Need to know: “Modern nomad” inspirations are a dime a dozen in fashion, but Ann Yee put her own twist on the popular theme for Fall. The emerging designer, who is best known for her casual knitwear basics, worked with a predominantly neutral color palette ranging from shades of cement and charcoal gray to winter white—it was nicely offset by the deep violet lipstick worn by the models at yesterday’s presentation. While Yee has often featured original, custom prints in past seasons, here she decided to focus on mixing textures instead. Cozy, open-knit sweaters were shown with relaxed jogger pants, while a graphic jacquard bomber jacket came paired with a crisp, triple-collared shirt (a recurring signature for Yee) and a faux fur skirt. Faux fur was used as an accent throughout the lineup. It looked particularly cool on playful accessories including fuzzy hats and fingerless gloves. All in all, it made for an utterly comfortable, wearable collection.

She says: “This season was a story of textures, layering, and architectural lines.”

Need to Know: Considering its crumbling economy and ramshackle civil state, Detroit is the last place you might expect a fashion designer to find inspiration, but up-and-comer Ann Yee (who happens to be a Michigan native) found beauty and hope in the chaos, and dedicated her new Spring collection, entitled Resurgence, to the Motor City. Yee interpreted the concept quite literally at times, showing a series of softly tailored separates printed with a grid-like collage of photographs (lensed by her brother and cousin) capturing historic Detroit landmarks such as the Wurlitzer Building and Hotel Eddystone. Elsewhere, she was subtler with her references. Crisp twill separates like a cargo jacket and matching boxy skirt created with the modern factory girl in mind had architectural appeal, while several of Yee’s signature knits were flecked with metallic yarn so that they glinted like a shiny new car.

She says: “I feel like Detroit is on the brink of a renaissance and wanted to pay tribute to its unique culture and history. I’d like people to see the possibility of the city being something of value once again.”

Where to find it: American Two Shot, TENOVERSIX, Condor, and End of Century
