If you have been a fan of ours you know that design and production quality rank high on our priority list for any product we carry. Over the past 7 years at Secret Location we have collected a special selection of women’s clothing that we refer to as The Vault. These items rank at the top of this scale, showcasing exceptional construction and design details.
As part of our 7th year Anniversary celebrations this week we chose to highlight The Vault with an installation in store. Here you will get a peak at some of the items that we hold very near and dear to our fashion loving hearts. And even though these items are from seasons past, their style and craftsmanship are eternal.
We carried David Koma’s collections in store for many seasons before he took over the reigns at Thierry Mugler. His designs have always been strong, concise and fabulous for the female form.
First we have a long sleeve dress from his F/W15 collection. It is fully embellished with small pieces of mirror and Swarovski crystals in a mesmerizing pattern giving it the look of the most glamorous armour anyone has ever worn.
Simone Rocha conveyed all sides of romance in her SS/15 collection. All the way from the dark side of it to the light and beautiful. This silver floral brocade dress with the lurid marabou snaking around the skirt is definitely a symbol of the happier side of romance.
In 2012 Josep Font was given the task to revive Spanish brand Delpozo. In his six years as Creative Director he was able to continue the legacy of dramatic, colourful, eccentric collections that often employed couture techniques and silhouettes.
First we have a bold orange beauty from a collection inspired by Josef Alber’s “Interaction of Color”. The collection was bright and playful, bobbinet tulle was used to create a dense fringe like effect at the hemline along with hand applied floral embellishments. The sculptural neckline is accentuated by the off the shoulder drop sleeves.
Our second DelPozo gown has a delicate Peter Pan collar of grey organza peeking out of an intense hand embellished bodice featuring bronze abstract shapes, beads and floral cut outs. Completed in the most elegant of empire waist skirts of flowing chiffon. There are numerous layers to create a flourish of fabric as you walk in the dress.
Before Anthony Vaccarello was designing for Yves Saint Laurent, we were carrying his own label at Secret Location. Kept in our Vault since 2014, this lambskin dress with a heavy metal ruffle over one shoulder is a clear example of Anthony’s design aesthetic and craftsmanship.
