"Butterfly Lovers" was the theme of Vivienne Tam's Spring 2010 Collection. If you don't know it's the Chinese "Romeo and Juliet" where in the story the star-crossed lovers transform into butterflies to live happily ever after together.
From colorful close up prints of butterflies to dresses that had cut outs alluding to the shape of a butterfly, to one of my favorites (at the bottom) a sequined jacket filled with a butterfly's spectrum of colors, Vivienne created a collection that carried on the butterfly theme unlike anything I have seen before. Outfits were also with these fabulous large fringed bags which gave the show a very hippie chic kind of look and attitude. And to remind of us of Vivienne's strong role in technology, models were seen holding her new HP clutch while the whole fashion show was the first to be broadcast live over the web. I'm sure the video will be up on the viviennetam.com site in the near future.
Here's a short clip of the runway show taken from my iPhone.
