An ode to the ocean, Yu Mei's SS20/21 is a collection that speaks to ideas of calm resilience. This collection was designed at home, overlooking the Wellington Harbour - the stillness of the water's depths was encouraging at a time when the world felt up-ended.
Still Waters Run Deep is a gentle evolution of the Yu Mei DNA, driven by strong colours and subtle, sophisticated silhouettes.
New colours Poseidon, a true, deep navy and Pop Kelp a playful, bright take on pistachio are made to stand out against Shifting Sand, a fresh, neutral tone, rendered in canvas. Elsewhere, minimalist Black Nappa and Black Lamb finishes represent our simple but meticulous approach to luxury, and ensure the brighter shades can still take centre stage.
Alongside the new tones, this is a collection of perfectly rendered small leather goods. They are pieces that walk the fine line between pragmatism and opulence and will take you from the powder room to the boardroom.
Yu Mei's design codes of functionality and organisation have evolved to the art of packing, streamlining all areas of the Yu Mei woman's life.
Yu Mei has reimagined their beloved Vi bad by adding a removable scrunchie strap, while also introducing Sonja, an entirely new silhouette.
