This season, the Vera Wang Spring 2015 RTW collection was bridal infusion of ruffled, ruched, pleated, passementiere, a “deconstruction” of formal feminine details through the prism of both tailored and soft silhouettes. It was “Boyish Boudoir, Baby Bohemian.”
“There are two very distinct parts: One is tailored, the other side is very flou,” the designer said.
Models walked white gravel-strewn paths accessed through a black rose-covered entryway in oversize double-breasted wool blazers with pleated hems and passementerie embellishment on the back, rows of ruffles and tiered pleats on vests and camisole tops, fabric-covered sequin flowers, and brocade trapeze dresses, most in shades of black, navy, and charcoal, with skirts flaring out about the mid-thigh over bare legs, the majority cinched neatly along the empire waistline with thick black leather belts.
Vera Wang said she borrowed a lot of the techniques she uses in bridal and applied them to the menswear pieces.
