Vanessa Seward Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2016 Paris
"Une femme française" announced a blue t-shirt in Vanessa Seward's sophomore show for her eponymous brand. And it couldn't be simpler than that, an offering of elegant options for a woman who is wholly unconcerned with how she looks and what she wears, provided she is devastatingly chic while doing it. Anyone looking to buy into that Parisian wardrobe will have no trouble getting themselves kitted out – and personalizing those fantastic jeans – at her new flagship store on rue d'Alger, a street made already popularized by the opening of AMI earlier this year.
Forever in thrall with the Parisienne's je ne sais quoi and Yves Saint-Laurent's Seventies (eagle-eyed guests will have spotted historic team members among the guests), the APC alum offered up fabulous belted overcoats in metallic blue, the iconic Saharienne in butter-soft suede, printed chiffon numbers and more in mouthwatering pseudo-neutrals like Bordeaux, navy, and maroon. It slaked the thirst for that quintessential secret made popular by thousands of fluff pieces and volumes such as Caroline de Maigret's “How to be a Parisian.” Barefoot yet glamorous, Seward's woman is equally at ease in an art gallery as she on the beach, and her wardrobe varies very little, save for the concession of ditching her shoes, displaying golden toe rings. It was straightforward in its promises but made charming by being, as another top suggested, Vanessa's Way.
