Ulla Johnson presented Spring Summer 2018 collections during New York Fashion Week. Featuring the starched organza, sheer volumes, billowing skirts, and exaggerated puffed up sleeves, the collection is a dialogue around transparency.
The investigation of openness continues with fabric manipulation and splicing: cotton eyelet is patch worked and shot through with lace; blown up netting is embroidered and paneled with weighty cottons; tissue thin jacquard is scattered with an abstracted floral; delicate hand crochet is worked into contrasting areas of density and finished with elaborate ruffles. Whisper-light silk tulle is ruched into gathered bodices and extended into floating skirts. The lyrical lightness is set against structure as seen in layered denims that crisscross and conform to the body, while creating new shapes in a graphic palate of optical white, jet black, and pine green. Suede is draped like silk into asymmetrical dresses, laced back tops, and louche trousers. A serene foundation of whites and pale yellows is blown up with a shock of bright – chartreuse, bubblegum pink, bright purple, and acid green serve to disrupt the status quo. – from Ulla Johnson
