Harvey Nichols Kuwait sure knows how to pick the next best thing to look out for and get us talking. Pair this with Marco De Vincenzo’s imaginative styles always turning heads on the catwalk. Because Marco De Vincenzo hails from a different mindset of stylistic expression, his bold yet chic choices are one to be very intrigued by. Our intrigue was only heightened when we learned that Harvey Nichols Kuwait were to reveal his anticipated AW 2017 Collection in Grand Avenue – The Avenues, in the form of a lavish event. Bold fashion statements, beautiful silhouettes and Harvey Nichols? Yes, please!
The event provided a great opportunity to view items from the collection, so that we as interested consumers could both appreciate the art of fashion and get our pick from the cream of the crop. While viewing, we were able to take in the geometrical approach that Marco De Vincenzo is known for infusing into his collections. Wild patterns, prints and colors are used to make bold statements, and the only way to describe its artful outcome is by seeing its luxury in real-time for yourself.
Staged models wore his creations gracefully, displaying a finish that is anything but ordinary. Patterns and colors were a recurring theme: from striped dresses, to florals, watercolor splatters and vague animal-like prints; all topped off with splashes of unexpected color throughout. And what’s even more enchanting is the range of wear his collection has: Smart casual, mildly dressy, but perfect for everyday wear. Let’s just put it this way: with their respective outfits, models had paired shoes varying from converse sneakers to crystal encrusted ankle boots.
Another interesting factor we noticed about Marco de Vincenzo’s line is the way his styles were presented was like taking a trip through time. The eclectic vibe of his AW 2017 collection was so reminiscent of decades ranging from the 1960s to modern day fashion. Mod-inspired straight cut silhouettes paired with coiffed hairdos had us feeling like we wanted to dance the twist all night long, as long as our feet were wedged into those delicious-looking fur trimmed strappy sandals some of the models were wearing. Modern fashion made us smile with the work-friendly tie waist trouser and blouse set paired with comfortable Converse-esque sneakers, inspiring us to imitate such looks for casual meetings, coffee dates and 9-5s for the rest of the season.
Personal favorites from Marco De Vincenzo’s AW 2017 collection also included the striped frock with a ruffle neckline, falling at a conservative length and shape yet exuding a chic, polished finish for any event. The patterned pleated skirt shimmering a watercolor type pattern that still manages to display delicateness due to the sheer luxury of the fabric’s quality. And then of course, we can’t forget about those stunning, stunning crystal boots. Paired with what seemed to be a complementary crystal-studded overcoat, the entire look had just summed up the fact that Marco De Vincenzo’s AW 2017 collection was in fact, a fashion dream world.
Marco De Vincenzo is said to showcase an overuse of symmetry to make a bold statement. At the launch event, we witnessed this, and in our opinions believe it works. We are beyond excited that he has chosen to exclusively house his collection in Harvey Nichols Kuwait, and can’t wait to get shopping for the start of the season.
