Yeohlee Fall 2009

yeohlee1Yeohlee- In a tight line up of 23 looks Yeohlee Teng presented her answer to recession dressing. The focused collection was true to the spirit of Yeohlee: structured, wearable clothing that relies on cut and construction in lieu of ornamentation and fluff. It should be noted, this is what Teng does best- great coats and jackets with a minimalist luxe that feel timeless. In the way of suiting the collection offered a clear message: a gentle boot leg pant with a long jack with ample lapels. Teng posed the body suit as this season’s staple, showing it in both black and a metallic Lurex. The body suit served as a building block for the designer staple tunics and poncho-esque pieces. Amid the proliferation of charcoal and black there was a glint of hope (perhaps a node to brighter time ahead) in the way of metallic lurex jersey used to great affect for easy cocktail wear. The shinning line-up included a blouson sleeved-tent dress, an asymmetrical hem dress and a body suit with matching draped top.

This season Teng offered a series of desirable yet practical options for real life.
