Spotlight on Vera Wang

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Coco Chanel

From the Spring 09 Vera Wang collection:
Charcoal and white geometric printed gazar high neck top over black stretch cotton legging. Black leather Niki bag with smoke crystal motorcycle chain.

Vera Wang reinvents herself every season with amazing twists and imaginative spins on classic elements that makes her line so appealing. Her chunky wedge shoe choice with modern lines and sleek design sensability make them ultra attractive. Her keen sense of fusing the past with the present keeps her on top. Of course, I go for the shoes to exemplify, but her interpretation of style and sophistication give me goosebumps. Juxtaposed rugged elements with delicate lines are so attractive in modern women who aren't afraid of crossing the line. She is a design genious giving us street, feminine, modern and sexy.

On the down, she needs to rethink her character when choosing models for runway. Ultra anorexic and gaunt is not chic to me. Her visions hang rather than live through the models and the movement. Isn't that what runway is for?
