Vetements – Editorial Review Fall/Winter 2015

October 30, 2015

Vetements has become one of the most coveted brands in the world since its mysterious inception. It has taken centre stage ever since Demna Gvasalia was named Balenciaga’s new creative director. He is one of seven designers who are the masterminds behind this eclectic minimalist Parisian brand that speaks out against commercialization. Their aesthetic ensures that wearers can create their own style identity regardless of current trends. More importantly, their uncomplicated designs give consumers the opportunity to emphasize certain pieces from their outfit.


For instance, their t-shirts are the best pieces to go with large fur gilets that can be worn with a knee-length leather skirt. Gloves may seem old-fashioned, but leather ones bring the edge and elevates any look to high fashion glamour. The look is a more refined version of punk and is perfect for street style moments that rival The Sex Pistols and is Lou Reed cool.

In addition, large fur overcoats with midi skirts and boots are the perfect combination for the more feminine crowd who want to add presence to their outfit. Vetements’ items slither into the background as more elaborate pieces take centre stage. The wearer takes control of their outfit with Vetements on their side as they understand that it should showcase their essence.

The bohemian would rather just stand back from the crowd in a pair of cuffed blue jeans and one of Vetements’ simple button-down shirts. Tattered brown boots and a wide skirt add a unique feature to the understated look. A whole image can be cultivated around Vetements’ clothes that cannot be found in other brands.
