What We Thought:
Right from its opening look, Vivienne Hu Spring/Summer 2015 conveyed an air of restlessness and strong desire. The designer took cue from the color green, fusing colors she felt paired naturally with green into the collection, including lots of black, pops of yellow, hints of red, and the colors of the Earth.
We noticed the models selected had rather angular and pronounced features themselves, which echoed the diagonals and angular cuts that were weaved throughout the Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Leather and masculine tailoring were in complete contrast to more free flowing garments (like our favorite, shown here, paired with a dreamy bubble pearl necklace) and figure-hugging -dare we say dominatrix level- dresses.
The impression we got from seeing Vivienne Hu Spring/Summer 2015 was one of a woman’s forwardness: her decisiveness in making fashion choices whether on a whim or with some extra planning — either way, the Vivienne Hu gal is in total control. It was a pleasant, contemporary ode to the designer’s own foray into the industry by way of leaving her job on Wall Street to pursue designing career full-time.
