Interesting material play was at the core of Goga Ashkenazi’s strong resort lineup for Vionnet. While the designer looked to the house’s heritage for silhouettes — the Grecian-inspired, the handkerchief dresses — she made a statement with graphic textures and motifs, especially the dragonfly wing that she cited as a visual inspiration.

The veiny pattern was featured as a print on an elegant technical organza gown and raincoat that veered futuristic, and, more subtly, as a macramé lace bonded to netting for a reversible dress that was cut like a spiral. While the latter might sound overly intricate, it was executed with commercial appeal.

Vionnet’s new accessories were also noteworthy, including the Mosaic bag that was splattered with paint Jackson Pollock-style and the sandal sneakers that subtly resembled gladiator boots.
