Spring / Summer 2011

Shao Yen's sophomore collection draws inspiration from human anatomy, a theme the designer has previously explored in his BA graduate collection in 2008. How the body is opened up and how the tissues and organs are laid out in old anatomical drawings have inspired the garment structures. Technically, Skin is a continuation of Shao Yen's previous collection but, with the introduction of leather and color, seems more restrained yet playful.
