collection images: vera wang, pre-fall
by Jeremy Danté
in the past, i’ve been dissapointed by the collections designed & presented for vera wang; for the pre-season, im reasonably satisfied. while it seems as though much of what i was least favorable of has been left out- wang’s style is very apparent & is seen clearly translated in many of her design ventures. while the opening sequence of the show introduced quintessential black pieces; we seen fur with pleated skirts & mini-capes- it was very refined downtown sophistication. shots of neutral & iced whites by way of satin gowns were seen. my most favorite element of the collection this pre-season was the footwear & the knee highs- not only versatile, but unendingly stylish. great use of color toward the close of the show sequence. i found interesting concepts in the way the garments were shaped as well; beautiful construction in the collections dresses. overall, great style was presented. vera wang fares well, looking forward to see what she will reveal for FW11 in new york.
