Nevertheless, Saint Laurent is more focused on revealing the sexy DNA of the house than on the gorgeous campaign. St. Laurent’s campaign is chic, and the identity of the brand is clearly conveyed, so that if you pile up photos from all seasons, you will be able to complete a wonderful collection of black and white photos.

Pyo hails from Seoul and completed her MA in Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins in 2011. Her graduate show was widely praised by critics and she was quickly snapped up to be Roksanda Ilincic’s first assistant, where she worked for three years before setting up her namesake label in 2014.


This marked her brand’s first catwalk show

Rejina Pyo SS18

Although she started the brand over three years ago, SS18 marked Pyo’s first catwalk show, having previously opted for presentations. The setting was London’s Quaker Centre and despite the change in format, the collection was very in keeping with Pyo’s aesthetic, one that her legion of fashionable followers have come to love. 

She is a real favorite among influencers

Rejina Pyo SS18

In fact, you’ve probably been eyeing up plenty of her designs for seasons without even knowing it. Style mavens including Camille Charriere, Pandora Sykes and Lisa Aiken are all devoted fans of the brand, often wearing the pieces to shows or shouting about them on Instagram.


She is A Champion of Diversity

Rejina Pyo SS18

Pyo is one modern-day designer who is fighting against fashion’s issues with diversity, whether that be age, size or skin color. Ahead of her catwalk show, Pyo put out a casting call for “confident, unique and inspiring women of ALL ethnicities and ALL ages to participate in a very special paid project (the catwalk show) on the 19th of September”. 

Her clothes are wearable (and surprisingly affordable)

While Pyo’s collections are not high-street or even high-end high-street prices, they are certainly not as out of reach as some of the collections presented at LFW. You can pick up a pair of jeans for £270, suede loafers for £359 and the most desirable wool coat for £589. Best of all? The structured, statement pieces are unmistakably stylish, but they are designed for real women with real lives, not just for the catwalk.
