Luxury Week Day 5: Vera Wang

By Butterboom Writers  /  September 1, 2008

Vera Wang closes the show with an edgy and romantic finale.


This is it! Our final piece of coverage of the 2008 Mastercard Luxury Week in Hong Kong and this final new show brought out an exciting collection from designer Vera Wang.

Vera Wang’s fall collection is inspired by modernist painter Kees van Dongen, late 18th century flamboyant Dutch painter who is famous for his use of flashy, bright colours to paint his favourite subject matter – sailors and prostitutes.

A gorgeous collection featuring lots of jewel toned colours in satin, organza and chiffon. It was edgy and romantic at the same time. Dresses were long, loose fitting with interesting layers, florets, poufs and beautiful accessorized metal collars and embellishments. The effects is an elegant elongated silhouette that exudes understate luxury.

We love the burnish autumn colours of yellow gold, tomato red and dark green on her dreamy dresses. Vera always uses the most gorgeous colours! Tight fitting satin pants worn with short tunic tops nipped at the waist and little short dresses with knots and folds here and there gave the collection a deconstructed edgier look.
