Vera Wang's Plunge into Darkness for Spring 2010

Despite the typical array of colorful spring fashion collections from other designers, we are finding it a darker season, a cimmerian spring, if you must, than most for Vera Wang.

Note that when I say darker, I am referring to the designer's almost exclusive monochromatic choice of hues--creating for a rather cimmerian spring--and not her designs, which shone brighter than any light-brighted rainbow.

In her collection is clothing that, upon first glance, instantly brings to mind thoughts of Karl Lagerfeld-injected Chanel; Vera Wang’s dark visions for a cimmerian spring contain several desirable elements for those wanting to look put-together and sharp without trying too hard.
