hem while a military green one, also in wool, has a simple navy collar. For novelty items, there’s a cool navy jacket that comes padded and cropped and a collared style in cream lamb fur. Retailers are not yet confirmed.
