FW 2017-18


Haute Couture Paris FW 2017-18, Ulyana Sergeenko

Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko devotes a collection to the timeless appeal of dark ladies, mysterious women with murky and unknown past, able to seduce at first glance.

Black total looks are the key to understand this haute couture fall/winter 2017-18 collection in which the fashion designer, in an atmosphere between the 1940s and 1950s, after World War II, imagines her women walk through the crowd, dressed in fine suits, maxi coats and hats to hide her face and defend their secret identity.

Longuette skirt, waisted jacket, refinet and comfy coats, available also in grey and blue navy, while at the parties where the mysterious lady is a guest with a fake name Ulyana Sergeenko imagine this woman capable of daring long dress with corset with sweetheart neckline and fur stole or change totally color, no more black, to seem more innocent. Green light, then for intriguing looks in pastel yellow, pink and even white, with berets and caps characterized by a vintage appeal, while dresses enhance her shapes.

Feminine, sensual, dangerous: for  Ulyana Sergeenko each mysterious woman has a story to tell. That is true or not doesn't matter. Certainly, told by this femme fatale will be more than interesting...

SS 2017


Haute Couture Paris SS 2017, Ulyana Sergeenko

La giovane couturier Ulyana Sergeenko, bellissima e dotata di una volontà ferrea che l’ha portata in pochi anni dal ruolo di socialite a quello di creatrice di moda, torna a Parigi con una collezione haute couture spring/summer 2017 in cui il gotico-russo fa un tuffo nell'avantgarde e nella sperimentazione per dare al mondo un'immagine di sé del tutto rinnovata e contemporanea.

Le babushke russe, con i loro abiti dai volumi importanti e i capispalla magistralmente costruiti, sono le protagoniste di questa collezione iconica e vivace che permette alla couturier di omaggiare la sua terra mostrando al mondo quanto si è evoluta ed è cambiata in questi anni.

I suoi abiti sembrano voler proprio raccontare la storia di questa evoluzione e, partendo dalla tradizione, spaziare poi nel mondo occidentale, il che non significa rinnegare o perdere i propri connotati stilistici che tanto piacciono in Russia alle sue ricche clienti, quanto piuttosto pescare a piene mani da un'altra tradizione in modo da arricchire la propria e renderla così più fresca, innovativa e accattivante. La Grande Madre Russia, quindi, rivive in tutto il suo splendore, ma con una nuova veste che piacerà anche alle sempre più numerosi clienti occidentali di una stilista che ama le donne e vuole renderle bellissime con i suoi abiti che posseggono un'allure quasi aristocratica.


Mood: Business woman e femminilità da fiaba
Lunghezze: abiti e gonne al ginocchio; abiti lunghi da sera con strascico
Ampiezze: volumi comfy
Colori: nero, marrone, rosa cipria, blue zaffiro, oro, verde, rosso
Tessuti: taffettas, raso, seta, organza, pizzo, plumage
