Originally from Hong Kong, after graduating from Central Saint Martins Marie Yat took her first steps in the fashion world with an internship at the ateliers of Hussein Chalayan and Yang Li. While still following courses at the peerless London college, Yat started to develop her own underwear and loungewear label.

Her designs are characterized by a duality, bold and gentle at the same time, seeking a synthesis between female lingerie and unisex underwear. The seamless jersey pieces, made in natural fabrics like cotton and silk, underline the search for a comfortable and uncompromised style, which is the signature of her minimal approach to underwear.

Knitwear, modernity and bondage merge together into a soft androgyny, built through a colour palette of light pastel tones. Old fin de siècle lingerie is translated into simple and clean lines, galvanizing contemporary silhouettes and refining the tomboy attitude of the looks.
