When Vera opted out of New York fashion Week I was disappointed as she is becoming one of my favourite designers, but I soon learned the reason why and it was because she was goin to be receiving the Légion d’Honneur, France’s highest civilian honor, in Les Invalides.
With that being said, Vera said that going forward she will be looking at alternative ways of showcasing her collections, I’m not sure if this is because of how well the Fall collection was received without having to do a runway show? Maybe.
Ok let’s fast forward to the collection….. this collection just proves my point of her becoming a favourite of mine. Vera knows women’s bodies and she knows how to create electric elegance!!
In this collection we are seeing a heavy combination of masculine and feminine with layering being a main element. She drew this inspiration from her muses The emperor and his wife Josephine.
I simply call this collection Couture meets Napoleonic era.
