Runway Collection – The Yine Girl
Inspired by the traditional and indigenous people of Peru, Hian Tjen created pieces that are rich with textures and colours taken from Peruvian culture and history. ‘The Yine Girl’ collection integrates conventional arts with splendid fashion elements that are modern, sophisticated and elegant.
As always with Hian Tjen, details play an important part in giving the pattern play a compelling allure. The perfect details of Peru cultural elements blend together seductively, evident by the authentic hand-woven textile portraying the beautiful Ausangate rainbow mountain of the Peruvian Andes, vintage motifs from the Nazca lines which are massive drawings in earth, also known as Peru geoglyphs with about 300 different figures including animals and plants, traditional Andean handwoven textiles rich with innumerable Inca symbols and patterns, bright-coloured layers of wool fabrics made from llama and alpaca wool, and the vibrant hues of the Machu Picchu natural tropical rainforest.
In addition to designing the collection, Hian Tjen has collaborated with Rinaldy Yunardi to create a unique head piece inspired by Peruvian festival hats and a special thematic pair of shoes from Thang Shoes to strengthen and enrich the collection. Get ready for a magical and mystical experience when tradition meets fashion.
