New York: Vera Wang charted new territory this season with a collection based on tailoring. Pant- and shortsuits and slim blazers demonstrated Wang’s ever-expanding offerings for ready-to-wear, extending beyond the delicate dresses for which she is known. But the suiting pieces were anything but traditional and structured. Wang brought a sense of airiness with lightweight materials, and a crossover waist design for pants lent a subtle volume. Embellishments like twisted bits of organza or panels of Mongolian lamb gave blazers an ultra-luxe feeling. On the more casual side, grey heather jersey never looked more elegant than when used here for tapered pants with a black tuxedo-style side seam. Draping and wrapping were key design details, giving dimension to a dusty blue tunic and featherweight black organza dresses. Both the new suiting pieces and the signature dresses are sure to resonate with Wang’s chic clients.
