Eugenia Kim

Ahead of her brand’s 20th anniversary, Eugenia Kim took a reflective approach to her accessories by evoking a 1980’s era polo match which overall provided a whimsical atmosphere. Models wore high-cut black one-piece swimsuits and were adorned with straw hats as bags, visors, feathered footwear and giant bows. It was a touch of whimsy brought to a greed-is-good era heavy with masculine silhouettes — and to a spring season that has been more limited and dour than romantic and profuse.  Colorblocking has proven a popular option for designers for the spring/summer and is seen with Kim’s color-blocked flatforms and satin mules. The presentation offered guests the intimate chance to look at the accessories up close and spot the “Undercover” and “Dream On” embroidered on straw bags and hats, while 80’s synth-pop was pumped from speakers and rosé was on hand.
