Rich colors of crimson, purple, brown and teal gave the Vivienne Tam collection a warm coziness this season. Known for incorporating Asian motifs into her work, the fall collection was more subtle in its influence.
There was a dragon embroidery, some scrolls and a diagonal neck finish for references to Eastern style. More striking, were the different scales of chevron patterns and ombre stripes. As was the big trend for Fall 2012, fur collars were a major part of this collection. For Vivienne Tam, they were often Mongolian lamb, dyed in complementary colors to the rich palette of the season.
Vivienne Tam is a designer I often buy for myself for their witty use of traditional images in pop colors. I am a fan of her colors, her silhouettes and especially her prints! I can't wait for this collection to hit the stores.
