Inspired by New York City and appropriately named Climate Change, Ann Yee’s spring 15 collection was a reflection of mother nature’s fickle demeanor in the Big Apple. Taking into account the functionality needed to survive these early months and looking good too, she told the season’s story through vignettes on the rooftop of the Refinery Hotel.
Clean silhouettes, often color blocked took architectural form and included pieces like the opal white geometric dress and the slate angle skirt. To balance the lineup, she paired these looks with her laid back signature knits designed in medium weight textiles that were finessed with striking texture. Using a range of what she calls a “maritime palette” of blues, coral, ivory, neutral and black, she was spot on in knowing what this urban dweller likes in transition colors. A prime example was the drop stitch hand-knit cardigan paired with a coral bermuda short. She also offered some dressed up looks, but still channeled a relaxed, effortless and of course, practical tone for the temperamental mood of the city that we’ve known to love.
