On Our Radar: Vionnet-------
Vionnet chairman Matteo Marzotto and the label’s new designers, Barbara and Lucia Croce, gathered in Milan tonight to celebrate the opening of the label’s new boutique, its first directly owned flagship in the world. Everything in the shop, situated on the ground floor of Palazzo Premoli, pays homage to founder Madeleine Vionnet, from the interior design to the clothes on the racks. In addition to the house’s signature eveningwear, the store offers a demi-couture service done by tailors working in the adjoining atelier. And what’s a celebration without a little jewelry? To toast its opening, the Milan shop will exclusively carry this limited-edition chain necklace (left) in oxidized brass, featuring the house’s historic logo.
