A/W 2015/16 RTW – Vionnet

There were a whole bunch of looks at Vionnet that I absolutely loved.  While some were gorgeously artistic, I always like to seek out the most “wearable.”  The whole idea is that we can take something away from the Shows…

If we are in the Industry, it’s all about noting what trends are important (colors, textures, shapes…), so that we can interpret them for our own consumers, in our own ways.  It is also about seeing how each designer presented his or her vision(s), and selecting the elements most applicable to our products.  

As a consumer, we want to find things that we can reasonably “pull off” ourselves (hello!  Meant to WEAR this stuff!)…and with the über talent of many of the designers (as far as creativity goes) that is not always easy – it’s not uncommon for the Runway to be doused in waves of decorative pieces that have a difficult time translating to the streets.

Intended or no, there was a Ancient-Goddess vibe to some of the Vionnet pieces…  The silky satin drapery was DIVINE…and oh my, the colors – between the peach sorbet and the delicioulsy-mint, and the combination of the two…gorgeous.

Loved the slim, floor-length, turtleneck sweater dress (perfectly cinched with a wide leather belt, PS!), and the modern asymmetry of the black leather pants, one shoulder (partially long-line) top.

There were a bunch of ultra-mod, geometric lines peeking out of the various ensembles, worn almost as futuristic clothing-as-body-jewlery.  The crackled, white-based print for the floor-length skirt, paired with the white open blouse…and the under-geometry, as it were, was super cool looking.  Possible to get away with this as is, or even without the under piecing – the black leather belt makes it jive really nicely.

The designer featured a whole array of cowl-hoods, and asymmetric lengths, giving a wonderfully bewitching vibe, especially with the flowing fabrics (wow, to the molten gold, floor-dusting skirt!)

Her splattered “lava” prints and thigh-high lace up boots added a sassy edginess to the Collection, that I couldn’t help but love.
