Yiqing Yin Spring Summer Couture 2013

Chinese-born French designer Yiqing Yin delivered an avant-garde collection, channelling Russian architect Naum Gabo’s kinetic art influences through a number of her pieces. The collection saw dresses sculpted from thick, dark red ropes, through to delicate numbers with contrasting thread-work hanging on the body like second skin – reminiscent of the blood-pumping network of veins that keep us alive.

Yin maintained the decorative and constructed display with skilled pleated constructions via intricate silhouettes ranging from two-piece suits to plunging mini-dresses. The notable theme of thread-work extended as far as partially covering models’ faces with long silver strands right through to the finale – a shredded shroud encasing and transforming the model into an almost otherworldly being.
