Victoria Bartlett knows how to make a woman feel comfortable. Starting out as a stylist, Bartlett has contributed to some truly breathtaking fashion editorials in magazines like Italian Vogue and V Magazine. It’s her innate sense of style that helped her transition so smoothly into women’s apparel, mixing athletic detailing with strong modern silhouettes. The VPL signature is in bandage style lingerie and swimwear, which has earned Bartlett a following among women that appreciate the mending of fashion and function. Elastic bands, interlocking straps, and racer backs are all part of the VPL DNA, and the sporty touches couple seamlessly with two-tone knits, jersey dresses, and cocoon-shape coats. The sport-centered aesthetic is echoed in the store, designed to look like an old gym with vintage punching bags, a pummel horse, and gymnast’s rings. Form and function? What’s not to love?Show lessRead more
