si i've had rather a quiet day today, i've spent the day drawing and reading so it's been verrrrrrrry relaxing!
anyway i have some groovy stuff to share with you all today, in a way, carrying on from my Russian Doll/Matryoshka post the other day, i've another taste of Russia to show you
so today it's all about Russian fashion designer Ulyana Sergeenko
her debut ready-to-wear collection, which she describes as “illustration of Soviet Vogue 1950s” is chock full of gorgeously feminine pieces full of delicate details. i only discovered her stuff recently but one look at an Ulyana Sergeenko dress and i knew i'd have to see more!
the clothes themselves are to die for but it's the styling of the photographs that also appeals i think, all that retro hair and make-up combined with the bare floors and vintage wallpaper, the overall effect is absolutely stunning and the entire collection definitely makes Ulyana Sergeenko a designer to keep an eye on!
everything from the accessories and materials to the muted colours and patterns just gives the whole collection this dainty softness that i just love. the outfits look so classic and girly yet warm enough to withstand a day out shopping in December/January . not that you'd expect anything less of a perfectly functional yet gorgeous winter collection from a Russian Designer, but so many A/W collections nowadays are full of things i wouldn't dare wear in the summer let alone the depths of coldest winter!
the clothes and models all look exquisite in the photos so i hope you enjoy looking through them as much as i did. it's not just beautiful flowy dresses though, keep scrolling to check out some of my favourite outfits from the collection...
see... i told you it was all divine! every outfit is absolutely gorgeous making up a fantastic A/W collection! i can't wait to see what she comes up with for S/S 2012
i am so in love with her designs! i wish i could dress like that for Winter...
