A woman after my own heart, Ukrainian designer Ewa Herzog has one philosophy: to create stunningly feminine high-fashion pieces in a fair and sustainable way. Sustainability for Herzog is a careful choice of fabrics which are from the Western European countries (mainly Italy and England), so countries with regulated working conditions. In production, she also manufactures in Berlin where Herzog utilizes seamstresses, from secondary labour market conditions.
Her ‘Touch of Nothing’ Spring Summer 2016 collection is a truly ethereal amalgamation of almost fairy tale like couture creations, fabricated from fluid silk and intricately translucent lace. Not forgetting her signature asymetrical cuts.
Like a second skin for the wearer, these light fabrics fall perfectly around the female form and its transparency gives it a seductive, flirtatious and elegant quality. The playful summer dresses exude a fresh, youthful freedom, while my favourite the two-piece suits, shorts and tailored trousers are cut to seduce the viewer and the wearer.
Her SS16 palette of whites, creams, blues , oranges and pale greens are fitting with the current trends and play on the different facets of the modern woman – playful, sophisticated, girly and ultimately feminine.
