YANA CHERVINSKA S/S 2016 is a intimate story that designer tries to tell through the clothes. Finding inspiration in iconic novel «In Search of Lost Time» by Marcel Proust designer Yana Chervinska presents tender girl, who lost herself in endless waste of time. The main idea of the collection — inner transformations related to the tender age when everything changes fast and disappointment becomes the manifesto.
Collection is a story of a girl who was innocent and pure and then suddenly became tainted. She was a flower then turns into faded cheap bouquet. Designer starts from simple prints of young girls’ faces by Ukrainian artist Alina Zamanova and ends with complex volumetric decor in a form of knitted flowers. Remembering her youth, she gently reminds us about nostalgia for the innocence which appears in the form of ironic prints from old knitting magazines. The color palette of the collection is also have evolving nature. Naive sky blue and emerald green suddenly turns into splashy fuchsia and then into vapid black and white.
Using traditional for the label knitwear Yana Chervinska combines it with gentle silk and cotton, developing new ideas with denim and raincoat fabric.
YANA CHERVINSKA S/S 2016 is about a flower which lost it’s petals. It is about a melancholic girl who feels despair. She is a flower, but not alive anymore. That is why name of the collection came naturally, this is a story about «Shadow of the girl in blossom».
