Designer: Yegang Yoo SS09

We're particularly impressed that this spring/summer 2009 collection by Korean born, Brooklyn based, young designer Yegang Yoo is just her second ever official collection. Yoo is a graduate of Parsons in New York, and in this collection we love the subtlety of the draping and tailoring, with unexpected twists like the asymmetric cut-out on the back of the white waffle material dress, or the tailored jacket lapels on the asymmetric white wrap dress. There's a soft beauty to the collection, but the minimalist aspect, the elements of sharp tailoring, and the monochrome colour pallet keep it feeling sharp at the same time. A very promising start from a designer whose name we will be listening out for more in the future.
