Vetements returned to the runway for the Fall/Winter 2024 season with a signature flourish: audacious excess. Guram Gvasalia, the label’s co-founder, presented a 90-look collection dominated by outsized silhouettes, pushing the boundaries of proportion and wearability.

The show opened with gargantuan tailoring, featuring jackets boasting shoulders padded with pool noodle-like tubes. This oversized aesthetic continued with body-hugging tanks paired with mega jeans that trailed on the floor. The evening segment offered a surprising contrast, showcasing figure-hugging jersey gowns adorned with a seemingly endless supply of crystals. Supermodel Carmen Kass and actress Marcia Cross strutted the runway in these shimmering numbers, the latter grappling humorously with the gown’s dramatic train.

Gvasalia‘s playful spirit was evident throughout the collection. Playful winks included a Donatella Versace look alike sauntering down the runway and a sweatshirt emblazoned with the South Park character Towlie. A collaboration with Jean-Charles de Castelbajac revived the designer’s iconic teddy bear coats, reimagined with Vetements’ signature oversized flair.

The show wasn’t without its stumbles. A model wearing a refrigerator-sized pantsuit took a tumble on the runway, highlighting the impracticality of some looks. However, the incident didn’t deter Gvasalia, who continued to send out an endless stream of outlandish garments.

Vetements Fall/Winter 2024 is a collection guaranteed to spark conversation. While the commitment to excess might not break entirely new ground, it serves as a reminder of Gvasalia’s ability to push boundaries and generate excitement. This oversized extravaganza throws down a playful gauntlet in the ongoing fashion battle for sartorial supremacy.
