Vena Cava RTW Spring 2010

Among the many references that worked their way into Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock’s collection: Tribal, sexy noir and an overt ode to punk.



Among the many references that worked their way into Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock’s spring collection for Vena Cava were tribal, by way of beading and a mask print; sexy noir via fishnet underpinning, and an overt ode to punk through safety pin details and splatter-paint motifs. Underneath it all, Vena Cava’s signature silks — filmy shorts and dresses, the best of which cut away into trailing tails — united the lineup in a pretty but not precious way. Romantic elements tempered the tough; novelty countered commercial for an exercise in cool, controlled variety.
