“Black, of course, is not a new story for me,”
Vera Wang, the mastermind behind the multimillion bridal empire, was heard saying backstage at her Fall 2015 RTW show. But bridal-wear isn’t the only thing the designer know’s how to create. The irony was ever-so-present during the unveiling of the collection, as models strode down the runway, in nearly all-black ensembles. But before you begin to think the designer is pulling an Alexander Wang, you might want to witness the entire collection before you jump to conclusions. Although masculinity played a huge part on the collection, that didn’t mean all femininity was lost.
Yes, almost the entire collection was black and there were apparent signs of monochrome, but there appeared to be a underline softness as well. Perhaps it was the billowy silhouettes and the barely-there makeup which accented every model’s face. Wide-neck pullovers were worn with petal-embroidered vinyl miniskirts, while sleeveless, ivory geometric minidress, featured lace and thick ribbed trimming. The overall collection was a beautiful mixture of masculine and feminine, creating a wondrous contradiction on the runway.
