Lutsk Fashion Weekend was held 10 – 12 June. Two shows with vyhyvankas – by ukrainian brands Videi and Edelvika – occupied a prominent place in the shedule of the event.
On the wave of patriotism and the search for national identity vyshyvanka remains very fashionable in Ukraine. VIDEI proposed its own approach to vyshyvatka – to create the embroidery together with their customers.
EDELVIKA showed very harmonious ready-to-wear vyshyvankas for all family.
Yesterday very talented Ukrainian designer Tetiana Chorna has presented her new line of acsessoires “At the beginning was the body”. Different body parts (arms, ears and even collarbone) Tetiana formed from leather.
The show was conceptual: models in white clothes posed with detached faces and finally formed the picture of the couple, lying in embraces. It was the victory of body, it was art.
The collection “A Little Chaos” by Ukrainian designer Olga Navrotska was inspired by the novels of Jane Austen, the gardens of the Louvre, and a 2014 British period drama film directed by Alan Rickman.
The first working title of the collection was “The pride and prejudice”, and therefore the dresses and suits vere named like female characters of the novel. Elizabeth, Jane, Georgiana …
Last summer designer visited the gardens of the Louvre and it added her an inspiration. Later came the film “A Little Chaos” with Kate Winslet, which talked about the first architect woman, who has made “a little chaos” in rigor and the order of the Louvre gardens. Designer realized it was the perfect name for the collection, which has a 70th, 90th, velvet, flowers, willow, bird, winged unicorns and the sun with the months.
Removing the Navro’s campaign, Olga Navrotska wanted to add a bit of provocation in the romantic mood of the collection and acted out the story of Jack London “Little Lady of the Big House”. In general, NAVRO ss 2016 is a fantasy, designer’s associative array, which arose under different circumstances and inspired by classical literature and women’s histories.
I think, it’s very trendy of the spring-summer 2016, because the same romantism we can find in the Alexander McQeen’s and Gucci’s collections:
