Yiqing Yin presented a poetic haute couture collection for Spring/Summer 2015. It was one of the best couture shows I attended in Paris in January 2015.
Yiqing Yin has made a step aside. After having explored her dreamlike world populated by mutating creatures for several seasons, filled with morphing characters – be they animal or vegetal – she has extracted their essence. She has recentered herself, thus focusing on form, fabric, and the self. As it were a return to the centre, the middle, the fragile point of equilibrium. An assertion of her codes. This collection is all about mediation.
The body is at the centre of everything. The body as the stakeholder of the present cloth architecture. No devices, no corset, no fake answers, no false pretenses. Almost the naked truth. The truth of a body living under its garment, unconstrained. But never abandoned still. This collection is all about breathing.
