YEOHLEE Fall 2015 is inspired as much by the times that we live in as by the women who navigate and affect them. Yeohlee works on problem-solving, egress and navigation as well comfort and sensuality in her design process. Zero-waste and conservation of time, energy and material has always been part of the YEOHLEE ethos.
Look 1, a black and white forest patterned cotton jacquard is part of a series of 4 designs – a jacket, pants, skirt and top, Look 6, which has its yoke constructed from a left-over panel from which the jacket in Look 1 was cut.
A matte black polyurethane fabric, which has always been part of YEOHLEE’s fifth season collection, is contrasted with a stenciled cotton material, giving the coat structure and extra protection with a double-breasted buttoned panel that conceals a separating zipper, Look 3.
The red stripe cotton dress presents a Sol Lewitt moment in Look 5.
The collection is enhanced by essential items like the lustrous black crew and turtlenecks in a cupro jersey with a delicious hand, as well as simply cut black gabardine pants in Looks 3 and track pants in Look 10.
YEOHLEE’s dress up clothes are simple and friendly. She uses a water color print in grey black and white wool/cotton tank under a cozy chunky grey/black knit kebaya with three large snaps, Look 11.
The collection is a celebration of material, craft in cut and construction, joy in math and in honor of the dignity and grace of the women Yeohlee continues to dress.
