INTO THE ARCHIVES... Madeleine Vionnet 1930 and Vionnet SS||2013

Whenever arrives a new creative director at an heritage label like maison Vionnet, the debut collection is most likely based on a strong archive exploit and the SS||2013 collection, designed under the new creative director Goga Ashkenazi is no exception. Madeleine Vionnet, the inventor of the bias cut and asymmetric necklines, has created this wonderful goddess dress in 1930 [left] and it is still more than up to date and wearable today in its re-elaborated version [right].
