VFW SS 2010: Lav & Kush
Vancouver Fashion Week Tuesday, November 10, 2009
Local eco-friendly label Lav & Kush presented one of the better collections at Vancouver Fashion Week on Friday night. The show opened on a strong note with tailored gray dresses featuring wonderful attention to detail, proving that eco fashion can be more haute than hippie. The sheath dress in particular demonstrated sophisticated old school glamour reminiscent of Roland Mouret's 'Galaxy' dress.
I felt like Lav & Kush's collection had two design stories rather than one. There seemed to be a new direction--the uber feminine gray structured dresses--and the draped jersey pieces that were comfortable, easy to wear, and undoubtedly fan favourites. Separates and dresses in the latter category came in a palette of jewel-toned blues, pinks, and purples, as well as an array of neutrals. The collection also featured slip dresses and feminine skirts in a variety of pretty florals. My personal favourites included a blue asymmetrical mini dress with ruching up the sides and a draped sleeve, and a black-and-cream patterned silky dress with a high-necked bow.
With pieces ranging from girly to womanly, it's easy to see why Lav & Kush describes itself as the "flirt of eco fashion."
