Irene SJ Yu SS18

Irene SJ Yu’s spring/summer collection 2018 is bold and charismatic, a fusion of fun holiday wear and office vibes. Earrings, hair and prints are large and loud, giving the collection subtle eighties feels.

 

In true Irene SJ Yu style, contrasts are at play everywhere; romantic ruffles and off-the-shoulder pieces are juxtaposed with sleek layers.

 

The layering itself has a huge, over-arching effect on the collection; trousers are slashed with cut-outs, tops flash shoulders and midriff and puffed sleeves in shocking colours grace arms.

 

The overall effect is an in-your-face, kitschy aesthetic; Irene SJ Yu succeeds in delivering bold, independent-woman worthy pieces that are at the same time romantic, flattering and playful.
