Viva Vena!!!

Vena Cava’s new line called Viva Vena is making its debut this season… but for now their showing us quite the promo for their collection, one that I very much love!

(Pls watch the video below)

"superior vena cava: large diameter, yet short, vein that carries deoxygenated blood from 
the upper half of the body to the heart's right atrium."

"posterior vena cava: large vein that carries de-oxygenated blood from 
the posterior half of the body into the right atrium of the heart."

The duo consists of two friends, Lisa Mayock & Sophie Buhai, both studied at Parsons & in 2003 right after graduating jumped on producing their 1st Vena Cava collection.

In Summer of 09 they had a collaboration with “The Great” Alexander Chang for Gap/CFDA.

During Fashion Week in NY the duo showed us how they were inspired by the 1980s Memphis design movement for their Vena Cava Spring 2011 presentation.

Inspiration: A movement led by Ettore Sottsass & an international group of young architects and designers that came together to form the Memphis Group.

A design collective which began in 1981, was known for their colorful & ironic pieces, manipulation of contrasting colors and textures. They produced designs that were not geared towards functionality but, rather, followed the punk aesthetic of the 1970’s.
