As a forward-thinking label, this season’s Vanessa G collection looks to the past, and deep into the earth, to elevate it to new heights. Inspired by her personal involvement in the mining sector, the new Vanessa G collection combines unique prints with vintage designs, to illustrate the fascinating journey of minerals from raw materials to valuable products. Intrigued, not just by the raw materials themselves but by the catalysts that aid their transformation, the designer focuses on the traditional tools, work force and processes used to extract them from the earth ’s crust. These original designs, elegant and edgy, tell the life story of the designer and the intricacies of a business that have moulded her into the respected entrepreneur she is today.

From Discovery to Creation

Emulating the beauty of minerals from their raw form to the final product, the designs similarly reveal unpolished thoughts into breathtaking pieces of art. Discovery to Creation depicts the earth’s precious materials and their influence on their geographic nature. Incorporating timeless and versatile silhouettes that enhance comfort and elegance, these were influenced by the mining attire of that era. The silhouettes are complemented by unique prints and colours to create a picturesque expression that encompasses this season. The designer incorporated precious stones form part of the embellishments that add to the garments both visually and physically.

Rare Earth

Intrigued by the relationship between mining and nature, this range uses detailed designs to bring Vanessa G’s principle of “Art’Outure” to life. Flora and fauna play a prominent role in depicting the value of raw materials and their ability to enhance the beauty of a sector in a kaleidoscope of colours.

Chain Reaction

Utilising chains in both their rustic and polished forms is symbolic of the processes and links in the mining sector used to extrapolate these precious metals and stones from the earth. The designer’s incorporation of bright colours are to draw the beauty and harmony into the consciousness of the customer from a sector that is often considered unglamorous.
