Vetements Fall 2018 Denim Looks
Vetements – the French designer label – has been in news ever since they launched in 2009. Headed by Georgia born designer – Demna Gvaslia – the brand has been bringing out collections which stand apart and are stocked from Pret-a-porter to Nordstrom. The label prides itself in being unpredictable with their various activities – whether its avoiding the traditional fashion calendar, using pictures only for a presentation in a car park, casting people on the street and so on. The element of surprise is always on for Vetements followers.
This element of unpredictability is what sometimes creates great interest in their collection. For their Fall’18 collection , they have either used embroideries, patches, stickers ,paintings differentially washed leg panels, frayed hemmed, overlapping or a combination of these to get the desired looks for a streetstyle wear. Vogue termed this collection as FLEA MARKET CHIC and it sounds perfectly worded ! Anti-fit and Anti – balance is another concept that they have used while stitching the different panels o the jeans/jacket to create patterns and an entirely differently angled aesthetic. Many of the pieces stand out while some others can be easily considered ‘funny’ !
