Lviv, Ukraine – Spring/Summer 2014 sees Amina Vishnevskaya revisiting the elegance of the 1930’s. We see beautifully printed cocktail dresses and others for all occasions. Red and white are the colors that dominate the early color palette. Later darker tones of electric grey with dark black bottoms and cherry red details enter.
The shoulders have attention given to them but not with padding. It is rather created through their structure. The skirts and dresses are cut above the knees. We see them as singles dresses and clever two-piece ensembles.
Three-quarter sleeves and low, squared bust lines reveal the flesh. They add appeal to the bared armed and well revealed legs.
The collection is nothing evolutionary as it takes its style codes from the 1930s. However, it is nice to see them employed in this feminine collection that is friendly to a woman’s figure and without all the fuss and pretension seen in the collections of many other designers this season.
