Vera Wang’s Spring/Summer 2017 RTW Line Plays with Darkness & Sporty Silhouettes

The Vera Wang spring/summer 2017 collection just gave the New York Fashion Week its sultriest turn, with staples artfully arranged to deconstruct the figures, giving a jocose confidence to those who are wearing them.

Vera Wang, who began her career designing wedding dresses, is no stranger when it comes to creating figures that enhance any woman’s silhouette, and we, of course, were not surprised to see how skillfully and harmoniously she managed to combine her signature sensual appeal with a more mysterious, sub-urban attitude. In the process, she even managed to serve us an element of surprise we are already fond of: a sort of grunge meets the Victorian era style.

Just like many designers, Vera Wang also gave us something neither too familiar nor too new, as she did focus on her signature black and white patterns, yet translating them to a more grunge-inspired, Nineties-approved sort of clothing line.

This Vera Wang spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection is heaven on earth for those who are waiting for next spring and summer to rock their grungiest looks, especially if refined by Wang’s signature urban-chic influences.

The collection is, in fact, not entirely Nineties-infused, as the former senior fashion editor at Vogue decided to inject a little scent of Eighties and Victorian fashion to her brand new collection as well. Along with white crop-tops, slip dresses and oversized t-shirt dresses, Vera Wang revamped the line-up with puffed-up shoulders, peplum cuts and intricate beaded embroideries, the delicacy and flirty geometries of which really are at the core of Vera Wang’s way of modernizing ‘simple’ staples.

Vera Wang’s woman takes plain simple garments and turns them into something special and somehow fancy, not only thanks to the designer’s thoughtful approach to the proportions, but also due to her visionary idea of reappropriating old figures just to turn them into something completely different and more sensual.

In the process, she even managed to turn sporty pieces such as hoodies, tees and short shorts, into something that transcends athleisure and is closer to street style. Her sporty-chic pieces exude coziness at its purest, the lines and cuts of which might even be regarded as nothing too perfect, but surely as the key that gives the entire collection a fresh sensuality, which treats us with to new for every day/night.

The Vera Wang spring 2017 collection’s standout feature relies on Wang’s ability to mix her suburban signature style with reminiscences from her personal past, which, as many of you may not know, comprised both fashion and sports.

Before venturing into the fashion industry, Wang was a figure skater, a profession that not only allowed her to experience the sport’s discipline and hard work, but also gave her a clear idea about what sports-friendly meant. For her spring/summer 2017 RTW, she might surely not have been bothered with experimenting with colors, but was when it comes to coziness and fluidity.
