Christina Yi is the namesake label for the contemporary women’s and menswear brand. Yi is presenting her F/W ’14 collection entitled INDELIBLE during New York Fashion Week through Nolcha Fashion Week’s platform.


INDELIBLE, permeates style through its primal edge ingrained into enduring formality. Marked by Christina Yi’s traditional aesthetic, the unforgettable looks are drawn from the turn of the 19th century when gothic revival tones were infused throughout cultures such as Maori. The collection uses these cultural dominance as inspiration to the engagement of modern to primitive style. Facial tattoos known as Moko, architecture, and traditional to modern silhouettes during this era, display the idea that permanent concepts are born through the exploration of new worlds. The collection, INDELIBLE, displays gothic revival lines that harmoniously emanates Maori tattoos. Both are a sign of spirituality and strength that can not be easily removed. These cultures show coexistence in the collections by tattooed resembled lines of beading, delicate filigree lace and structured form paired effortlessly with organic silhouettes. Silk, wool, plaid, and
leather mixed with beading, knitting, and crocheting bring a modern aesthetic while containing a hint of old traditions. Using classic textures blended with tribal embellishments, INDELIBLE shows its clear purpose: creating garments that embody those who are fearless to recognize the hauntingly beauty of the past as they look forward to new discoveries. “Like ink injected to the skin, culture can not be washed away.” Christina Yi
