RVN HOLIDAY 2013
For Holiday 2013, RVN travels back in time to the decadent era of the 1920s. The looks featured in this collection are inspired by Art Deco and Oriental motifs that became popular during this period. Rich jewel tones of amethyst, ruby, and emerald are complimented by metallic gold and silver, recalling the impossibly extravagent lifestyle of the Roaring Twenties.
An era of many intersecting styles and world views, RVN's latest collection draws heavily on the art and fashion movements of the the time. The emphasis on geometric forms arranged in symmetrical patterns is a nod to the Art Deco style of architecture, which took off in New York City with construction of the revolutionary Chrysler Building.
Eastern influence also enjoyed a resurgence in fashion and art, largely thanks to the excitement surrounding the Orient Express, an international European railway service synonymous with intrigue and luxury travel. The influence of ancient Chinese dragon paintings and the traditional silhouette of the Cheongsam dress are apparent throughout the collection, particularly in the bold Chinois lace patterns.
LOOK OF THE DAY
One of our most covetable looks for the holiday, the Oriental 3D Lurex Jacquard Dress was inspired by the intrigue surrounding the Orient Express in the 1920s. The European train service was the epitome of luxury travel, just as this dress will make you feel opulent and exotic at your holiday party.
