Who needs a runway show when you have Maggie Gyllenhaal to do the job? Opting to bypass the hustle and bustle of fashion week, Vena Cava’s Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock simply hosted a dinner and invited 12 friends and muses—the likes of Stephanie LaCava, Kate Young, Nora Zehetner, Tennessee Thomas, and Lily Kwong—to model their Spring collection.
The newest personality to strike a pose in their pieces is the ever-cool Maggie Gyllenhaal. “Maggie was our ideal woman to represent Vena Cava,” says Lisa. “She’s a movie star in the traditional sense, but also has the modern-day qualities we admire and adore in friends, collaborators, and accomplices.”
As for the notably 40s-inspired collection, Sophie and Lisa describe it as a return to their roots, with feminine, but not frilly, pieces, including elegant high-waist pants, halter-neck dresses, and details of clean-cut geometric prints.
