Profile

This venue is closed.

Korean husband and wife design duo Hanii Yoon and Gene Kang burst onto the scene in 2001, and have quickly became fashion-world darlings, known for their innovative women’s wear that fuses Asian philosophy with an avant-garde design aesthetic. Their high-end East-meets-West style is evident in this modernist/Zen-like retail space, outfitted with benches and white drapes that run the length of the store along the walls, and hand-blown glass chandeliers. The real stars, though, are the clothes; you’ll discover intricately tailored, featherweight dresses—some in whites and ivories fit for a garden wedding—and full skirts with delicate embroidery in lilac and pale blue. Since Y & Kei encourage contrasts on their mannequins, the collection of ultra-feminine beaded gowns might be shown with a loose trench thrown over the shoulders, or a flirty, petal-thin blouse may be paired with slim Bermuda shorts.
