Vionnet Tickles the Ivories With Musical Collection

By Caroline Wall

March 9, 2016

French couture house Vionnet released its fall/winter 2016 collection last week as part of Paris Fashion Week. Fluid, buoyant fabrics gave the collection a soft ethereality, fitting the show’s theme: the translation of music into a visual, textile experience. The label’s head Goga Ashkenazi named her Steinway grand piano as her muse, inspiring geometric deconstructions of familiar instruments.

Crepe de chine, organza, and silk duchesse draped in the company’s signature Grecian style, combining warm nudes, bright rusts, and soft blues with the piano-key planes of black and white. Pleated fans, woven straps, and cut-out flourishes spiced up the collection, with occasional pops of plush fur. Standout pieces included a grey dress with keyboard-patterned embroidery and silver fur sleeves; a sheer, curvy black and gold gown with glimmering cords draped down the front, evocative of piano strings; and a flowing dress with interwoven stretches of black and white fabric, polished with an eye-catching grand piano print.
