On September 25, the LITKOVSKAYA brand presented the SS20 collection at Paris Fashion Week.
"Morning, day, evening and night as a whole life ... and then - again a new life, and again the morning, and again we must learn to greet the sun and to learn to walk again. Every point in our life, every moment is a null, a birth, a blank sheet. It remains to preserve and transcend into purity its path to Truth, ”Lily Litkovskaya comments.
LITKOVSKAYA's Spring Summer 2020 collection describes a day in life, seen as a series of snapshots, alighting on the salient moments. Morning, noon, dusk and night are embodied in silk slip and transparent organza dresses with twisted details, in deconstructed suits of wool and plastic-covered cotton, dramatic gowns and bold shaped leather pieces.
Expressing her inspiration through deconstruction and combining the contradictory designer Lilia Litkovskaya imagines a woman's life as a continuous spectrum in which only her truth carries over from one point to the next.
Shoulders are strong, outlined used traditional tailoring techniques, as a reminder that women today face a whole world, not just half-lives. Details derive from women's lingerie to emphasize the soft power of feminity. The textures are mixed, twisted and fringed showcasing the way we today value the handcraft and artisanal approach.
Integrating art into her collection from season to season, Lilia Litkovskaya continues her collaboration with Milan-based sculptor Tatiana Brodatch. Creating a necklace with two balancing pendants resembling the ancient figurines of men and women – the beginnings, the parts coinciding in each of us at the moment of birth.
Using a wide pallet from white and gold to red and navy blue, LITKOVSKAYA's Spring Summer 2020 collection expresses a feeling of endless possibilities in life that must be lived as if every moment was a fresh new day.
