Vionnet Pre-Fall 2013

NEW STABILITY
New York: The Croce sisters, Rudy Paglialunga, Sophia Kokosalaki, Marc Audibet. These are a few of the designers who have cycled through the house of Vionnet in recent seasons. It has been something of a revolving door of late, but perhaps Goga Ashkenazi will bring some stability. The Kazakhstan-born billionaire bought the company last year and installed herself as the label’s designer. Her first collection, for S/S 13, drew mixed reviews, but this season’s offering looked stronger. Asymmetry and elegant draping, key elements of Madeleine Vionnet’s work, were present here, as was her celebrated “square dress.” Ashkenazi also included color blocking and wide horizontal stripes that made the mood more buoyant. The owner/designer is currently snapping up as many original Vionnet sketches and pieces as she can find, which should help her to build the brand in a mindful way. ­­–Joanna Manganaro
