Favorite of the Day: Vionnet

For the past several years, the trend in fashion has been to live in any decade but our own. Every decade of the 20th century, as well as much of the 19th century, has been plundered for inspiration. Stepping over the edge and landing in the realm of costume can be hard for some to avoid.

But when handled properly, the results can feel new and exciting. Can be sometimes subtle and sometimes over the top. Can take your breathe away. This season has already borne witness to everything from Gatsby to greasers. The Vionnet collection shown on September 30th settled somewhere in between.

Sometimes a break from the reality of the present is not only necessary but required.
