Fashion Week: Hyden Yoo

What: 1920's romantic neocolonialism. Easy separates that channel a bit of the John Fitzgerald flair.
Take away: Yoo, inspired by the Oscar nominated film L'amant, created a collection that draws inspiration from "the romantic affiliation between an expat and a native," or so say the press release. What that means are clothes made of light fabrics that are great for travel and yet exudes a sense of relaxed elegance: a great trench coat transformed into a cape, white floor-length skirts paired with an easy knit, jackets thst are cropped and thrown-on.
What we love: The sense of easy elegance with a laissez-faire attitude.
