The ones who ask themselves what it feels like to have butterflies in the stomach, should have a look at Lie Sang Bong's spring/summer 2013 collection, where butterflies – if they're not flapping their wings in the belly – were at least on the runway, adding a fluttery feeling to Paris' last day of ready-to-wear.

These multicolored insects adorned Bong’s first two silhouettes on the runway and returned now and then as a colorful motif on a dress or a maxi-print on a white trench-coat, being the recurrent element of his new collection and therefore setting a cheerful and somewhat naïve tone – next to the heart-shaped faux-polka print.

“I was inspired by my childhood in the 60s and used the butterfly as a symbol of transformation. I wanted to show how something very classical can switch to contemporary aesthetics,” stated the designer backstage.

What looked rather audacious at first glance, might have been a bit overloaded once you had a closer look at Sang Bong's first silhouettes, that said the designer quickly opted for less kitsch by offering vivid houndstooth maxi-prints in primary colors on bold and structured dresses, inspired by the clean lines and shapes of the 60s. Harmonious combinations of patterns highlighted Sang Bong's impeccable tailoring using mainly wool and silk cotton, while multiple charming cutouts on the shoulder area of jackets and shirt-dresses, as well as peplum pencil skirts and bodicon dresses, emphasized the femininity of this sweet and summery collection. Who knows if Sang Bong's collection really left the audience with butterflies in their stomachs, but at least you could finally see smiles on the front row-faces for this last day of Paris fashion week.
