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...
