Runway Report: VPL Spring 2010

Victoria Bartlett showed her spring 2010 collection for VPL at Pier 59 studios today. Titled "Atlas of Anatomy", Bartlett presented a series of deconstructed and reconstructed looks in shades of navy, black, cream, orange and beige with a little help from her accessory designing friends — Aran Baik knits, Lizzie Fortunato and Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer jewelry, and LD Tuttle footwear.

Always interested in manipulating shapes to create a complex silhouette, Bartlett shined in transparent leggings, an alabaster tunic with twisted cord knots, and the 16-look finale section of sheer nudes paired with shoulder pads or layered over sequined undergarments.

Also of note, a navy parachute fabric used for bloomers and jumpers, a coral shift dress with matching leggings, and the organically shaped Lizzie Fortunato for VPL necklaces in bone, rope, wood, and resin.

Bartlett used accessories to further her anatomical statement, and the aforementioned knits played a major role in pushing the theme. There were 'vertebrae knits' and 'sternum knits' — beautiful bits of yarn twisted together over the shoulder or neck, referencing the obvious skeletal structure.
