“Lightness, easiness, freedom. Those are the ideas I was thinking off for this collection. It’s about dynamic women today, women in motion. Controlled and free, living life, reality and believability. There is always a duality in women, moving between different ideas, different moods. I want clothes that move with a woman, that move with her life.” – VB
Watch the entire show and relive the moment when Jennifer Lopez walks the runway in the dress she made famous. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Jungle print is reprised on the Versace runway in tropical green and fire orange-pink palettes. At the 2000 Grammy Awards, Jennifer Lopez garnered international attention when she wore the unique runway design.
Presented in its original version, the palm trees are juxtaposed with different treatments and fabrications. The motif is depicted on metal mesh, embellished with crystals or complemented with tie-dye. Shirts adorned with Jungle details are layered under corset bodices with graphic heart-shaped, heritage necklines. The pattern is also introduced on Squalo sneakers and beaded as a three-dimensional décor on Virtus handbags.
“To know that in oneself, waiting to be found, there is a light. What the light reveals is danger, and what it demands is faith.” Inspired by Richard Avedon and James Baldwin’s book, “Nothing Personal,” designer Bibhu Mohapatra created his Spring-Summer 2020 collection.
However, I should mention that “Nothing Personal” was not just a book, or any ordinary project, but a major collaboration that began in 1963 during a time of civil crisis by former high school friends. The collaboration between author James Baldwin and photographer Richard Avedon explored the individuality and identity of Americans. Bibhu Mohapatra Spring Summer 2020 collection celebrates the American beauty and its diverse identity of strength, courage, and originality.
Known for his elegant designs and the love of vibrant colors, luxurious fabrics, and crafts from his native land, Orissa, India, Bibhu Mohapatra consistently raises the bar each fashion season with his collections. His unique twist on the classic and traditional has won the hearts of celebrities, making him one of the top choices for red carpet looks.
Bibhu Mohapatra Spring-Summer 2020 collection was revealed during a runway presentation during New York Fashion Week at Spring Studios. The cast of models for his New York Fashion Week presentation further reinforced his commit to diversity, strength, courage, and originality. Sheer fabrics, tulles, and lace emerged out of the darkness revealing light, transparency, and a sense of freedom. While the vibrant colors of the collection revealed courage, strength, and the need for individuality without compromise. The juxtapose of the opposing elements in the collection is what makes this season’s collection probably one of my favorites. You could be whoever you want to be at any time of the day without compromising style, grace, and glamour, and still be sexy, beautiful, and powerful.
