I first heard of Vena Cava on the infamous Gossip Girl through Blake Lively who donned a gorgeous romper by the label. I was hooked. At NYFW, they did not disappoint. Designers Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai showcased stellar designs at the Brooklyn-based Milk Studios. "The Vena Cava girl is wearing luxury accessories like a quirky art dealer, not like a lady who lunches." Rightly said, and holds true for the show. There was everything from acid washed pieces in deep browns, fierce orange laser-cut tops and empire waist cuts revamped. There was even a zipper front dress, which immediately forced me to covet. Silver crepe blazers, pyramid studs, safety pin details (yep, you heard that right), bustiers and LBD's galore. Where the fabrics are concerned, georgettes and chiffons ruled the runway. There was some amazing eyewear to boot, as well. Peresol, I hear. They were wearing armfuls of Tiffany and Co. (Tiffany!) and Elsa Peretti.The notoriously wearable label is at it again.
