style.com is re-issuing vetements’ game-changing first collection
If you want to own a piece from the Vetements archive, this is your chance.
Good news for fans of Vetements, (we're looking at you Whoopi Goldberg): style.com has announced it will re-issue some of the brand's most iconic and widely-loved pieces from its debut fall/winter 14 collection.
The 36-piece collection, exclusive to style.com, is made up of instantly recognizable items including hooded sweatshirts, oversized leather jackets, and the cult label's classic step-hem jeans. Vetements co-founder Demna Gvasalia worked closely with style.com's fashion director, Yasmin Sewell, to reproduce the collection, describing it as a "homage' to the luxury e-commerce destination which has "has played such an important role for our generation." To celebrate the collection, style.com is also launching a series of features on Vetements, including an in-depth interview with Gvasalia.
One of many celebrities flying the Vetements flag is, of course, Whoopi, who recently wore a 'May the bridges I burn light the way' hoodie on The View. Discussing the sweater, Whoopi said, "I wanted to wear that so people understood where I was coming from. I didn't give a shit if people didn't understand what we were doing, if they didn't like what we were doing. I'll burn the fucking bridge!"
VETEMENTS 1ST SEASON will be available in the UK exclusively on style.com on Friday, September 30.
