Springtime for the East. Vivienne Tam made her mark bringing a tongue-in-cheek vision of Chinnoiserie and Asian motifs to fashion. In her book, China Chic, the designer talks about iconic themes and the color of red. This season however, I did not see any of that for Spring 2011.
What I did see was a pretty collection of muted blue and cream. Lace details and eyelet, some crochet. There were no literal references to her signature Eastern themes, but the design aesthetic came through in more subtle ways. The result was a lovely show of feminine ensembles that were perfect for play or dress-up.
