VPL by Victoria Bartlett



Victoria Bartlett continued to explore dualities for her spring collection: feminine versus masculine, decoration versus utility, fluidity versus structure.  Her androgynous and sports-minded aesthetic falls in line perfectly with recent activewear-inspired trends sweeping the market.  Polyurethane rainwear fabric was fashioned into the season’s popular jumpsuits, harem shorts and crop tops.  Bartlett dabbled in draped constructions, but still maintained control through bands that sliced through the fluid forms with military precision.  A procession of sheer shift dresses with shoulder pads worn on the outside and baring skivvies beneath exposed her thought process in constructing the undergarments she is known for.  This time around, Bartlett’s lingerie showed feminine takes on mens’ underwear, like the paneled brief, and brought luxe treatments, such as sequins and mini panniers, to cotton bodywear basics.
