Vionnet // SS2010

The draping in this collection is a nice nod to label pioneer Madame Vionnet's wonderful art of moulding fabric and creating some of the most breathtaking pieces of her time. Madeleine Vionnet, a pioneer of the bias cut, founded the label in 1912. She would famously craft her designs on miniature mannequins first. The label was briefly revived in 2007 with a fall collection by Greek designer Sophia Kokosalaki. I look foward to seeing where Rodolpho Paglialunga takes it.
