Voyeur By Vex was the first designer brand to show at Style Chicago‘s Art of Fashion runway on October 17, 2014. The sister brand of Vex clothing, Voyeur By Vex  is a Chicago staple created byLaura Petrielli-Pulice that artfully combines latex with more traditional fabrics. As the opener of the show the brand had a lot to live up to. Luckily, their interpretation of SS15 fashion is strong and sexy, like a modern warrior woman, and it managed to set a promising tone for the evening.

From long flowy asymmetrical hem dresses, pencil skirts, jagged tunics, short skirts and bralettes, Voyeur By Vex SS15 offers a wide range of silhouettes and wardrobe options. While it may be typical of spring clothing to be bursting with color, Voyeur By Vex SS15 has a primarily neutral color palette of brown, cream, navy, black and olive. However, despite their mute palette, Voyeur By Vex manages to keep each piece interesting with metallic details and unexpected textures, making the collection multi-dimensional and a stand out amongst the traditional sea of spring florals and neons. Reminiscent of leather, the manipulation of latex for this collection is especially impressive and complements the comfort and care free attitude of the easy-going fabrics paired with it.

One of the most interesting elements of the collection is how Voyeur By Vex takes advantage of the cut out trend and plays around with interesting backs and bodices. From bare backs, racer backs, criss-cross straps and more, these details add an element of interest to the collection. Belts and straps embellished with large gold grommets are also a crucial detail for many of the looks and make the collection even more cohesive.
