Trending Tuesday: Ukrainian Folk Lore *Embroidery*

Style Watch

Hey Everyone! Can you believe that traditional Ukrainian garb has made it onto this years Summer fashion trends list? That’s right you heard me correctly (err read me I mean) Ukrainian folk lore is taking over this years summer style scene. Think long loose shift dresses with embroidery on light weight fabrics, and the accessories that accompany this trend include everything and anything that’s bold, along with loose blouses.

Pair this trendy look off with chandelier earrings, large hats, to shoes that match with the same embroidered details, like colours (reds, blues, and whites) that match the dress. You’ll notice that one of the pioneers of kickstarting this trend is designer Vita Kin- and the majority of these dresses in the post are by her. However on an unrelated note, A lot of this scream peasant girl to me…and reminds me of fields full of sunflowers. Too Cute!

In ways her work reminds me of Ulyana Sergeenko, and of Yulia Yanina’s,(her work ethic) + something else unidentifiable with other designers, making this designer distinct.
