Where are the hands?
|NOHKE (Seoul Fashion Week)|
At Kumann Yoo Hye Jin, the sleeves that ran long past the hands featured zippers that ran up to the forearms, in case you actually needed to use your hands.
Even short sleeves were exaggerated, ending mid-arm in a peplum, as was seen at Big Park.

Trench coats in disguise
|J Koo (Seoul Fashion Week)|
London-trained designers Choi Jin-woo and Koo Yeon-joo at J Koo serve up the classic trench coat in many variations, from an oversized, overly slouchy trench coat to a short cape and to a skirt that looks as though the top half of the coat had been cut off.
Elsewhere, trench coats were rendered in denim, looking smart with the stitching detail at Rubina, as well as in classic checkered wool fabrics.
Velvet was in heavy use, in the form of the more light-handed crushed velvet. Melding crushed velvet and felt produced a contrasting pattern at Jinteok, the velvet shimmering while the felt stayed mat.

Checks of all stripes were mixed and matched in a single look, sometimes in a single piece. Flying about on the runways were long swathes of faux fur used to a ritzy effect in the Miss Gee Collection where Gee Chun-hee, designer to the stars, used them on collars and sleeve-ends for just the right amount of glamour.
