Fall 2016 Vetements Blue Floral Jersey Runway Dress Look 41
For the Vogue review of the Spring 2016 Vetements show, Sarah Mower stated: "No doubt about it: The flagging spirits of Paris fashion have had a shot in the arm since the Vetements collective, led by Demna Gvasalia, came on the scene. Their channeling and upgrading of everyday street style into high style has exerted a massive influence as designers and brands both established and even younger have found it impossible to resist the gravitational pull of Vetements’s outsize tailoring, printed dresses, and thigh-high boots. The feeling that a young, outsider energy is rushing into the spiritual vacuum which currently exists at the center of the establishment is healthy, exciting, and perfectly timed...what was noticeable in this mix was that, rather than just being subversive for the sake of the gestural politics, Vetements means business. Its hoodies have a cult appeal in one direction, but for the fashion congregation there is also so much to believe in here: not just the wearable, desirable printed blouses and dresses, but also the hope that this is the beginning of a new chapter in the life of Paris fashion."
This dress was one of the favored among the street style set and was photoed endlessly it seemed for various editorials. It sold out world wide and was wait listed. I am very pleased to have sourced one that has never been worn at all, still has all its original tags attached and is absolutely perfect. Girls often cut the longer hanging bits that trailed behind the dress but this one is still entirely original. It feels as fresh and avant garde as it did then and will absolutely be a future collectible. The color is a deep blue base with a floral print over that and the cut is oversized. The shoulders are cut a bit more fitted and have a ruffled cap that extends their shape. The sleeves are ling and detailed int trailing, deconstructed, twisted ruffles. More of that ruffles highlights the collar, the waist and the hem. It is remarkable and a true piece of fashion history. Original tags attached. Excellent condition.
Unlined in the same chiffon and slips on to wear with buttons at the front. Tagged a MED. The jersey has lots of stretch. It will fit a range of sizes because of this. Has an extra button
