Creating NADIA YURKIV SS18 collection, the designer is inspired by the distant past and dreams of a distant future, looking for humanity in the infinite universe. She is also fascinated by the path she has already come and anticipates an incredible future adventure with a series of challenges: the creation of a artificial general intelligence, biotechnology, and cyborgization, the extension of life through genetic engineering, the colonization of Mars, the journey to other solar systems.
The motive of Kubrick’s Space Odyssey becomes the driving force. Its mysticism and grandeur provoke the creation of a collection as its own interpretation of the undeclared on the tape and an attempt to answer the question posed to the viewer. The collection focuses on revealing images of space travelers of the near future. The designer uses the brand-specific methods of balancing between complicated asymmetric cut and restraint, and also boldly experimenting, combining classics and sports. There are elastics in a classic suit, buttons, and grommets, elastic stripes in dresses and overalls, bulky sleeves in the collection. And the print, inspired by Martian landscapes, complements the image.
The collection offers classic jackets and trousers, overalls, blouses, dresses, sundresses, skirts and outerwear - bombers and bright raincoats with hoods resembling helmets of a spacesuit. Also, massive bags and futuristic accessories are presented.
Black and gray, with the addition of orange, yellow, blue-green dominate in color palette.
