Brothers Demna and Guram Gvasalia have proved to skeptics that something cool and “alternative” still survives in the mainstream, corporate luxury goods-saturated high-fashion world. Oversized blazers, giant MA-1 jackets and tea dresses with sweat shirting inserts are just some of the displays of the Vetements SS16 collection. “There’s something in the collection which means a lot to everyone who’s worked on it – like those rose-printed plastic tablecloths we made into aprons and dresses were an ode to my grandmother,” explained Demna Gvasallia (Vogue.com). What sets Vetements apart the most is their stylistic insights into what people want to wear, complimented by the power of niceness, friendship, truth and integrity as a crucial point of difference. Vetements presents two varieties of knee length skirts this season. The Vetements Straight zip skirt in black exudes the label’s signature off-kilter, romantic style featuring a zip design and front pocket detail. The statement piece is ideal for a corporate look with a personal flair. For an edgier alternative, there is the Vetements Leather Straight Zip skirt in burgundy or black with a wrap feature and front pocket detail to create volume. The Vetements leather skirt is an empowering and “alternative” piece that is a must-have in every woman’s wardrobe this season. The uniqueness portrayed by Vetements dresses is hard to come by in any other collection. The sleeveless Ruffle V-neck dress with an open back and navy and white polka dot print is the standout of the Vetements SS16 collection. The feminine yet oversized piece exudes effortless style and is ideal for a composed, everyday look. The piece also comes in a long-sleeved variety with a black and floral print. In contrast, there is the Vetements V-Neck lace trim camisole dress in black, for an edgier, seductive look. The floaty silhouette and back cape allows for volume and movement, with the lace trim detailing adding a utilitarian edge to a timelessly classical style. Lastly, there is Vetements set of sophisticated and on-trend shirtdresses, coveted the world over. The Vetements Collared Long Sleeve Shirt Dress demonstrates disruption of structure and proportion through its wrap skirt feature and back fastening. The perfect weekend ensemble comes in blue, black or blue stripes, to cater to any mood or occasion.
