CHRISTINA YI'S SS14 COLLECTION: "DIMENSIONS OF PREY"


ARE YOU A PREY OR PREDATOR? THE ANSWER LIES AHEAD.





Christina Yi SS14 collection

On the day of Christina Yi's SS14 presentation, I almost didn't make it. White Space Chelsea, the location in which the unveiling took place, couldn't be more difficult to get to as you stomp your way across town in chunky Balenciaga boots. On the most uneven concrete streets you can imagine, might I add. Our efforts to hail a cab were only met with futility.

Upon arriving at the show, I only had a good 10-15 minutes to spare before my next appointment at Pier 59. I naturally gravitated towards the pieces that stood out most to me, particularly the "Prey" vs "Predator" ensembles. I thought those were very tongue-in-cheek and had a very well-executed high street aesthetic. I also quite adored the minimalist approach when it came to basics, like the overalls and white shirt/pant combination. Amongst some killer white on white motifs and a lustworthy LWD (little white dress -- did you spot that?), there was almost an ethereal-like quality to the collection. Christina, if you're reading this, I'll be needing that Prey sweater sooner than later!
