Alex S Yu’s unisex collection was presented in front of a digital screen featuring green school lockers.  A grey and white chequered dress with frilled hem, under a layer of shiny plastic, added a fresh twist to a preppy look. Pin stripes, pleats, and denim rendered a youthful vibe. A sportier feel emerged with pops of fluoro yellow and acid green on jackets with wide leg cropped trousers. Alex S. Yu has gone back to high school with a mismatch of colours and textures.
