It’s that time of the year again.
Fashion Week heralds the beginning of the industry’s seminal migration to the fashion capitals of the world. Bloggers, editors and fashion enthusiasts worldwide make the trek each September to New York to preview and fete the styles that will be all the rage in stores next season.
One designer who has become a perennial favorite is YUNA YANG.
I’ve been a fan of Yuna Yang for a few seasons now. There’s something about her interpretation of femininity that really intrigues me. Last spring, the New York-based designer created a collection that married traditional couture with a very modern yet chic aesthetic. A year later, with the debut of her Spring 2015 collection, Concept, Yang has done it again.
Drawing inspiration from the post- World War II era, where everyone was in a state of positive change. The consumerism and the idea to “Buy American,” was in full force. Post WWII also marked the second wave of the women’s liberation movement was in full swing and the return of fashion to the world stage. A new soft feminine silhouette with Christian Dior’s “New Look” emerged with long sweeping skirts, fitted waists and rounded shoulders.
Yuna Yang’s Concept collection strives to evoke those feelings of positivity and hopefulness with a collection that is classic with a modern fun twist— the designer’s signature style. Featuring soft feminine pieces such as a floral print pant, a taffeta cape dress and Giang Han check shirt dress, this collection is perfect for the fashion forward vintage enthusiast.
