In The Spotlight: VPL NYC

New York is abuzz about a new brand, VPL, short for visible panty line. Launched in 2003 by Vogue and Theory alum Victoria Bartlett, VPL began with a novel concept: underwear as outerwear. Since then, the line has blossomed into dresses, tops, accessories, bags, and shoes. Many of the cotton pieces look simple (but not American Apparel simple), and the designer effectively mixes tight and loose-fitting pieces on models, which showcases her unique style.

VPL is definitely breaking the high-waist look, which has been wiggling its way back into fashion.

The strappy, simple ballet-inspired footwear is delicious.

We're a big fan of this blossoming brand. Keep your eyes out for their next collection.
