Victoria Bartlett’s pre-fall collection for VPL focused on textures, especially in knitwear. “I mixed up yarns to create a ‘new yarn,’” said Bartlett. The result: some very cool novelty knits, such as an oversize gray tunic that drapes in front and is shorter at back.
There are also a few day-to-evening dresses that are easy to wear, including one with a gray knit top and draped navy drawstring skirt. Bartlett used metallic bits and pieces such as bronze to detail shoulders on tops as well as a silver sweatshirtlike top and metallic gray silk draped pants.
