TRYP, a new collection by Nadiia in collaboration with Bevza
Wednesday, 16 September 2020
A new collection of ceramics and wearable objects by Nadiia takes inspiration from Ukraine’s prehistoric heritage and harnesses its powerful energy for our uncertain times.
Based on extensive research into Cucuteni–Trypillia culture, ceramic figures, jewellery and homeware combine rough texture and ancient symbolism to reimagine the meaning of objects in our day-to-day life. The collection, titled TRYP, was created by Nadiia in 2020 for Kyiv-based fashion brand BEVZA.
For the visual campaign, Bevza and Shapoval traveled around small Ukrainian villages with Kyiv-based photographer Stephan Lisowsky and documented locals who live in the same places which the ancient people used to populate.
