Vera Wang Fall 2013 is so much more than bridal gowns and delightful cocktail dresses. There is a true maverick underneath all that elegant sweetness. Many forget, or do not know, that Ms. Wang was once a fashion editor in Paris. She is superbly well-versed in French couture and knows her fashion history.
Vera Wang Fall 2013: A return to a designer’s roots
Her Fall 2013 collection could be seen as a return to her roots. She revisited her past, applied her master dressmaking skills and created an intriguing selection of looks that marked a departure from recent collections. The result was fresh, modern and quite lovely.
Ms. Wang recognizes the ability of furs to add just the right touch of drama and elegance to any look. Her sculptural capes and stoles in white and black fox are easy and wearable, perfect over jeans and T-shirts, polished day suits, or elegant evening gowns.
