For some reason, this collection reminds me of both Calvin Klein and Donna Karan, with a little Diane Von Furstenberg thrown in. The simple but structured shapes and clean lines were vaguely reminiscent of 90s minimalism
Color Palette: Black, white, silver, with some cranberry red thrown in. The models’ makeup had similar warm reddish tones to it, which helped to heat up an otherwise icy collection.
Textures and Details: Again with the liquid silver dresses – there was plenty of satin and silk charmeuse. Opera length leather gloves were the standout accessory.
Key Looks: Pencil skirts, very defined, belted waists, and blousy tops and jackets were the main silhouettes. The oversized jackets with bracelet length sleeves were fabulous paired with narrow bottoms – particularly the black leather numbers. Flowy, goddessy evening dresses were the nighttime uniform of the Y & Kei girl, and there were also little knee-length satin dresses for a more casual but still glamorous look.
Overall Impression: Chic and sleek clothes for city girls.
