Scarf dressing comes with the territory at Vionnet, where the resort collection was built on the signature crepe de chine scarf dresses, crafted from scarf folds, and also a bold, ethnic print in bright blue, red and gold, reworked from a vintage foulard. “The shapes are very simple, but with the print it becomes more exotic,” said designer Rodolfo Paglialunga, who splashed the print across a cotton coatdress, as well as various silk shifts. The scarf motif worked quite well, with several beauties in the category, including a deep blue gown that could be worn two ways. But Paglialunga put the emphasis on day clothes, too, with a striped tunic that was shown over red silk pants but could be worn alone as a dress, and some short-sleeve sweaters emblazoned with beaded elephants that added a playful kitsch factor. The same multicolored beading appeared on shoes, one of the collection’s highlights.
