A quintessential collection that fits the wardrobe of a modern women. "Women of today wants to look and be powerful. The collection is all about power dressing" says the designer himself.
Colors were masculine, urban and modern. Such as stone, sand, slate, navy, sage and black. Utterly not the usual palette of Justin Yap, whose known for his bright bold jewel tones. "I wanted a change this time. Fashion should be intuitive, and I work with my instincts at most times".
Luxurious light to heavy weight materials such as Italian cotton, crepe satin, silk organza, lambskin and cotton jacquard were used. Hand embellished beading details depicting the leopard pattern were seen on some of his pieces, this softening the austerity of the garments, giving them a refreshing artisanal touch.
