St. Petersburg, Russia – Milla Berillo presented a short, but very well constructed collection at the St. Petersburg Fashion Week this season. Her new Spring/Summer 2017 fashion outing is a thoughtful body of work in which we see the designer bring together the disciplines of fashion and design with the concept of innovation and forward-thinking.
The short, above-the-knee dresses cling to the body while the trousers are cut amply large. Here in the battle of the proportions, we see comfort versus feminine sexiness. The element about this collection that this writer most appreciates is the construction of the pieces. In it, Milla Berillo has put in a great effort to create garments that may be converted in order to be worn differently. This versatility offers consumers the ability to purchase one look that offers the dual ability to be worn differently. This is achieved through the cleverly conceived inclusion of large loops, the slits, the long belts and the volumes.
