Vera Wang Spring 2013 Collection

By Seaver Wong

Vera Wang’s latest collection lineup didn’t disappoint the audience. Her starting point of influence was in India, specifically, former Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru who served in the 20th Century. Wang’s influence from Indian culture was “loose” since she only used India’s opulence and palette. However, it served its purpose when she showed off her line of sportswear and dresses, which were adorned with bold colors such as cobalt blue, vibrant turquoise, emerald green, gold, and bright purple. Her use of white was displayed in an excellent way by one website. The main moment went to a gorgeous gold lace sheath with an embroidered back, a cool hammered bullion tank with an almost-racer back, and a deep V-cut evening dress. This would be a great dress to wear to at the red carpet or a summer wedding. One of her fine examples include Bermuda shorts and pajama trousers with lace tops. She also showed off her Bridal Collection, which were all red colored in contrast to the usual white color. No doubt heavily influenced by Chinese Culture, which signifies red as a color of good luck and prosperity as well as an acceptable color in wedding ceremonies. However, the main star of the show were the dresses which really used in Indian palette and it shows. It makes it that much more beautiful.
