Beginning his menswear design career in sparkling and vivacious Seoul and ‘careering’ headfirst into British womenswear, Eudon Choi’s 16-piece collaboration with high street giant River Island is earmarked for an AW13 drop…
Eudon Choi is the resident, London-based, South Korean-born designer known synonymously for his clean, masculine aesthetic teamed with luxurious fabrics and to-die-for colour palettes. Whilst still perceived as a young, emerging designer, Choi has already enjoyed stints at All Saints, Twenty8Twelve and, of course, his own label.
His collaboration with River Island sees a signature use of soft butter-esque leathers, streamlined pieces and a hard-hitting biker detailing. Inspiration is noted from photographs shot by Peter Linderberg in 1991, named ‘Wild at Heart’.
“As an emerging designer, the opportunity to work with a major high street retailer is an incredible opportunity,” says Choi. “My mainline collections are sold in high end stores and I love the idea that people all over the UK will be able to buy this collection.”
Eudon Choi for River Island lands on 23 September 2013. Prices range from £30-£150.
