Ulyana Sergeenko: Autumn/Winter 2013/2014

I just loved Ulyana Sergeenko's collection for autumn/winter 2013/2014. The women is a genious.

 I would go so far as to say that no one is really quite her. In what sense? Well, in the sense that she manages to incorporate so many various elements into her style and still have a signature finished look to her collections.

Obviously, she is deeply rooted in the Russian tradition and I really like how she can take something from folklore and make it fresh and just drop dead gorgeous. At the same time, she admits to beings inspired by the retro and vintage looks and says she buys most of her vintage clothes (30,40, 50, 60ties) in the States.

I mean, US vintage style + Russian folklore?! How is that ever going to work? But it does. It really does and if for nothing else that is enough to make her endlessly fascinating. It is a brave thing to do something like that. Most people would probably have said it is impossible. I guess she proved them wrong.

Lady with a very unique style. That is how I would sum her up. As a fashion icon, she is the embodiment of style...and it seems to me that she does project her personal style onto the catwalk in the perfect way.

Enough said. Let's take a look at some pieces from her new collection.


For most part she has gone for basic colours: red, grey, black and white but she has made them her own and really made them a part of her vision.


Grey has never looked better. She really knows how to make the most of this colour.


What gorgeous material! All the black pieces look so glam and shiny... there is just something very luxurious about them.


Her white pieces remind me of Swam lake....or of Snow white. Anyhow, there is something very dream like (and fairy tale like) in her white pieces, don't you think?


Bloody red...again I cannot help thinking about fairy tales. Cinderella meats pin up?

One thing she is also famous for is the usage of fur in her creations. Whatever you might think of it, probably we can agree that from the aesthetic perspective these pieces are beautiful. (I can understand why some may criticize her for it, but in a country with such cold climate isn't it kind of necessary?)

Thank you for reading and do tell me what you think of this collection.

    1. ma da...nekako se ne mogu zamisliti u krznu, ali opet mi je nekako licemjerno osuđivati ljude zato što nose krzno pogotovo tamo gdje za tim postoji potreba.

  5. Wow, cool!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
