NYFW Feb ’14: DAY 2 – Lee Jean Youn AW 14

Lee Jean Youn‘s AW 14 collection was about redefining what it means to be a modern woman of style in New York City. The show comprised of 30 looks using every combination of fabrics imaginable, pairing contrasting textures like black silk organza and wool pelt mix. Tightly strapped, revealing bodices were hidden under oversized wool coats and what you’d assume would be a jarringly dichotomous look was pulled off effortlessly by Youn. The thigh high stockings and spiky heels sported by every model served as further testament to Youn’s adherence to his elegant yet edgy vision.

The standout piece of the show was a cropped leather bodice with a denim draped skirt, topped with a wool pelt hat with feathers that stood straight up:
