an example of one of Jean Yu's limited edition gowns
Jean Yu is a New York-based designer who specializes in creating limited edition dresses and lingerie. Her signature style is very feminine and fluid, as she uses materials such as silk chiffon, charmeuse and georgette. She has a very simple yet striking lingerie collection with a clean, modern aesthetic. The prices are a bit steep, but you are getting handmade pieces with very serious attention to detail.
It's no surprise that Jean Yu was recently commisioned by the Mercer Hotel (NYC) to design a luxurious custom robe for the hotel's guests. This robe is inspired by the classic smoking jacket and is made from double-faced silk charmeuse. It's one of the few Jean Yu pieces you can buy online!
