“Her spirit is dancing,” Creative Director Goga Ashkenazi explained backstage at the Vionnet Spring 2015 runway show, standing near a mood board plastered with gorgeous photos of Isadora Duncan suspended in midair amid swirls of chiffon and jersey. “It’s all about the movement of the clothes.”
The collection featured some fine jersey gowns with Grecian draping. A lingerie subtheme proved another hazardous detour, with sheer portholes on some frothy numbers that revealed more than garter belts. The plissé and the Grecian draping were a nod to Madeleine Vionnet.
The color palette was soft, subtle and subdued. With an abundance of nude, white and pastel colorations, the collection projected a very ethereal yet minimalist undertone — the very aesthetic Ashkenazi is looked to showcase throughout the season.
