There's a reason Victoria Bartlett's Spring theme, anatomy, felt so right. "I probably should have been a doctor," she said. "I'm obsessed with anything related to the human body." After all, the designer's aesthetic is heavy on bandaged jersey dresses, spliced knits, and sheer fabrics. Her current collection didn't stray from these VPL
staples but built on them with the addition of prints—a first for the brand. Don't expect florals here, though: Bartlett used an X-ray of her skull she had blown up into abstraction. Elsewhere, gauzy vests and cardigans hinted at the motif while adding a lightness that's emerged as an early trend in the New York collections. The diagnosis? Many standout pieces Bartlett's fans will want to further examine.
