So maybe you are not part of the Give Me a Fur Muffler contingent; General Idea still has some ideas for you. Shitloads of them, in fact. This daunting lookbook from Korean-based designer Bumsuk Choi, shows an Autumn/Winter 2012 collection full of possibilities.
Trousers with knee pad details, parkas accented with quilted fabrics, and a varsity jacket with toggle buttons are key pieces that illustrate the accessible, yet singular approach to the collection. Footwear for the season includes refreshing takes on all-purpose heavy-duty cold weather boots in the namesake collection as well as a performance sneaker in collaboration with Head.
We admire the sharpness of his sportswear and really like the sense that, with any amount of mixing and matching, you can create looks with vastly different levels of daring. That still does not mean you will spot us in fur mufflers any time in the near future.
