Gayeon Lee, London, September at Foyles
The striking colour palette of the Gayeon Lee SS20 collection is drawn from Milton Avery’s paintings, and the majority of the pieces feature playful placement of pleated panels that give a refined fluidity.
Collages of geometric-cut patterns combine with a subtle, pastel-toned palette with hints of strong fuchsia, navy and yellow. Patchworks of textured denims and Gayeon Lee's signature colour blocking and asymmetry are shown with an impeccable attention to detail and subtle draping techniques.
Feminine long dresses, light-weight jackets and coats with touches of tailoring and structural volumes create flattering and effortless silhouettes for sophisticated women.
The LFW presentation at Foyles featured a collaboration with artist, and recent Central Saint Martins BA Fine Art graduate, Theola Sturridge, whose installation utilises colour to interrogate the senses through direct interaction with the space, creating an atmosphere that heightens the participant’s awareness of their presence and the actions of their body.
