Menswear-influenced styles at Vivienne Tam
At NY Fashion Week, Vivienne Tam's line for women is influenced by menswear
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Vivienne Tam took a distinct cue from menswear for her fall collection at New York Fashion Week.

The designer sent her models down the runway Wednesday in men's striped wide-leg trousers, tweed trousers and a zigzag print on a soft wool men's coat. But Tam made efforts to make the pieces more feminine, adding a leather waistband or making a men's blazer in a jacquard fabric.

Tam stayed true to her East-meets-West sensibility, calling the collection "Shangri-la Remix." She appliqued a tweed dress with a dragon and used intricate, black and red see-through dragon lace to create a dress. The model wore it over a white sleeveless shirt.



The show's notes said the collection was "city modern" and "street sleek tailoring" meeting ethnic elements.

The runway ended with a pair of one-shouldered gowns, one red with a high neck and the other blue and black with a peek-a-boo cut at the right hip.

Models wore high heel ankle booties in brown, red and black. Tam accessorized her looks with collar, scarfs and ruffs.
