I’ll preface this by saying, Vivienne Tam is one of my favorites every season. She rolls with what she feels and the result is always interesting and well tailored. This season I was thrilled with her innovative lacework mixed with neoprene , netting, and other fabrics that seem at opposite ends of the fabric spectrum. It worked. I loved this show.
For someone who is always influenced by her roots, Tam this season struck the perfect balance of East meets West. Inspired by chinoiserie, Tam infused her collection with ornate Baroque patterns, a touch of Victorian and traditional Asian prints. It may sound like a hodgepodge of ideas, but it like I said before it worked.
