The Ulyana Sergeenko Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection gets unveiled during the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week on July 2, 2013, bearing the name “Russian Gothic”, which already speaks for itself. Femininity, classiness and elegance were imprinted all over the stunning designs showcased, which represent a harmonious mixture between the Russian designer’s signature style of Victorian governess and Fifties cutie. This time, Ulyana Sergeenko looked to famous Russian folk stories for inspiration, creating a super-whimsical couture line, where drama was highlighted in every little detail, starting from the fab makeup of the models, who were wearing glitters under the eyes, resembling teardrops. Although they did seem to be crying, the fashion world is filled with joy and sparkle to have this stunning collection in its list now!
The Ulyana Sergeenko Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 show opened with an array of Ulyana-appropriate high-necked dresses with edgy transparent panel details. There you could see the grown-up Little Red Riding Hood, wearing a red velvet dress, the tunic of Rasputin, lots of refined hand embroidery details, tear-shaped laser cutouts, Vologda lace underlays, aristocratic fur and babushka hoods that are so hard not to be loved! An uber-luxurious gold gown and an innocent white dress closed the show, as if symbolizing a new life after the drama.
This is already the third couture line of Ulyana Sergeenko and it’s as smashing as the previous two! One instantly falls in love with the Russian beauty’s craftsmanship, which reinvents the aristocratic Russian style that got lost in the middle ages and collapsed with the Soviet Union. Seems like the Ulyana Sergeenko Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection revives the forgotten Russian woman’s impeccable look, giving a fairy-tale like approach to it and making it so Ulyana Sergeenko. If you are one of those hopeless fans of the Russian It girl’s personal style, you have the chance to borrow a piece of it from the Ulyana Sergeenko Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection and hold it dear to your heart!
