Vivienne Hu catwalk show report S/S 2016 for NYFW
From patterned mini dresses to conservative tuxedo-like jumpsuits, the designer Vivienne Hu sent her stunning, eclectic spring collection down the runway. Models rocked a variety of patterns from florals and polka dots to abstract lines and shapes; Hu turned a simple piece into an extravagant, eye-catching and ready-to-wear outfit.
The level of detail in each design was clear, whether it was shown through the pattern, the cut or shoulders or through the embellishment of the pieces. With her use of silk and sheer materials, her work displayed a sweet but sexy look while maintaining a soft and feminine touch that the springtime demands.
The primary colors used tonight were varietal, from lighter, earth tones such as nude, white, pale purple, green, and baby blue to bolder ones of navy blue, bright red, neon green and leather black. Spring-inspired patterns such as flowers, nature, and birds were also seen on the works of Hu. Such patterns were incorporated into her lighter dresses as well as her edgier black leather dresses.
Among the main draws of the show were asymmetrical hemlines, one-shouldered tops, and jaw-dropping V-necks. Many of her tuxedo-inspired pieces consisted of blouses, jackets, rompers, and dresses. Hu created beautiful blazers, clasped together with jeweled broaches, and then took embellishing the pieces further by adorning some of the dresses and gowns with stunning Swarvoski crystals. Hu’s collection perfectly foreshadowed the beautiful trends that are to be expected for the S/S 2016 season.
