Lookbook: Vlisco’s “Hero” Collection

Vlisco’s new collection “Hero” is a definite must-have for those wanting to portray an empowered femininity through their wears, or for those who like to be courageous with print. 

Designed by Belgian designer Harvey Bouterse (and seemingly inspired by Japanese film Hero, with its Kimono-style sleeves and wide Obi-like belts), Vlisco’s collection includes clashing print on suits, shorts and structured dresses.

its premier 2014 Collection christened “Hero” (though I would have preferred a more gender-specific term like “Shero”), Vlisco seeks to underscore the “empowered femininity” and courage women take to look unique regardless of daily challenges that beleaguer them.

The Collection features models in leather-infused ensembles, boyshorts, edgy blazers, cigarette pants, pencilskirts with some pieces having asymmetrical hemlines. Models were styled in matching wide brim cinchbelts and sleek pointy toe heels against Cubist backdrop. I particularly love the design aesthetics and the ingenious”clashing” of fabrics as this adds to the hauntingly alluring quality of the Collection. Also, minimalist approach as regards to styling was employed too. Without much ado, have a peek at my favourite looks below!
