VicNate has released the lookbook following its Fall 2021 virtual showcase. Tagged “Venus” this highly anticipated collection features an irresistibly fresh take on the brand’s classic designs.
In a statement following the release, the brand wrote:
Venus is described as the brightest natural object in earth’s night sky after the moon, it is said to possess the ability to cast shadows, and is sometimes visible to the naked eye in broad daylight. Night on the other is the bridge between sunset and sunrise. VicNate continues to trace a trajectory that extols feminine strength, youth and never-ending joie de vivre through the juxtaposing of both phenomena. For fall, it was important to extol the idea of self-love and immersing one’s existence fully in the idea of comfort, personal taste, and happiness.
We were interested in making clothes that women could enjoy based on the feeling of wholeness and newness. The collection is replete with classic details, whimsical bows, décolletage and structured easiness, all explored in exciting jewel tones and black. It also extends its offering this season by introducing its new take on the puff sleeves, intricate hand beading and exciting fabrics.
Venus and night is a simple manifesto that shares our thoughts on the new “SEXY”.
