Her favorite designers include Marni, Dior, Rochas, Theyskens Theory and Tsumori Chisato. Francesca is also an avid writer of both poetry and prose, having been published in Mexico City's Ofi Press magazine, as well as the Jacket2 experimental poetry journal out of the University of Pennsylvania.

At the Ann Yee presentation yesterday, guests were asked to ponder the idea of “Resurgence”, and how urban development and fashion are two disparate subjects with surprising similarities.  The designer said that the city of Detroit was her starting point, beginning with its recent economic collapse, and its subsequent movement towards a rebirth. Yee herself is originally from Michigan, and her usually feather-light aesthetic was tempered with the collection’s weightier concept, which added a beautiful depth overall.

Yee was quoted as saying, “Resurgence focuses on the rise and fall of the city, what it represented to America in its hay day – Motown, the auto industry, and how inevitably it will come back around. I wanted to create awareness about Detroit’s unique culture, history and its current state. Through my work, I’d like people to see the possibility of the city being something of value once more.”

 

The designer toyed with knits to represent softness, tempered with structured jackets and dresses. By using dusky blues, steely grays and the occasional peach and olive, a distinctly urban theme started to emerge. Even the models’ hair was drawn back in faux cornrows on the sides, giving them an almost alien-like angularity.  A particularly strong combination of a twill top and cargo skirt paired with a loosely crocheted cardigan was a perfect encapsulation of the idea of finding beauty in a utilitarian setting.
