Designer Hyun Yeu told us he was pretty nervous before today’s show. But there really was no need for that. For the third time Hyun Yeu proved he’s a talented designer who really has something to offer.

Today’s collection was inspired by the character of King Edward VIII, who gave up the English throne for a divorced American Woman. He named the collection The King Is Helpless. This inspiration was visible through looks that were vulnerable and romantic at the same time.

Yeu designed round shoulders, slightly puffy ¾ sleeves and little pleats in unexpected places. The clothes were made out of lightweight cottons, summer wools, silks and hi-tech fabrics. There were both casual and formal pieces in the collection.

Casual were the shorts, t-shirts and sport jackets, while suits (with checks), tailcoats and trenchcoats felt more formal. Several blouses were almost transparent and the shorts made of nylon resembled leather. All clothes came in pale green, light blue, navy, black and white, perfect shades for summer.

All looks were tailored really well. Especially the pants, the blouses and the navy trenchcoat looked stunning. Tomorrow Hyun Yeu will show a small womenswear collection. Since we loved the show today, we’re very curious about tomorrow. Will Yeu’s womenswear be just as good as his menswear line?
