Fashion Week: Vivienne Tam

What: clothes inspired by the Chinese opera. Tailoring is dramatic with high mandarin collar or collars that cascades down the neck.

Take away: prints that are rich with Asian influence mix with intricate appliques. Separates flow easily in easy to wear knits and flowing pants. Dresses in silk prints flow graciously down the body. Intricate appliques and crotchet throughout that gives an east meets west feel.

What we love: the tailored coats, and dresses in silk prints and appliques. The flapper cocktail dress evokes 1920s Shanghai.
