YEOHLEE's Spring 2016 collection plays on functional wearable clothes with subtle details as a form of seduction.
Fabrics are natural – silk and cotton and tech and chemical in polyester and polyurethane. The fabrics are jacquards, woven or knitted with some flocked and some bonded. The focus of each fabrication is in the weight and hand of the material. Each of the individual fabrics is enhanced by its color. They range from the whitest of whites to the darkest navy. Aqua and cobalt blue are a happy contrast to the white cotton, as are the appealing beach and desert sand tones set against white microfiber.
The collection takes a practical turn with a black rain jacket that has a separate button-to-collar hood that doubles as a scarf, Look 7. A rain skirt, Look 12, in the same material is paired with a white filigree baju. The simple dark navy dress in silk faille is subtly detailed by displacing the bust darts and creating two contrasting side panels. Playful cuts appear as 6”x 6” pockets in a coat, Look 14 and 12” x 12” sleeves in Look 16 within a collection shown on 4 girls in 16 looks on a platform that is 36”x 36” square and 6” high.
The clothes are meant to engage with the wearer and the designs to be activated by this engagement.
