For Fall 2010, Yeohlee visualizes artist Kazimir Malevich’s Black Circle springing out into a cylinder. This collection revels in a surrealist element of surprise and unexpected, playful juxtapositions. Strong geometric shapes are combined with soft nubby yarns, whimsical dots and plaids, and sleek hi-tech fabrications— topped off with handknit high hats. Yeohlee likes to imagine these clothes being worn in a postapocalyptic space station, by cadets making music with a saw.
