• Vetements - SS '16

    Only four seasons later, Vetements (French for "clothing") is on top of their game, playing by their own rules ... which appear to be few and far between. Georgian-born designer Demna Gvasalia quit his comfortable, yet frustrating position at Louis Vuitton to start his own brand (with two partners), and has since taken the Paris-based collective down a short road full of freakishly oversized pieces, borrowed graphics, and no-nonsense nonsense. Vetements, sold as womenswear, but donned and walked by female and male alike, is happy to be turning the fashion world a bit on it's head with it's ready-to-wear wares.

    Gvasalia, who took over Alexander Wang's seat at Balenciaga last Fall seems to be having the time of his life splitting his energy between the two very different houses. Whether you hate it or love it, Vetements' influential style is fast spreading across the fashion world. Heck, I'm even getting in to it. Current outfit; ripped up blue jeans where one of the legs has been ripped clean off, and a size 4X Gildan tee that says "Home Wrecker" and has a pic of a demolition crane on it. All this for only $11 instead of $4,200. It's fresh, it's new, it's "why not".

    Vetements A
    "Coming Soon" Titanic Hoodie - $885. Yes US Dollars, not Pesos.

    Vetements B
    Vetements Sweatsuit - $1400 (platform rain boots not included)

    "Hello Boys!!" Modern Trench - $1,795. Studded Floor belt - $2,000

    Vetements D
    Lime green suit - If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

    Vetements E
    Floral Dress - $1,985 (and the year I started skateboarding)

    Vetements F
    Vetements open back dress - $2,150.  Girl peeing in corner - again, if you have to ask, you can't afford it.
