designer hyun yeu's the king is helpless - s/s 2011 collection for his label ado les scents is one of subtle glory. inspired by king edward VIII's amorous liaison with american divorcée wallis simpson, the collection is infused with delicate and romantic detailing that give the classic silhouettes an edge, albeit a soft one. used materials include light-weight cotton, summer wool, silk and also hi-tech fabric. shown below are five looks we particularly like. ado les scents is available at amsterdam stores kabinet and soepboer & stooker. © peter stigter
