Vivi Zubedi NYFW FW18
Vivi Zubedi’s designs adhere to being sleek, modest, and luxury.
Winter can be a boring and an uninspiring season for most. Often, it is the time of year where thing’s run slow, and fashion looks the same. Being drawn to the more colorful spectrum, I often see how often people wear very similar clothes – with plain black jackets. This is not always limited to the winter months, I see people wear similar, standard looks year round as well. Vivi Zubedi challenges the norm, by bringing more (colorful) blacks, and awe-inspiring looks that can brighten up anyone’s cold winter day.
I think the major difference with Zubedi’s FW18 collection is that even though there is a lot of pieces in the darker, black spectrum, she mixes it up with the style of the outfits, accessories and fabircs such as lace, beads, studs, embroidery, and a little bit of color; greens, whites, blacks, blues. Even the color-pop with lipstick. The looks are modest, yet colorful by design. I love the casual mix of sneakers and caps with ordinarily high-end luxury looks.
My favorite of all, is the navy blue piece that reminds me of midnight stars in a winter night’s sky.
