February 13, 2024: Fashion designer Ashlynn Park made a triumphant return to her menswear roots with her Fall 2024 collection, debuting her first stand-alone men’s line alongside her latest women’s collection. The highly-anticipated showcase marked a significant milestone in Park’s career, as she sought to reconnect with her past and push the boundaries of contemporary fashion.
A Journey Back to the Beginning
After a successful run focusing on womenswear, Ashlynn Park found herself longing to revisit the world of menswear that first sparked her passion for design. Graduating from a prestigious fashion school, Park honed her skills working for industry giants Yohji Yamamoto and Raf Simons at Calvin Klein. This season, she chose to follow her heart and dedicate her time to realizing her long-held dream of creating a stand-alone men’s line.
The Art of Deconstruction
Park’s Fall 2024 collection showcased her meticulous design and attention to detail in both men’s and women’s styles. With an emphasis on tailoring, she deconstructed traditional menswear elements to reveal the intricate workings of the garments, exposing linings and internal structures. This innovative approach allowed Park to reinterpret classic silhouettes and create truly unique pieces.
Uniformity and Duality
In addition to her deconstructed tailoring, Park introduced her vision of a brand uniform: a neatly cropped jacket and a skort, embodying the collection’s theme of duality. This versatile ensemble could be effortlessly worn by both men and women, further blurring the lines between traditional gender norms in fashion. The women’s line also featured Park’s signature puzzle blouse, now perfected in gray pinstripe and black dresses.
The men’s line, still in its developmental stages, will be further teased in the coming seasons. Flou was not neglected in the fall line-up, with a rich burgundy V-neck dress and an alternative to a smoking look: a white draped dress worn over a black shirt with an asymmetric collar.
With her triumphant return to menswear, Ashlynn Park has once again proven her ability to captivate the fashion world with her innovative designs and keen eye for detail. As she continues to develop her stand-alone men’s line, fans and industry insiders alike eagerly await her next move.
