Joan Vaccianna has earned a reputation in the fashion world as an expert at creating precisely tailored pieces with slim silhouettes and basic color palettes. Her most recent show during this year’s Brooklyn Fashion Weekend was true to form and proved why Vaccianna’s line is so sought after. The clothing was deceptively simple, as all of the details were so exquisite that the garments looked casually fabulous. And we all know that making a collection look effortless is one of the toughest things to master.

The use of gold buttons was carried throughout the collection and this embellishment made a bold statement. It was noteworthy because this accessory commanded attention with a whisper. The men’s suiting for women was so boy meets girl, and was very on-trend.

Exact cuts gave the pieces a sophisticated feel that further highlighted the designer’s talent for creating chic looks. Ruffles and suspender shorts gave the garments a sense of whimsy that spoke to the crowd. Joan Vaccianna exhibited growth and maturity with her latest collection, and rumor has it the she pulled this line together in just a few weeks. Now, that is talent!
