The Yiqing Yin Fall Couture 2013 collection mixed extraterrestrial influences with classical silhouettes. The stunning garments borrow elements like high necklines and floral patterning with gauzy organzas that bring new life to these historical silhouettes. Fashion of this time is quite laden down with weight but these looks bring lightness to the forms.

In addition to the lightness of these fabrics, Yin's palette of blues and whites makes the fabric look even more like water. The gorgeous draping of fabric seems to simulate the movement of waves as it dramatically wraps around the models' forms an creates movement as they walk.

The styling of the models -- their pallor, lack of makeup and slicked back hair -- brings a stark modernity to the looks, making them seem like they are royalty from another planet.
