When foreign designers participate in Ukrainian fashion weeks, it’s always interesting, because even if we do not talk about big names, designers of good level usually bring with them the environment and the context in which they constantly rotate. These fresh “infusions”, in my opinion, are very useful for the development of the Ukrainian spectator and Ukrainian fashion in general.
On the first day of the Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Days, such an “infusion” was the display of Lamberto Petri.
Among the public in the ranks the impression was ambiguous. Someone frowned in displeasure. Because such a free form of clothing does not often take root in the post-Soviet space, where people like to have everything “slippery” and “smartly”. (in the end, this affects the perception of even people revolving in the fashion world … what can we say about a simple buyer). Someone on the contrary, admiringly froze with delight at each new exit.
I carefully looked at the images and looked for them in their reflection of their moods, because so many ideas were in tune with what I now feel and expect from clothes.
What in the end can I say about the Lambrto Petri SS 2013 collection? This is a very good quality multi-layer casualas with elements of a boho. Very comfortable things that create the feeling that your body inside these things lives a separate life, only occasionally coming into contact with the fabric of the dress or top.
In models with one shortened trouser, for some reason, I was more reminded of the unforgettable Mironov with his failure on the podium. “Pants turn … into elegant shorts.” Controversial decisions. It does not spoil the collection very much, but informs the viewer that sometimes the designer is overly keen on the creative idea, without taking into account how this idea will look and be used in reality.
Against the background of general relaxation – tuxedos and their variations looked even more solemn than usual.
In general, the collection is a good solution for those who like to look relaxed in everyday life, but at the same time to use things with complex details and interesting cuts. This collection that the concept of “convenient” is not only about the combination of “jeans plus T-shirt”.
