For designers undertaking FW collections, it might seem arbitrary to default to darker hues.
But for Australian designer Paul Vasileff, he appeared to be inspired by and transported by Tchaikovsky’s moving Nutcracker suite. Couture looks of his FW 2019 collection are all-things girly with swatches of lace embroidery, tulle, and glimmer, and whimsical with silk and crystal adornments. Other pieces feature ruffles and feather elements for texture.
Many of the pieces remind me of Elie Saab, as they feature the mainstays of ethereal shimmer and movement of fabrics.
This is the dress that truly sold me and made me think of The Nutcracker. The ornate chest and sleeves of this beautiful lace dress are evocative of a toy soldier’s jacket trim and buttons. No need for the identical black and red to make the similarity known.
Mackenzie Foy, Clara from The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, was fittingly one of the first to wear a piece from the collection. Foy donned a tea length beige dress with intricate lace overlays of whimsical carousel horses.
This dress, with the shimmer and the ombred (perhaps cotton candy??) hues, to me, is a direct representation of the Land of the Sweets, and perhaps even Keira Knightley’s Sugarplum Fairy. It is a stunning gown but the ombre just adds another dimension, another realm of glamour.
What do you think of the collection, fashionistas? I feel transported to at least three of the four realms and when I go see the film this weekend, I will have toured them all!
