Geometry, Dragonflies, and Pollock: Vionnet’s 2015 Resort Collection

By Katie Chen

June 19, 2014

Vionnet took the iridescence of an industrial metal look and found it in nature, namely dragonfly wings, to create its 2015 Cruise Collection.

Chairwoman and Creative Director of Vionnet, Goga Ashkenazi, stayed true to the heritage of the brands classic style, inventive cuts, and use of traditional fabrics like organza and silk taffeta. In one standout piece that embodies the veins on a dragonfly wing, a single, rectangular piece of technical organza was used to create the body of the gown. Another dress went into further detail with large fabric panels that mimicked a dragonfly wing. Using the silk taffeta, Vionnet cut the traditional brand staple into modern, geometric silhouettes.

The fashion house’s signature Mosaic Bag was made using laser cut technology, but is was accented with paint splatter, inspired by the work of Jackson Pollock. The accessories of the collection also kept with a theme of contrast, juxtaposing delicate and futuristic motifs. Ashkenazi drew from Vionnet’s 2014 Demi-couture Collection by bringing industrial subtleties into reversible dress pieces, lined with floral lace but geometrically-shaped to bring in the durable derivatives.
