Laura Vassar and Kristopher Brock are experts in reviving old-school romanticism on the runway. Their SS20 show gives us ideas on what to wear this spring namely billowy puffy or ruffle sleeves, full-skirt silhouettes, big bow accents, elevated shirtdresses, botanical prints, and deep scoop necklines. The grandiose retro pieces are modernized via jeans, pants, and cool details. It is the same dreamy vision they started with 5 years ago, yet adjusted to meet current aesthetics and needs. The intricacy of the styles lies in the fact that they cannot be easily reproduced in terms of pattern-making. The designer duo excels at finding balance between what is ‘too much’ and what is ‘too less’. The silhouettes apply successfully to more than one body shape and the final outfits remain timeless within anyone’s closet. We are faced with real investment pieces that carry with them a desire to include the history of fashion in whatever is wearable today.
