NEW YORK…Victoria Bartlett’s VPL (Visible Panty Line) collections have been steadily gaining momentum in the fashion race, and the S/S 09 collection entitled “Velocity” was an appropriate leap forward. Incorporating details inspired by aviation, such as parachute drawstrings, nylon and tension cords, the looks held their traditionally sporty appeal. Ruching and creative draping maintained a feminine aspect, while pops of color on the footwear, jewelry and clothing kept things from getting bland. Always an inspiration, the work of this former stylist continues to speed ahead.
