LFW Diary AW12: Yang Du

In the theme of Noah's Ark Yang Du's new collection is a hoot! Entitled 'Why do fools fall in love?', a variety of owls, crocodiles, giraffes and big cats adorned bright knits while beautiful handmade leather mini rucksacks come iPad cases stole my attention. Always incorporating the surreal into each and every collection, for AW12 dinosaurs take pride of place alongside the animals.
Working with On|Off in London and Paris this season, I caught a glimpse of the presentation choreographed by artist Ryan Styles last Thursday at the preview and was wowed by the puppetry and energetic playfulness which came through a variety of animal sounds and exaggerated head pieces to bring the knitted creations to life. Bravo!
