New York City-based fashion designer Ji Oh is strengthening “unisex” style offerings in the next seasons ahead. The designer’s eponymous label has previously focused on borrowing menswear style inspirations and translating them into masculine-informed womenswear. But the newly-released Ji Oh Fall 2019 collection lookbook is filled with more androgynous style inspiration and gender ambiguity.
In a series of black and white photo shoot images and some vintage-looking color snaps, the brand’s newest urban, street style-ready garments are presented on male and female models. Ji Oh is known for asymmetrical silhouettes and gender neutral pieces, so the crisp shirts, tailored jackets, and kilt-style skirts feel right at home in this collection’s range.
“My parents dress very clean and classic, and my mom used to tell me that clothes shouldn’t out do one’s own beauty… so I learned to appreciate subtlety,” the designer has previously shared. “I also used to play in front of the mirror with my dad’s suit jacket a lot when he was getting ready. I was so fascinated by its structure and body. I guess it got me into all the androgynous things I love now. I find my inspirations everywhere.”
