Here is the quick review of AW16/17 collections- best of UFW.
The designer stayed consistent in her concept of style: minimalistic, aristocratic, and simple. At the same time her FW 16/17 collection roused by the asymmetric cut, oversized shoulders, knitted suits, elegant and flowing dresses and blurred 'concrete wall' prints. No doubt, the snow-white outfit eclipses glorious bright colors and gives a chance to emphasize and draw the attention to perfection and sexuality of woman’s forms. The mix of fabrics gives the design a very stylish look – light and flowing with solid corset. By viewing the collection, you get the feeling of charismatic, wise, harmonious and strong women – this being the target for the designer, which was achieved through elegant simplicity of using complex cuts and design. Note, the brand is popular among world fashionistas because of this special feature.
Minimalism as a trend holds its positions, however Dzhus collection adds novel and extravagant forms. New silhouettes and fabric leave us in amusement and grasp - remind of historic costumes and touch upon a genetic memory, recalling something warm and significant. This collection is full of intriguing tendencies and adventurous solutions. The new style that incorporates advanced elements suggest us to treat the clothes more ingeniously and daring – meeting the demand of the modern world. The designer persuades us to listen to the inner voice and natural eccentricity, to abandon trivial combinations and to create our own fresh and sometimes brutal style. The ashy-gray color, sharp forms and quality – the signature of AW 16-17 season by DZHUS.
The key message from THEO is an incredible desire to make a strong statement to the world about him through all the sources he is in possession of. The brand is a wild energy of mind and spirit; an intellect; a knowledge in other fields related to beauty; an experience gained through victories and failures and absolute belief and confidence of propriety of his experiments.The ultimate aim of this eccentric artist is to release his inner spiritual essence that will prove itself by creating genial product.You might agree, Dekan is a personality that provokes while at the same time excites and intrigues. It is hard to analyze such masterpiece, nevertheless, one must admit that THEO will reach high peaks in the world of fashion.
As we head toward fall-winter season, what can be more pragmatic then the black-white contrast? After the runway, it is evident that black is a favorite in Olena DATS current collection. The choice of color draws out attention to the elegancy of the style, delicacy of the lines and forms, distinction in cut, sweetness of volants, exclusive femininity and sexuality. In the long run, the collection creates a feeling of a romantic nostalgia for evening gowns. The dress pieces are leaders of the collection as you can choose one for many occasion – from social night outs or party to going to a theater or gathering with friends. The chosen fabric is extremely light - its flowing and slightly lucent feature creates comfort that would make you dance. Daring accessories finish the chic dressing, builds the look of a real lady, inimitable while modern and trendy.
The celebration of colors, forms, flowing silks and a parade of finery - collection of Irina Dil that conquers your soul, delights your eye and raises irresistible temptation of “must-have”. The collection draws attention as a piece of modern art. Dil, as a true artist, transforms her vision from pure, simple and colorless snips of silk into elegant elements of dressing. Such element created an overall sense of magic and spiritual mystique of the brand’s creations. The embroidery, lace, fur, ornamental and jewelry furnish enriched the dressing with distinctive accent. Irina Dil collection differs by its intellectual spirit, its appeal to the triumph of colors and forms of national dressing that was lost in past, giving us a hope that a talent of the designer will revive a charm of olden times and aristocratic trend of clothing.
