Inspired by Virginia Wolf’s essay A Room of Ones Own, Yuna Yang’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection juxtaposes the sophisticated style of a modern city woman and the luxurious fantasy of childhood. The primarily androgynous looks combined aspects of simplicity, luxury and fantasy to create a timeless and classic collection. Yang incorporated delicate laces and silks as well as understated draping and seaming to add feminine flare to her menswear pieces. The asymmetrical hemlines added a youthful aesthetic to her below- the-knee dresses and skirts, which were accented with hand beading to add one-of-a-kind detailing.
To contrast the soft aspects of the collection, Yang chose a color pallet of blues, greens and purples. Perhaps the most notable piece of the collection was the Ariel Beaded tie dress in a rich royal blue silk crepe, the oversized bow around the neck with its hand beading gives detail to the simple silhouette. It was effortlessly styled with a black leather belt and grey tights. Yang’s collection took the audience on a journey through every female’s fashion fantasy, complete with classical and extraordinary elements.
