The “Cossack Baroque” collection is the result of a study of the clothes of a Cossack officer, which was widespread in the Ukrainian lands in the 17th-18th centuries, in the author’s interpretation.Dressing gowns and kuntushas are, in fact, outerwear that can be served in the form of a jacket or coat. Embroidered shirts are offered both classic and stylized. All models feature a modern design and fit, as well as elements such as today’s fashionable matching clasp and patch pocket. This approach to design and modern materials have made these clothes relevant today, which is confirmed by the popularity of these models, especially among women.
Collection “Eastern Podillya” – constructively the collection was created taking into account the peculiarities of the cut of traditional Hutsul outerwear. We chose the embroidery of the Eastern Podillya as a source of inspiration, in particular ornamental elements of wedding towels. This embroidery is unique, colorful and multifaceted. After stylizing the embroidery, we transferred the symbolism of the towel to the clothes to give it a second life. Three-dimensional embroidered ornaments come to life on woolen fabrics – talismans, each of which has a strong protective value aimed at protecting and developing women in general. Simplified the color scheme and in some products transformed the shape of the ornament. Each product is made in a single copy, made of natural materials and decorated with hand embroidery. Also as decorative elements, open seams were used, which visually model the figure. Fabrics: natural woolen coat fabrics, printed woolen costume fabrics, woolen jacquards and tweeds. Blouses and shirts are made of silk and viscose lawn. A collection of unique belts together with Kyiv blacksmiths was also developed for the collection “Eastern Podillya”.Each buckle and belt are designed in a single copy and made by hand.
The mini-collection of dresses “Tree of Life” is based on the features of embroidery of Kyiv and Poltava regions. The color scheme has been changed, which gives a new breath to the seemingly familiar reading of ornaments. The stylized ornament developed in our embroidery laboratory clearly shows the all-Ukrainian tradition of towel embroidery – “Tree of Life”, which symbolizes the structure of the universe. The cut of all dresses is concise, but at the same time elegant and comfortable. Dresses resemble women’s shirts, which were the main component of the women’s system of Kyiv and Ukraine in general. Dresses can be ordered in individual sizes and in any color.
The “Flower” collection is inspired by spring blooms and the diversity of Ukrainian nature. All items are made in a single copy exclusively from natural fabrics. Decorated with hand embroidery. Stem stitching and floral ornaments add uniqueness and sophistication to each model.
The children’s collection uses ornamental compositions based on traditional towels from the central regions of Ukraine. The technique is traditional (towel seams). A separate area of work is the creation of embroideries. This national dress is an integral part of the wardrobe of a modern Ukrainian. Our masters can design and decorate an exclusive embroidered shirt with ornaments and cut for each client.
The collection of embroidered shirts includes both classic and stylized models – our personal development, which differs in modern design and fit, as well as such elements as today’s fashionable matching clasp and patch pocket with embroidery. Each ornament and its elements are designed by our embroidery designers and have a historical basis. There are separate embroidered shirts with hand embroidery designed in one copy just for the client and his preferences.
