Last season, Victoria Bartlett initiated a new phase of VPL
, effectively relaunching her brand as a line of high-style performancewear. This time out, she made more changes, showing a concise ten looks via digital presentation, wherein a number of Bartlett's cool-girl pals demonstrated the functionality of the clothes. The aesthetic remained very classic VPL—lots of gussets, color-blocking, and so on—but the focus here was on construction and fabrication that served performance. The classic VPL bra, for instance, which underpinned so many of the label's looks over the years, was remade to be properly supportive. Materials that wick were emphasized throughout. Ditto waterproofing. Meanwhile, the biggest evolution here in terms of style found Bartlett deploying some uncharacteristically laddish silhouettes—baggy skater shorts and track suits, for example. All in all, it was another fine example of workout chic.
