The Collection: Vionnet Fall 2013
The Theme: Expertly draped modern Grecian dressing
The Color Palette: Black, white, yellow,Â green, and blue
About the Collection: Itâ€™s all about the folds at Vionnet; creative director Goga Ashkenazi stayed true to the houseâ€™s roots, crafting black suits and skirts with elaborate folds that allowed color to peep through while paying homage to Mademoiselle Vionnetâ€™s skills as a dressmaker with loose Grecian-inspired dresses. Rounded shoulders on the blouses and jackets coupled with slim pants were cinched with a metal plated belt to create a form that was structured, yet loose at the same time. This lineup was a good start in making the historical house of Vionnet fresh and new for a new 21st century modern audience.
