Elegant Elements = Future Fashion

Elegant Elements = Future Fashion

When witnessing a great runway show, there are many things to consider. Was there a theme? What are the standout pieces? Does the designer have a clear point of view? This week, we’ll take a look at the fall and winter collection presented by New York-based designer, Vivienne Hu. For more about her work, check out her bio here. This collection seems to be a few collections in one. Thematically there are some strong visuals going on, as well as more classically-inspired interpretations of wearable looks. A little bit of influence from the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s make this truly a soupçon of style for sure. What do you see when you look at these photos I took? Here’s what I see ...

  • Contrasting colors/ textures, shiny versus matte etc.
  • Belled cuffs on sleeves
  • Dyed fur
  • Pieced fabrication
  • Snakeskin
  • Leather
  • Zippers on an angle
  • Capes
  • Layering multiple pieces
  • Tunics
  • Metallic moments
  • Asymmetrical hemlines on coats, dresses, and skirts
  • Quilting as a design feature
  • Interesting necklines, including boatneck looks

When looking at designer clothing, or for that matter art of any kind, it’s important to have both a critical eye and an open mind! Just because you wouldn’t wear a particular piece of fashion doesn’t necessarily mean there aren’t elements of the design which could be interpreted by you in your own day-to-day wardrobe. Runway shows are meant to be exaggerated and over-the-top so more wearable looks stand out, don’t you think?  

Whenever you need a boost for your own wardrobe, Goodwill can be a great place to explore the unfamiliar. And, while you’re at it, you’re continuing to support our important mission!
