Yeohlee Teng showed 16 pieces that were more a presentation of her cleverly cut signature items than a cohesive collection.

A focus would have helped overall, but her coats, always strong entries, were great. Take, for instance, the brick bonded wool, curve-bottom jacket with beige fake fur, shown with knit clam diggers and a good-looking Red Cross turtleneck and boy coat in charcoal felted wool.

Speaking of boys, Teng showed a few jackets and coats for men, inspired by “how great Harold Koda looks in the jacket I made for him,” said the designer, referring to her friend’s short black and gray jacket — which seemed a natural direction for Teng to go with her sporty unfettered looks.
