We recently launched the Cloud & Victory Fall/Winter 2015 collection, which features a ‘Mean Girls’ twist on ballet this season – something that was probably fairly inevitable, given my inability to divorce C&V from ballet humour and pop-culture references.
Classic one-liners from the movie starring Lindsey Lohan and Tina Fey have been given a ballet spin, from ‘Personally Victimised By Rond De Jambes’ to the infamous’On Wednesdays We Wear Pink’ line set against a picture of vintage ballerinas in pink tutus; all emblazoned on flowy crop tops, curved hem tanks and comfy sweaters made of soft silken tencel and super comfy fair-trade cotton.
Included in this collection are also pieces that celebrate the beautiful classicism of ballet, from a Uliana Lopatkina-inspired Swan Lake organic cotton top to bespoke, hand-sewn Romantic tutu-inspired Italian tulle skirts and unique, digitally-printed ballet leotards and leggings. The lookbook features Kremlin Ballet principal, the lovely Joy Womack, whom we have had the pleasure of collaborating with numerous times. I hope ballet-lovers, regardless of their familiarity with Mean Girls, will find Cloud & Victory Fall/Winter 2015 to be so very fetch. (Yes, we’re still trying to make fetch happen).
