Designer love :: Marie Yat
Born and raised in Hong Kong, designer Marie Yat moved to London and studied at the coveted Central Saint Martins. I love her simplicity and commitment to balancing comfort and sensuality. She said in an interview in Dazed: “We are designing for women who identify themselves outside of the mainstream characteristics of lingerie. One of the core ideas of the label is to combine the delicate details of lingerie and the relaxing feel of a piece of unisex underwear”. And like many indie brands, Marie is embracing women's bodies by refusing to photoshop, her imagery very clearly showcasing stretch marks and bruises. As someone with stretch marks, cellulite and bruises, I say "hell yeah!"
