Vera Wang 2010 Spring/Summer Collection
Crystal necklaces, densely embroidered necklines, tulle and net overlays—all the Vera signatures were here. But with this collection, something was different: Call it a sense of ease, or a dressed-down (relatively speaking, of course) casualness that looked new. It came across early on thanks to a loose-fitting black crepe de chine jumpsuit topped by an incredible beaded spiderweb necklace, and it continued throughout the show via the biker shorts that she paired with everything from a basketball tee and organza skirt combo to a metallic gauze halter tank and poufy ballerina skirt. The collection pretty much reflected the way Wang herself dresses: luxe and pulled together but somehow sporty. May I just also add how gorgeous the shoes were??
