On a damp, Sunday (2/12) in the Meat Packing District, fashion lovers from all over waited for a chance to catch a glimpse at Saku New York’s Autumn Winter 2017 collection. Designer Lissa Koo did not disappoint.

Her collection perfectly mirrored the vibe in New York City that day; dark, quiet, and a bit cold. Inspired by the sea creatures that most humans rarely see below the blue surface of the ocean, Koo honed in on that mood by bringing the feeling that exists closer to the ocean floor through the black, emerald, and pops of pink colors throughout her collection.

While the silhouettes and patterns were fairly simple, each of the garments were adorned with frills, and moved down the runway the way ocean water softly hits the shore. Koo used velvet material throughout the collection to represent the color of sparkling sand.
Some of our favorite looks featured baby doll silhouettes, tops with cut out sleeves and sheer accents,
pleated skirts that revealed hints of lace when the garment moved, and coats with frills finely placed or puff sleeves. Special shout out to Koo for using diverse models to present her collection.

Koo’s collection was definitely a day at the beach. Not the sunny, lay in the sand kind of day, but the cool nights where the water looks like ink, and you need a blanket and a bonfire to stay warm while you listen to wind and watch the stars.

**Thanks Simone for covering the show!
