Vivienne Tam’s fall/winter 2015 collection was full of embroidery, silks, and miniature pearlescent paillettes.
Cloisonné details in printed silk shifts featured sequined and beaded detailing. Sheer tulle, laser-cut lace, Victorian collars, and quilted skirts and jackets created fluid silhouettes. Pea-coats, gowns, tops, and menswear-inspired trousers appeared in both natural and technical materials, such as boiled wool or melton. The collection’s strength was in its varied volumes: gathered sleeves, A-line skirts, cropped pants, and asymmetrical jackets.
While the color palette specialized in unique neutral shades—burnished metallics, warm ivories, and camels—select pieces were rendered in varying depths of red, imperial blues, and dusty pinks.
One of our favorite looks, a wine crepe tunic with black mirror lace overlay, was paired with a scarlet colored, faux leather skirt. Another piece that shined was a China red wool Victorian jacket quilted in a black techno-mesh with fur trim.
