Spring / Summer 2012

Following the sporty, glamourous Goddess Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, Shao Yen takes on some darker, grittier inspirations for Spring/Summer 2012. The latest collection, titled "Sseddog" (Goddess in reverse), not only takes references from tribal, punk, but also bondage and streetwalkers' styles. The title suggests a theme worlds apart from the fairy goddesses, while the raw and handcrafted DIY spirit is expressed in the details of rough edges and through techniques such as binding, knotting, and layering. The collection lineup is also inspired by and wish to explore how exposing different parts of body can create different aesthetics and meanings.
