Vena Cava Fall 2011 Runway Review

I was mainly excited for Vena Cava’s collection this season because one of my favorite jewelry brands, Dannijo, would be supplying the jewelry to complement the fashions. Plus, any show that starts with gift bags that include Proper Attire condoms is pretty much guaranteed to be a good time, and so was the case at Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock’s show at MAC & Milk Studios this season.

The designers showed pieces that stayed true to their vintage, boho-inspired aesthetic with a collection that was rife with breezy silhouettes, long skirts, and plenty of prints. The metal-worked long and short choker-style necklace, the statement metal earrings, and the dainty black berets worn by many of the models were perfect for adding structure to many of the looks, which were often free-flowing and casual.

Sexier pieces with a 90s touch were also in the mix and included wedges, cropped and off-the-shoulder tops, cut-out dresses, high waist pants and skirts, feminine mini dresses, and fitted cropped jackets.
