This Spring-Summer 2015 season, SHOPTHEMAG welcomes Malaysian designer Yii, who launches his inaugural womenswear collection this season. Called 4 Years of Pito, and it is the sartorial representation of an autistic child’s mind.

The drawings on the pieces from this collection are what Yii imagines would be Pito’s point of view of the world. The resulting artworks are at once chaotic and brilliant; childlike and profound; shocking and funny. To allow them to take centre stage, Yii keeps the silhouettes on almost every piece in the collection, from cocoon dresses to cropped tops, simple and clean.

Yii says, “I believe in every child, there is an artist. Children are naturally curious and adventurous. Perhaps we should not grow up, then things would always appear pretty and fun.”

The 4 Years of Pito Collection is sold exclusively in Singapore at shopthemag.com.
