Haute Couture SS13: Ulyana Sergeenko's American inspiration ♥ Висша Мода пролет/лято 2013: Американското вдъхновение на Уляна Сергеенко

Fashion is about creating a new self every day, about drawing a picture, about dreaming and most of all fashion is about telling a story. The story of your life, or a short moment that changed it, a feeling, a thought. And while some might say Ulyana Sergeenko's second couture collection belongs in Hollywood and not the runways in Paris, I can argue. What is fashion all about if not theater? 

After exploring her Russian roots in the Fall 2012 Couture collection Ulyana Sergeenko turned her head to the US to create a new, unapolagetically theatrical show under the tunes from The Wizard of Oz, Rocky and even Django Unchained. "Gone With the Wind, the Headless Horseman, Huck Finn—it's our American collection," Ulyana said before the runway. 

The designer might have found her inspiration on a different continent but she definitely preserved her signature feminine shapes. Cinched waists, flaring skirts, corsets, and velvet onsies, even a self-indulgent red cape and of course sky-high heels. Lets not forget about the small details that take a dress from beautiful to brilliant and are what makes Haute Couture so special - porcelain buttons nipping the back of the gowns, delicate crocheted embroideries inserted into gorgeous silk blouses. 

This is what fashion is all about, this is why I love it so much!
Модата ни помага да създадем новата си същност всеки ден, да нарисуваме картина, да мечтаем и най-вече да разкажем история. Историята за живота си или за кратък момент, който го е променил, за чувство или мисъл. Някои може да кажат, че втората котюр колекция на Уляна Сергеенко принадлежи на Холивуд, а не на подиума в Париж, но аз ще попитам какво е модата ако не театър?

След като изследва руските си корени в първата си котюр колекция за есен 2012 Уляна Сергеенко обърна поглед към щатите, за да създаде ново, театрално шоу под звуците на мелодии от Магьосникът от Оз, Роки и Джанго без окови. "Отнесени от Вихъра, Конника без глава, Хък Фин - това е американската ни колекция," каза Уляна преди ревюто.

Сергеенко може да е намерила вдъхновението си на друг континент, но определено е запазила типичните за работата си женствени форми. Малки кръстове, клоширани поли, кадифени гащеризони, дори разточително червено наметало и разбира се токове, високи до небето. Да не забравяме и малките детайли, които правят красивите дрехи брилянтни и висшата мода толкова специална - порцеланови копчета на гърба на роклите, деликатни дантели апликирани върху прелестни копринени блузи.

Това е мода, затова я обичам толкова много!
