Enchanted Garden, the latest collection from international luxury fashion label, VANESSA G LONDON, brings international style and couture to South Africa in an explosion of vivid jewel-tones, graphic prints and bold, feminine shapes.
Synonymous with highly creative prints and beautiful bespoke designs, The Enchanted Garden Collection combines the designer’s signature “Art’Outure” with three interweaving stories; ‘Flower Fields’, ‘Enchanted Forest’ and ‘Enchanted Garden’.
Flower Fields: Inspired by the beauty of flowers this line incorporates beautifully tailored collar suit jackets as well as skirts which have a silhouette reminiscent of the swinging sixties. Details in the collection include cap sleeves and retro necklines.
Enchanted Garden: The fantastical images of enchanted gardens explore the everyday journey through life printed against Vanessa’s signature piece, the classic trench coat. Again we see a modern twist to include leather detailing and a palette which contrasts perfectly with flattering black and sheer fabrics.
Enchanted Forest: Enchanted Forest depicts floral trees, symbolic of journeys past. The clever tailoring of this line draws the eye upwards the neckline and their flattering silhouettes. We see a collarless skirt suit set against a more relaxed baby-doll dress and a chic all-white collared blouse and skirt combination.
The three prints elevate the visual aesthetic into the world of fantasy, combining the richest autumnal hues with luxurious fabrics and elegant cuts. The feminine silhouettes take inspiration from classic eras in fashion; drawing upon the glamour of the 1950’s, the experimental shapes of the 1960’s and the 1970’s concept of power dressing.
In line with international fashion trends of sharp tailoring and dramatic prints in overripe hues, cinched in waists, printed trench coats and chic tailored dresses sit alongside fitted pencil skirts and cashmere soft knits, with strikingly detailed and flamboyant constructions of foliage, utilizing dreamscape images and surreal topography.
The unique VANESSA G fashion label, has a global celebrity following and is the brainchild of Vanessa Gounden, one of South Africa’s most successful female entrepreneurs.
