Vionnet Resort 2014
Perfecting the femininity vibe, the Vionnet Resort 2014 collection is full of outgoing personality and flair. Creative director Goga Ashkenazi successfully intertwines delicate silhouettes with sexy cutting. It stays true to Madeline Vionnet’s original techniques of bias cutting and signature draping, by putting a modern spin on the legend’s aesthetic. Not only do these clothes flatter the body beautifully, they light up the wearer. These styles equal total confidence…and it’s marvelous.
Every piece lays so perfectly. There’s a sleek rhythm and flow while these looks fit the model like a luxurious silk glove. The colors are rich and bold. Even the white pieces are crisp and glorious, the brightest white we’ve seen. There’s an asymmetrical feel on the skirts, while the pants taper and cover the feet dramatically. Cut-out backs add a little edgy sex-appeal. Artdeco designs create a peek-a-boo effect on several dresses, a jacket and trench coat. The sheer lace tulle technique looks futuristically glam on the kimono sleeves and tunic dresses throughout. There’s even nods to 1940s bathing suits in the undergarments covered under these sheer styles. The show-stopping pieces are the assortment of gorgeous evening gowns. The buttery yellow number glistens, while the white gowns look angelic. Even an original Vionnet seahorse print is reintroduced into the 21st century.
The accessories and finishing touches on the styles are exquisite. Detachable collars on dresses are original and functional. Elastic and leather belts look colorful and add perfect emphasis to the waist. How fantastic is the new head scarf? It’s ancient Egypt with a modern twist. The colorful purses in snakeskin clutches, long-strap handbags and mirror box bags are the right amount of panache. Everything’s a complete knockout.
