WOMEN’s Collection 3 – SPRING SUMMER 2018
Following on from the Women’s capsule pre-collection launched in June 2017, DELADA is presenting its main Women’s Collection 3 for Spring Summer 2018.
The combination of feminine romanticism, masculinity and unisex styling elements have now become very recognizable and strong signatures of the brand, and are reflected and reinforced with this latest collection as well.
Featuring romantic and feminine silk dresses, floral floating chiffons and floral cotton, this collection is full of romantic nostalgia and a reminder of the peaceful and romantic life back in Soviet Russia. Ruffled floral dresses with large transparent pockets and floral printed aprons which were a part of any household in Soviet Union bring a warm romantic and very feminine look to the new collection. While DELADA’s deconstructed men’s collections offered a new level of intrigue and complexity, the women’s styles are effortless with elements of simplicity and serenity. The fabrics are very light and breezy - perfect for a hot summer’s day or night.
But when things are getting a bit diaphanous, the designer infuses these romantic dresses with masculinity through styling to reflect the complex women’s role during Soviet times. The floral dresses are teamed up with military shirts and boyfriend’s blazers, oversize unisex coats and signature trousers under the aprons.
This collection is further exploring the memories of the Soviet Union times and the strong role of Russian women as a role model for the betterment of Soviet Russia
