Eccentric. That was a vibe of Vivienne Tam’s Fall 2016 collection. Suede patchwork stripes in midi skirts and satin kimono pant suites. It was a trip into the mind of one of fashion’s most imaginative forces. In addition to covetable clothing, the runway served as the official debut of JOY & PEACE x VIVIENNE TAM, Tam’s collaboration with the leading women’s footwear brand in China and Hong Kong. The custom designed footwear is “inspired by the journey along the new Silk Road, blending influences from indigenous cultures into a harmonious mosaic, to explore a sojourn of joy and peace,” states Vivienne Tam. Leather laser cut knee boots with gold embellished heels and ankle boots, as well as embroidered suede leather pumps featuring Chinese Fire Cloud pattern accents, are rendered in black, pewter and burgundy. Don’t be surprised if they pop up in BELLA’s Fall 2016 Accessories Report.
