Vickteerut is channelling freedom and relaxation for its spring/summer 2015 collection, “Spirited Away,” which means there’s a fair amount of flowy fabrics and loose tailoring. But what the collection lacks in clingy tailoring, it makes up for in fuss .
If you’re planning on walking through any wind machines this summer, this collection — with its inexplicably shredded skirts, dresses, and top — will ensure you strike a cool silhouette while you do. If, however, your summer plans involve general day-to-day activities, such as walking through doors and getting into cars, you might want to be wary of this potential hazard.
But, practicality aside (when did a true fashionista ever care about that, anyway?), there are some stunning pieces in this collection.
Pussycat bow shirts and double-breasted a-line dresses provide a fun twist on traditional office wear. The look is powerful, sexy, and very wearable, which is an appealing combination for the fashion-conscious professional.
Cutaways are another strong look throughout the collection, with slithers of exposed belly making for a collection that’s both accessible to the average woman (i.e. one who hasn’t got a washboard stomach) and bang on-trend. Cutaways are also featured on the back of some of the collection’s tops, giving a fresh take on the trend — still gutsy, but perhaps a little more refined than revealing flashes of belly.
Despite the fuss of the designs —there are frills, fringing, cutaways, and plenty of asymmetrical elements at play here —the collection maintains its effortlessness and minimal aesthetic. Masculine elements, such as oversized trousers and buttoned-up sleeveless tunics, offset very feminine detailing, including the bows, pleats, and frills. A simple palette of dove grey, white, black, and powder blue is further softened with light fabrics, such as silk, chiffon, satin, and cotton.
There’s no denying there’s a little bit of a mishmash of influences at play here, but any collection that incorporates a double-breasted coatdress, alongside a flared trouser suit and tailored onesie that seems to be inspired by Little Lord Fauntleroy, we can’t help but love.
