#NYFW VPL by Victoria Bartlett

By  September 15, 2009


It was early afternoon and everyone had just come from the most savory NYC lunch spots toting not the hottest bag or wearing the most mouthwatering jewelry but carrying their children! It was a very festive, warm, and celebratory atmosphere even before the show started. Bartlett’s collection titled “Atlas of Anatomy,” explored the reconstruction and deconstruction of garments through a series of looks in hues of black, navy, cream, orange and beige.  Transparent leggings, complex silhouettes, twisted chord knots, and sheer nudes were paired with sexy sequined undergarments. The knit accessories were by far the coolest and quirkiest element of the show. Bartlett took the opportunity to emphasize her anatomical inspiration in her creation of “backbone knits” and “sternum knits.” A homage to the skeleton never looked so fabulous.  -Alyssa Bernstein
