Violette: "Fangs of New York" Video Lookbook
A couple of weeks ago on my other home on the interwebs, M.I.S.S, I penned a gushing little ditty about director and designer Vashtie Kola, touching briefly on her uber successful fashion line, Violette. Cut to early August and Va$htie is back at it, dropping the video lookbook for the line's Summer 09 collection (I guess better late than never right?). Cunningly dubbed Fangs of New York, the collection of T's and tanks is chock full of simple designs emblazoned with the brand's signature "V"'s. Horizontally, vertically and chopped and screwed, Violette's revolutionized the logo T, taking it from bland to bold. Check out the video lookbook below-- great photography by 13th Witness, styling by Elle Clay, and editing/video work by the Queen B Miss Va$htie herself!
