The fashion capital of China and an international hub, Shanghai leads as a trailblazer of style, and C.J. Yao brings her culture and knowledge to a fashion peak. Hanging onto muted taupes and brilliant blues, the structured bags added dimension to the calm and collected pieces. Draping and asymmetry provided a modern twist to old favorites, classic items for years to come. Oversized for a cozy fit, C.J. Yao prevents her designs from becoming too feminine in boxy jackets that are just what the doctor ordered. With the perfect stripe and leather accents to give women the perfect versatility for spring, C.J. Yao nailed it with a concisely fashionable outlook.
