Has there ever been a more fun and inspiring collection than Vivetta Resort 2016? Well maybe, but I am absolutely smitten with this collection, so it’s being placed at the very top of collection favourites to date. The obvious thing to love about Vivetta is the surrealist elements of her designs – the hands collars are ingenious – they are forward thinking yet actually wearable, and undeniably adorable. The collection was styled by superstar stylist, Leith Clark, and I absolutely adore how she has paired pastels with bold colours, creating incredibly striking visuals that just enhance the surrealist nature of the collection. I personally love mixing pastels with more primary colours, so this is a collection after my own heart. I wish I could pick one look that is my favourite, but I genuinely love them all equally. However, I will say, those ankle strap heels with bows are to.die.for.
Vivetta‘s signature style has always been one of surrealism, vintage silhouettes, clean lines with an odd femininity to them. It’s a style I can really get down with. While it may not feel like Fall at all yet, and well, it isn’t Fall yet, I’m starting to figure out what sort of things I’d like to be wearing during the colder months. Vivetta F/W 2014 has been a real inspiration for me. Just because it’s fall/winter doesn’t mean we need to put away the bright hues. In fact, there may not be a better time than during the grey and dreary days to adorn ourselves in cheery colors. I love the pops of surrealism in Vivetta’s garments. It’s probably my favourite part, aside from the vintage inspired silhouettes. It’s the right amount of classic with an undeniable originality that makes them stand-out as a brand that is wholly it’s own. I’ve really been feeling matching sets lately (like the image above), and I think I’m going to need to find myself a few to add to my closet. Maybe I’ll even treat myself to a piece from this brand. Although, I’ll probably only be able to afford the hands collar, which is fine, because it’s basically the best thing ever created.
