Vivienne Tam: From the 1920s to Today

By Eliza Jordan

September 24, 2015

Located in the Arc at Moynihan Station—one of New York Fashion Week’s newest and largest venues—Vivienne Tam presented her spring/summer 2016 collection, and the consistent designer did not disappoint. Inspired by the nature of fashion in the ’20s, and combined with today’s “street fashion” culture, Tam reflected upon contemporary design elements found in art deco, and put forth various dropped-waist, mesh, and of course, laser-cut applique looks.

The collection’s expressive, relaxed silhouettes were seen in a variety of pairings—ribbed knits, crisp cottons, and layered technomesh. Through masculine shapes and feminine embellishments, pops of midnight black, bright white, red, sea green, and fluorescent pink added a modern twist. A few of our favorites included a thick mesh bomber in mint green and a deep V-neck grey dress with white and black flower appliques.
