HELEN LEE Spring-Summer 2017 collection presentation was held on October 15, 2016. Set in a cosy, home-like interior of Loft Terra Incognita at 162 Yong Nian Rd in Shanghai Xintiandi, the presentation was split into three intimate limited sitting shows for the chosen few.
With an inspiration constantly drawn from nature, this season’s print motives include tender magnolia flowers surrounded by bees and butterflies, and once again – the recurring symbol of the brand – bunnies, this time equipped with butterfly wings. Natural hues of milk coffee brown, grass green, violet, pale pink and baby blue are spiced up with bright infusions of scarlet red, lemon yellow and mint green. Innovative print-on-pleat fabrics lightly flowing with the body movements, floral embroideries and exquisite silk fabrics make up an irresistibly sensual spring line, while immaculately tailored suits, pencil skirts and dresses in light wool, embroidered coats and jackets in shiny PVC material add a chic touch up to the overall languid feeling of the collection. SS2017 line slogan “Immature & Unsupervised”, appearing as text print on T-shirts, declares next season is about retrieving childhood carelessness and freedom, and accepting yourself the way you are.
