Design duo Nam Tsang and Pauline Yuen employ a small team of Hong Kong’s finest artisans and craftspeople.

They utilize old techniques to infuse a sense of history into their work.

Through the union of asymmetrical lines, feminine ruching, classic silhouettes and natural fabrics, A Tentative Atelier’s distinct character is achieved.

The studio delivers meticulous handiwork: whipstitched ribbon peeks out from a silk trench coat, delicate pleats embellish a suit coat and classic lines sublimate raw, natural linen.

The cream and white color palette shines light on the collection, contrasting against dark silk and jacquard patchwork.

There’s a sense of wholeness, where contradiction is welcomed and rendered into beauty.
