After a weekend of browsing the September issues and with Fashion’s Night Out tomorrow, how could we not post about one of our favorite design houses to have reinvented itself in the past two years.
While Madeleine Vionnet was known for her art of beautifully draping a woman, the collections being shown by new owner Matteo Marzotto (fomerly CEO of Valentino) and designer Rodolfo Paglialunga (who worked with Miuccia Prada for years) are anything but demure.
We do love the brand’s new contemporary style and how it hasn’t lost the essence of innovative elegance that made Vionnet so famous. Aren’t these lovelies perfect for the coming fall /resort season?

very very vonderful! va va va vionnet!
So funny – I was just thinking the same thing the other day when I saw Madonna in that beautiful Vionnet dress. I was a little worried when I heard they were moving the classic French label to Milan, but I agree, its modernized take still has much of the same innovative touches!
Holy smokes…love love that dress and that coat….fabulous!
I am loving the cuff!! xx
Oh I could wear that bracelet!
Those tribal shoes are to die for! So glad you found your way to Strong Sense of Style. Very kind of you to drop by w a thank you. It was my pleasure…. your orchids truly are the best!
L-O-V-E Vionnet! That first image is perfection. Can’t wait for fashion week to start : ) xx Kelly
