VIONNET PREFALL 2013 COLLECTION
Pre-Fall 2013, Vionnet presents a collection that exalts its heritage while continuing to advance into a fresh and modern creative arena. The signatures of Madame Vionnet — square cuts of fabric, bias constructions and draping — are all present today, yet vividly re-imagined with a contemporary eye. The artist Louise Bourgeois and her intriguing work with textiles, inform not only the distinctive color palette but also the unique patterns found pulsing throughout.
Black and white root the collection, creating a two-tone game on fronts and backs of dresses that reinforces the art deco undercurrent. Shots of color, from emerald green, sapphire and citrine to a dark ruby or pale sea foam, create a vivid canvas and contrast for the neutral base.
