Design Inspiration

Happy Sunday all! Sundays are usually really peaceful and quiet around here with easy meals and family movies. My favorite thing about sundays though is we always try and have a big family nap in the afternoon. Its the best!!
I've been waiting for a relaxed weekend day to share this amazing find I came across recently: this new Spring 2012 line from Ulyana Sergeenko! She really is from is really from another planet. I just discovered her genious these past few weeks and she designs some of the most beautiful clothes I have ever never seen in real life. Her stuff always looks like it belongs in a beautiful movie, set during war time in Germany or something. Don’t know why, but it just gives me that feeling. And I know that it's her spring collection, but I think the colors and sillowets work for summer and fall aswell!! Maybe even winter? :)
Anyways I adore so many things about this collection. So here it is, and make sure you’re sitting down when you look at it!

I did not know it was possible to love a designer as much as I love this woman! I got all absorbed in her stuff and started doing all kinds of crazy Googling, and not only is she an incredibly talented designer, Ulyana is also an amazing photographer! Her retro and feminine style is just so perfect for the vintage enthusiast in all of us. She really inspires me to get on my machine and work at making magic! I think I want to start a Ulyana fan club. Who’s with me? haha

Have a terrific day everyone!

  16. I'm joining your club!
    I totally adore her! And Miroslava and Vika and the others! I really can't single out any outfit because I love all of them. Looks like Anna Karenina meets 1940's pin-ups.
    This may sound like a cliche, but I'm Slavic as well, so Ulyana's world inspired by Russian fairy tales, folkloric flower prints everywhere, babushkas and ushankas, floral crowns, so somehow I grew up with this, for me it's not another world but an extension of the magical Slavic heritage.
    And it's very great to see her and other Russians designers sticked together to bring some breath of fresh air in the fashion.
