Milan Fashion Week: MÜNN (S/S 2022)

MÜNN, a South Korean brand that distinguishes itself through innovative designs and unconventional approaches to garment-sewing, unveiled its Spring/Summer (S/S) 2022 collection in Milan Fashion Week. Launched by the creative director Hyun-min Han in 2013, the Join Life-labelled brand stands out through its intricacy and environmentally-conscious garments. MÜNN showcased its latest collection through a video titled Io sono l'amore, which embodied the brand’s philosophy of "DEFAMILIARIZATION" and was inspired by Luca Guadagnino's films <I Am Love> and <A Bigger Splash>'s sunlight-abundant cinematography.

Sumptuous interiors served as a glam backdrop to a number of looks, which were created through Jacquard-made patterns and woven leopard fabrics, illuminating the bold and chic aesthetic of the newest collection. The incorporation of leopard patterns into divergent fabrics and garments, ranging from men’s trousers to a woman’s lightweight blouse, demonstrated the brand’s creative experimentation with the same type of pattern to create multifaceted designs. The tweed set-ups created a soft yet sophisticated outfit that encapsulated the freshness of the S/S season, with the thinly woven fabric displaying an elaborate blend of various pastel colours. Various semi-formal jackets and bright-coloured blazers were worn by the models in combination with elements of formal wear, showcasing MÜNN’s effortlessly elegant versatility.
