With less than a week until December 25th, Sung Hee has gotten a jump on Christmas by opening her presents early. Yesterday, there was Sung Hee's Prada Spring 2013 campaign, delicately wrapped in Japanese floral print, perfect for the season ahead. Today's present — nestled inside a thick volume printed in Chinese — is a pair of portraits of the South Korean model by photographer Amy Troost in the January 2013 issue of Vogue China. Titled "Masculine Impression," the Alastair McKimm-styled story does what it says on the tin by serving up a series of menswear-inspired looks for spring.
To that end, Sung Hee wears an unfussy affair for her first look comprised of a men's Spring 2013 Balmain jacket in gray worn over a white top and gold belt. No menswear story would be complete, however without a trench coat. In the second picture, a Chloé Resort 2013 trench is draped over Sung Hee's shoulders atop a considerably busier ensemble than styled in the first shot. Taken together, both pictures give a masculine impression, a subtle suggestion, without ever deigning to go the Full Monty. If Christmas proves even half as promising as its lead-up for Sung Hee has been, then this will be a truly festive period.
