Vaquera: Ready-To-Wear AW24

Vaquera had money on its mind this season. The clothes that designers Bryn Taubensee and Patric Dicaprio sent storming down the runway were skin-baring and sexy, mixed with elements of workwear, military toughness and banknote prints. There were track suits with poppers, bullet bras and drop-crotch denim jeans. Slouchy trousers were worn with money bedecked cummerbunds. Skirts were cut into swinging renditions of chaps and worn over thongs with garters. A duet of graphic, laser-printed button-ups with coordinating ties were particularly striking with one being spattered with dollar bills and the other portraying a decadent bouquet of red roses. 

Tops left little to the imagination; think Titty Twister T-shirts (where the fabric is twisted and gathered at the nipples) in black or shimmering leopard print and a bodysuit, rightfully named the Tits Out Leotard due to the spherical cut outs at the bust that blatantly exposed both breasts – Regina George-style… if she were into BDSM. 

Teeny tiny waistcoats and a clownish Mona Lisa Muscle Tee were worn with what the brand called ‘donut skirts’ – no, they weren’t dipped in powdered sugar (though one was dipped in sequins), but they were Vaquera’s take on hip-jutting panniers. 

Sporadic swaths of faux fur appeared in the shape of padded shrugs or incarnations of softened ‘fencing masks’ with fishnet mesh in place of the steel – uber-cool but best not to be used in an actual sword fight lest you lose an eye. 

Money may not have ever made a man happy, but this collection has certainly done it for us. It was punk, it was sex, it was fashun. Vaquera’s Money is what makes the fashion world go round.
