since i know VPL has a few eclectic tFS followers, here is a sneak view and an artcile to match, from wwd



Quote:
VPL: Just when you thought Victoria Bartlett couldn’t get any more imaginative, she amazes her fans with another season of great pieces. Working in a perfect palette of pale gray, faded teal and nude, with accents of acid yellow and white, she showed tanks, shorts, T-shirts, miniskirts, bodysuits and all manner of underwear that moved with great humor, flair and energy.

These clothes defy categorizing. They come close to being lingerie, but then they also could be daring sportswear, funky active looks or maybe something brand-new. But no matter the category, they were all terribly clever, and so was the designer’s choice of venue. She held her show at The Gym, where models pretended to work out, some wearing what the designer called “beads-of-sweat” necklaces, which were terrific, large plastic creations from Josh Hickey. Bartlett’s adroit humor was also evident in her layered cotton voile tanks, vein-printed boy-cut shorts, the blue cotton Lycra T-shirt and underwear skirts. And, just in case you were waiting for someone to finally invent that sweat-proof, cellophane capelet, Bartlett delivered it. Another curiosity: most of the looks had halter-strapped football shoulder pads. Who knows why, but it still looked fabulous.

This is one of my favourite collections of all time simply for the way that it was presented. I adore Lisa working out there!

Who is the model jumping rope? At first glance I thought it was Sessilee but she didn't do VPL.
