From Russia with Love

Russian fashion designer and photographer, Ulyana Sergeenko, is without a doubt one of the most stylish women on the planet. Endlessly papped by street style photographers across the globe it seems the webosphere cannot get enough of Ulyana’s retro 40’s look right now.

Unsurprisingly Ulyana’s latest Autumn/Winter look book is simply stunning. Perhaps even less surprising is that she's delivered sharp retro and traditional silhouettes in sophisticated materials. With conservative sleeve lengths and long hemlines these outfits could have looked dull or dated. But no! Ulyana is a magician and added details and accessories, such as a transparent apron, towering red shoes and pretty frills, that add a youthful touch whilst the beautiful cut and striking yet muted colours make these outfits totally modern. There's also something a little bit victorian or Russian fairytale about the collars, headscarfs and full skirts. 

Think Greta Garbo meets Anna Karenina meets Zooey Deschanel and you're be halfway there.This is fun dressing up with a serious edge for those wanting hard-core nostalgia with a modern twist. Who doesn't want that this Winter?
