Ulyana Sergeenko Couture AW1415

The Ulyana Sergeenko Couture Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show, which featured an homage to Tamara de Lempicka’s « The Swans  » painting in the scenography, made reference to Ukraine’s past, at the beginning of the 20st century, and Ukraine’s current political conflicts.

Other Ukraine–inspired collections : Gareth Pugh Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (this collection was influenced by Ukraine’s warrior women of the Asgarda tribe), Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Autumn/Winter 2005-2006 (this show paid tribute to agrarian Ukraine), John Galliano Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 (partly), Prabal Gurung Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (Ukraine’s Asgarda tribe inspired the powerful pieces of this collection).

Ulyana Sergeenko Couture SS14

The Ulyana Sergeenko Couture Spring/Summer 2014 Show was influenced by an imaginary train journey, which ended in a boudoir, to various destinations such as Kazakhstan.

Other Kazakhstan-inspired items : Peter Jensen Spring/Summer 2012 (the twinset in this collection was based on a carpet from a hotel in Kazakhstan), Pollini by Rifat Ozbek Autumn/Winter 2005-2006 (for this show, Philip Treacy created headpieces that were inspired by Kazakhstan tribesmen’s hats).

Gone with the Wind

Ulyana Sergeenko Couture SS13























Victor Fleming’s « Gone with the Wind » was one of the 3 references of the Ulyana Sergeenko Couture Spring/Summer 2013 Show, which celebrated America.

One « Gone with the Wind »-inspired outfit : Antoni & Alison Spring/Summer 2010 (one of the dresses of this collection, presented like a casting, was Antoni & Alison’s version of Scarlett O’Hara red gown, if they had been asked to design it).
