Ukrainian Fashion Week: Artemklimchuk, ELENAREVA
The location for displaying the new collection of Artemklimchuk was a huge hall in the Arsenal. The dimness, the spinning discobole created the atmosphere of the school graduation.
For female images Artemklimchuk used strict red dresses, decorated with transparent inserts on the shoulders. Brilliant white and beige bustier dresses add images of elegance. Also as decorations were used rhinestones decorated with transparent trousers, and black bugles settled in the twilight.
The designer says that his new collection tells about emotionsю. About the first love, about the first real kiss, about the first passion. She will also talk about how the first rays of the rising sun reflect in the pupils and want to live breathing in full breast.
In the new collection, the brand ELENAREVA, as the main source for inspiration, used the works of Sandro Botticelli and the picture of Peter Weir “Picnic at the Hanging Rock”.
“In the new season, we turned to the theme of mystical femininity. The starting point of the study was the work of Botticelli “The Birth of Venus” – an ode to the mysterious side of the female nature, seductive and innocent at the same time. The mysterious and fantastically beautiful film of Peter Weir inspired us to rethink the fashion of the early twentieth century, we tried to transfer the characteristic elements of the clothes of that time into the modern context, “- says about the collection of Elena Reva.
Collection Spring / Summer 2018 was Elena Reva devoted to the theme of mystical femininity. So on the podium it was possible to see flying dresses of medium length made of silk and chiffon, pure color of white and peach cream, corsets, flounces and silk contrasting tapes.
