Founded in Paris in 1912, Madeleine Vionnet impressed the industry and the world with her couture designs that featured exceptional quality fabrics teamed with her sartorial skills. She went on to become a revolutionary designer that led the way for modern women's clothing, until she closed the label in 1939. Re-launching with a modern approach to the brand in 2006 it continues to impress with the same ethos and focus. Now, with Goga Ashkenazi at the helm the brand continues to reinterpret the innovative elegance and distinguished style of Vionnet's work. Goga Ashkenazi and her team at Vionnet have taken a lighter approach to this seasons Resort collection, replacing heavy fabrics and layers with iridescent accents, multi-coloured jacquards and intricate patterns. Fabrics are almost weightless, technical and gently embroidered, with dragonfly wings being the starting point for the collection. Silver, nude, white and black are the signature colours of the season, complemented by art deco stripes and modern sneaker-sandal hybrid footwear, a modern nod to Madeleline Vionnet.
