At 20, Pedro Laurenco is s talent that has such a great vision and it showed. His work with geometric shapes and techniques with insets and panels were superb. There is a hint of 60's influence and a wonderful display of sharp and feminine clothes. I am delighted with this collection and to see how much he is growing.
Rodolfo Paglialunga at Vionnet found online a black and white knot and turned it into a swirling graphic pattern which he used in some of the splendid pieces in this collection. There were dresses knitted in ribbons of silk, organza, wool and suede. A palette of exquisite colors and prints were in the entire collection and made it look sophisticated and glamorous. Vionnet will be very hard to resist!
Vivienne Westwood offered a little bit of everything in her collection. Tweed coats, striped suits, some signature body hugging signature looks. The body hugging gold column was quite a treat. Yohji Yamamoto's print dresses with negatives of floral prints, there were some hoops and great punk sensibility that Yamamoto went back to. There is a wonderful lightness to the collection that came out from the past dark ones.
Yes. Unique is definitely demonstrated here and truly appreciated. How boring would the world be if there unique did not exist? I would be. Wouldn't you?
