Fashion Week Diaries: Vivienne Tam Makes Digital Pretty, Serena Looks On In Awe

September 10, 2008 by Bryn

The Vivienne Tam show was thee place to be last night – that is if you enjoyed waiting in line for a show that started an hour late with what seemed like the entire population of Manhattan. Thank goodness for Glam, who so graciously added me to the list  – which still didn't solidify me a spot inside the coveted Promenade before the plastic was ripped off the runway. But like a patient little blogger, I bided my time in the standing room line, trendspotting. And what did I spot? Really big bags. Mostly because they kept hitting me from all angles, but that caused me to take notice of the trendy oversized totes women (and men) were carrying their Fashion Week necessities in. Two favorites I spied were a crocodile skin like below and Anya Hindmarch's I'm Not A Plastic Bag, being carried by Fern Mallis' unidentified companion – how retro and eco.

I finally managed to elbow and prod my way past the security man and clipboard PR ladies to make my way inside. However, with standing room already 3 lines deep, no one knew where to go, or where to stand. After getting chastised by a girl in headphones for absent-mindedly standing on her papers (why she left them on the stairs in the middle of a fashion stampede I'm not quite sure), a tiny miracle occurred. A tall man in black (and yes, headphones) whisked me to a vacant second row seat.

The show was full of bright oranges, dusty pinks, florals, the occasional pleather cropped jacket, and…. more handbags. But this time, it was clutches. And the most unique clutch of all was the peony digital clutch designed by Tam in collaboration with HP. Unless you had your eye out for this special edition notebook, you would assume it was just another bold clutch making its way down the catwalk – but it's so much more. A mini-laptop and fashion statement all in one, the HP Vivienne Tam Special Edition notebook will be available early next year.

You'll see from my amateur video footage (I like to think of it as edgy and  documentary-esque), the end of the show highlighted the number of models donning clutches– or are they laptops? Thanks to Tam, the line is now blurred. Trendspotting, bags, and computers aside, I'd also like to point out in the video how quickly the front row leaves the scene — I don't even think Vivienne had finished taking her bow.

And if you look closely, you'll see Serena before she gets swarmed by photographers. She was looking unusually demure in a flowy white frock. —  something we've noticed editors wearing earlier this week
