Vivienne Hu is paying tribute to Americana and the romanticism of the Southwest!
The New York-based designer showcased 40 new looks that included handbags, footwear and accessories at her FW20 runway presentation during NYFW: The Shows 2020 at Spring Studios on Friday (February 7) in New York City.
Playing on old Americana soul and neutrals hues of the canyons, the designer describes the new pieces as “cowboy chic essentials,” featuring dreamy fighter pilot leatherwear and smartly tailored down jackets.
“I was inspired by the beauty and sheer magnitude of the great American Southwest. I think it was Antelope Canyon that first stole my breath away,” said Hu in a statement. “In this collection, I hope to capture the nostalgia of witnessing such natural grandeur while playing on the lore of the west.”
The stunning presentation also featured collaborations with Sustainable Fur producer, Saga Furs and Luxury Danish Jewelry line, Shamballa Jewels. The final runway look boasted an impressive price tag of $200,000 with its diamond and gold embellished gown.
Vivienne Hu’s powerfully feminine collections pair classic silhouettes with modern details. Her architectural structures are strongly inspired by the spirit of downtown New York, where the brand has found a home. Her collection has been gracing New York Fashion Week since 2014 and includes womenswear, handbags, shoes, accessories and cosmetics.
