Vivienne Tam 2011 Fall/Winter Collection

Vivienne Tam’s Fall 2011 collection was all about duality. The balance of new and old, ancient and modern. She talks about contradictions and being inspired by the 600-yr old Chinese Kun Opera and the Guangzhou Opera House created by Zaha Hadid, an avant-garde temple where the opera is performed. Her Fall 2011 collection turns the elaborate costumes of the Kun opera into everyday wear using tweed and wool for both day and night as well as silks and lace in different weights.

 Vivienne Tam’s silhouettes were feminine, harmonious, elegant – just simply exquisite. Each look (mostly dark and moody but being inspired by an opera, I can understand why) was completely chic and fabulous. She featured crocheted knits and as you can see in the first photo – flapper dresses (there was a great black flapper dress but unfortunately I didn’t get a photo – you will see it in the finale video). I love Vivienne Tam’s use of fringe, I always thought fringe was so sassy (this might be my love of singer Tina Turner).

 Simply put, i loved Vivienne tam’s fall 2011 collection, I hope to add several of her pieces to my closet. Enjoy the finale video below
