For resort, Yeohlee Teng showed one of her strongest collections — filled with the cleverness of cut that is her signature. Some of it was accomplished with subtle construction, while other looks were more visibly daring. The designer described it all as “pieces with a twist” — the loose box-cut shirt in white cotton with three pockets; the jean jacket in black microfiber with volume-creating, back bellows; the shorts, gently curved in lavender microfiber, with a slight bloomer effect.
“It’s difficult to do innovative cuts that are wearable,” said Teng. She showed long, ostensibly simple Cupro T-shirt dresses that, she explained, “are harder to do than it looks. Simple clothes are often more challenging in a way because they have to be perfectly balanced.” The collection also featured water-repellant grid-printed shirts and jackets teamed with lean skirts in cityscape patterns, and an easy shirtdress in a fine pin-striped stretch cotton. And, of course, there were the requisite raincoats.
