photo cred: edeline lee
In an supersaturated realm of designers banking on generic silhouette, Lee resorts to the value of lines and quality. This means bold geometric lines, panels, and patchwork spun into raw silks that rather than chop up the body, accentuate it and stamp the designer's juxtaposed aesthetic of classicism and modernity. An ironic statement, but an effective one. All the more refreshing is the fact that the London-based Canadian's Fall 2012 season is her first as sole director of her brand, cementing her status as an accomplished craftswoman after a momentary career hiatus. One to watch.
