Vera may be in mourning for Roger Federer’s loss, but her collection certainly isn’t. And if it is, then this is the chicest mourning I’ve seen. Oh look, a poofy bouffant. How did Vera know that I was hoping for just the thing? As for her collection, I think “lots of tulle” narrows it down nicely. That women certainly has a free hand with it and I like it. Vera’s always been known for her dresses (hello brides), but I’m more interested in her ready-to-wear. Her dresses will always be beautiful, but she needs to show that she has more in her arsenal. And she does. Those crepe-wrinkled shorts and skirts are divine. The shape is so simple, yet the wrinkles add a whole new feel to them. And those armor-like vests with zipper edges? J’adore. I certainly wouldn’t mind going to battle in those.
Side note: I love how everyone always puts Frida and Jac next to each other in the line-up. I know everyone does it; Vera just happened to be the latest that I saw who did this.
