Yulia Yanina’s SS 2016 Ballet Inspired Collection

Cementing the link between Russia and France’s history of an age old art form, Yanina’s Spring Summer 2016 collection brings history and culture together through ballet. Yanina’s inspirations shine through in her latest haute couture collection that uses embroidery, velvets, feathers, and tulle amid dresses that appear weightless, and conceal in a tasteful way.

An intimate look at the inspiration board of Yulia Yanina’s SS 2016 creations would show images of Mikhail Vrubel’s Swan princess. (The swan princess was the muse behind the pearl, grey dress in the very last image). There would be impressionist paintings, french novels, and literature in both Russian and French. While photos of Russia’s famed ballerinas Anna Pavlova, and Ida Rubenstien would be displayed as the influence behind the hat style in the collection (they used to wear hats of a similar fashion). Lastly Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes would be on the board to further solidify the link between Russia and France in this romantic, and dreamlike collection.

Perhaps the image that mostly inspired me while I was creating the collection was “The Swan Princess” by Mikhail Vrubel. Especially it affected the final “wedding” image: elegant pearl- grey fabric and a silver veil, a cloud of shades and reminiscent of wings embroidery – all that was inspired by the mysterious, mesmerizing image of The Swan Princess.“- Yulia Yanina

    • Awwh,
      Even if tulle has made you cry, I also hope it made you feel proud of yourself that you had hands on experience, and know what it’s like to work with. I once read that Yulia will only work with clients she gets a certain feeling from… she seems intriguing as a designer.
