In about an hour, Vena Cava's sample sale will kick off in Soho. We'll have a full report on the goods, of course, but in the meantime, how about a Vena appetizer? Opening Ceremony stopped by the label's showroom yesterday for a look at Viva Vena, an as-yet-unreleased line of lower-priced basics (due out this fall). Being Opening Ceremony employees, they were already wearing outfits that perfectly coordinated with the collection's tees, coats, and dresses, so they staged a photo shoot, above.
The tee, coat, and print dress all look pretty promising, although exactly how promising should depend on pricing—everything in the collection costs under $200, but that's a vague price range when it comes to embellished sweatshirt tops. As for the rest of the looks, we liked our LA sister site's reaction: "We don't care if it is Vena Cava; no net shirts!"
