Ever since it was announced last year that Vanessa Seward would be leaving Azzaro, we've missed seeing her super-pretty, need-to-wear-it-now pieces and wondered when we would get a glimpse of her design talent next. Happily, Seward's recent collaboration with A.P.C. has offered us everything we've been missing.
Though the capsule collection, which debuted just yesterday on Elle.com, is well-edited (there's only a dozen looks), each piece is stylish, timeless and can be worn for many different occasions. According to the press release, "both A.P.C. and Vanessa Seward met through their mutual admiration for each other’s designs," and the resulting collection is "a collaboration in the true sense, retaining the spirit of each designer."
Indeed, the clean simple lines as well as the slightly 70s silhouettes have A.P.C. written all over it, while the choice of more couture-like fabrics, such as brocade and lurex and silk mousseline, is undoubtedly Seward's doing. In other words, mission accomplished: the collaboration is truly a great marriage.
