Vivre Canvas Couture S/S 2018 Collection
Why hang beautiful art on the wall when you can just wear it?
Vivre's designs are just that, a canvas that you can actually wear! As opposed to their 2017 collection, the SS 2018 collection, Concrete Jungle, consists of neutral colors. The pieces, designed by Kristen Alyce, were hand painted by artist, Amanda Wilson, with the inspiration being the architecture of the city. According to the designers, "THEIR CREATION WILL HAVE BETWEEN 25-80 HOURS OF HANDS ON ATTENTION BETWEEN DESIGNER, ARTIST, AND SEAMSTRESSES" (The Story, www.vivrecouture.com). The designs had an element of sophistication and elegance. The paintings were tastefully added to the garments without overpowering them. The show took place during Couture Fashion week in New York City, on September 9, 2017.
We are excited to see more of the brand in the future!
