This season’s Yuna Yang collection was simply beautiful. With a pre-show clip featuring a fashion caper who stole the collection out of an apartment and dashed through Central Park, I was able to get a glimpse of the collection before the fashion presentation began.

Tight, tailored cropped pants, blouses, and dresses adorned the models on a set that looked like a mid-century living room or an extremely chic early 1960s all girl college dorm common room. The modernist black and white shoes by Michael Antonio really added to this stark collection. The palette went from beige and grey to black and red stripes. The slits and v-cuts added a sexiness to the collection. If you want to know what sophisticated, downtown chic is… check out this collection
