A collection that’s not too heavy on philosophy = good for the consumer. I remember myself craving for something really warm that doesn’t look like a cocoon during long Russian winters. It might have been just one of these dresses, like that on the second picture – half leather, half felted wool.
Finally something that totally accords with the stereotype I had about Ukraine: prints, ethnic ornaments, multicolor necklaces, almost no orange makeup.
These intricately detailed, hand-finished silk dresses and macrame pieces can be used to create a fierce or romantic look as shown, just please leave those flowery lace tights alone.
The focus of this collection is obviously not the color but detailing, the eccentricity of the latter being the compensation for the lack of the former. Belts that resemble a measuring tape, heavy origami pleats, applique… the measuring tape again – as a headpiece.
So, this is what the collection Svetlana Bevza showed in London looks like! Sleek and glamorous. However, Svetlana’s usual minimalistic approach is becoming more complex.
