“The colors are vibrant and there is a little influence of Latin America,” said Vionnet owner and creative director Goga Ashkenazi of resort. While silhouettes had a Forties and Seventies feel, Ashkenazi actually took cues from a dress designed by Madeleine Vionnet in the Twenties featuring a horse motif. She used this in several ways, from a striking print on a belted cotton top and a bias-cut dress to a leather intarsia on a ponyskin cape. Elsewhere, Ashkenazi played with surface details by embellishing a pair of flared pants with hand-painted plastic petals.
