Vera Wang Pairs Sexy Femininity with Sharp Men’s Tailoring in Black
Fashion One invites you to take a look at the stunning new collection by Vera Wang for fall/winter 2015 shown at New York Fashion Week. We bring you the best of the runway show and speak to the designer about the concept and details of her latest designs.
Wang wanted to emphasize that these pieces were a bespoke collection of handmade, hand-sewn and hand-tailored clothes. The team took time exploring bonding techniques to create uniquely bonded garments with new shapes and textures. The designer also discusses playing with proportions and tailoring cuts to personalize the look with both shorter and oversized jackets, as well as floor length maxi skirts and dresses.
The sporty chic collection only deviated from the brand’s trademark all black palette to add some accompanying white in a few shirts and jackets. Men’s tailoring was mixed with femininity, loose boxy jackets and wide leg pants together with plunging neckline gowns. Standing out from the simplistic utility wear and wool blazers were sexy sheer panels, patent leathers and the futuristic bonded thick Aran sweater.
Speaking about the the modern woman, Wang prioritized comfort as a necessity as well as the courage it takes to be minimal, and her collection offers both of these qualities.
