FALL / WINTER 2019 SHERO
The collection is reminiscent of the female warrior of yore reborn into the modern day empowered woman. Inspired by the SHERO, the collection balances strength with softness.
Rendered in cream, ochre, pumpkin, deep turquoise, malachite green, azure, amaranth purple, vermilion, black, metallic grey and gold, the collection combines textures and fabrics such as lurex, silk chiffon, wool, cotton twill, jacquard, sequins, denim and leather.
Feminine blouses with high gathered collars and big ruched sleeves worn under dresses with leather harnesses add a soft femininity to this novel expression of modern amour. Hand stitched rhythmic detailing over coated fabric are dextrously combined so that they don’t hinder but rather, are emblematic of the inner strength and courage of the SHERO woman.
Wide corset belts, sometimes studded and embellished, feature prominently and tie the separates together. No longer accents, they are and integral part of the whole.
Trousers and culottes are loose and easy, while structured blazers add a tailoring contrast, sometimes cinched. Shoulder enhancements are a key focus and also hint at empowerment with the nuance of individual personality.
A playful take on the VIVIENNE TAM logo also is given a fresh approach in jacquard patterns and the iconic Qipao looks have been reinterpreted into variations, translating into wearable, versatile looks.
This collection Is to inspire the modern woman to channel her inner SHERO.
