It’s no surprise that Linda Hao’s capsule collection ‘A Psychedelic Trip Under The Sea’, which launches on Yesah today, exudes as much spunk and character as the designer, DJ, entrepreneur, model (and superwoman!) does. Her Spring/Summer 2014 capsule collection narrates a whimsical tale of a mermaid lost in the open sea and her happy aquatic adventures as she traverses corals and underwater canyons, encountering sea creatures, crustaceans and, I imagine, the occasional anemone or two.
Inspired by the tunes of Valley Vacation by Classixx, Shapeshifter by Elephant and Bjork, the collection also showcases a very successful collaborative effort between Linda and illustrator cum fashion textile designer, Teresa Lim aka TeeteeHeehee who adds a fitting whimsy to the collection’s campaign visuals. I especially love the custom prints for this collection, I believe before Princess Ariel has finished singing ‘Part Of Your World”, this precious capsule would have been snapped up!
Personal favourites include the tank dress (above), which looks like watercolours in cobalt, sky, aquamarine and peppermint went wild in a colour bleed party, the shell pocket tee (below) yay! to functioning pockets!
And the scallop cropped tee (below), which I think may have a chance at sneaking into my work wardrobe as part of a high-waist skirt/pant combo.
