I am back, just in time to start reviewing some of the greatest collection what New York (and later on London, Milan and Paris) has to offer. Spring/Summer Ready-To-Wear fashion month has just started, yay. 🙂 Excited even if it’s ‘just’ spring because in real life (at this part of the globe), you know, autumn just has arrived.
“I was thinking about boundaries and what we can do to collapse them in this business,” said Ulla Johnson backstage when was asked about the inspiration of her latest collection. Not that it’s not kind of clear, I mean, just look at those clothes. It has a strong tribal, rustic effect running all over in a way which makes everything modern and desirable.
According to Vogue, she had the Herero tribe of Namibia, and the quilters of Gee’s Bend, an isolated African-American community in Alabama, in mind while creating, without letting anything go which makes her, well, Ulla Johnson. Great idea and workmanship, not to mention the incorporated fabric scraps from her previous collections, a little but necessary nod to sustainability.
What do you think?
