Discover Ulla Johnson‘s Fall Winter 2019.20 collection presented on February 7, 2019 during New York Fashion Week. Offering a wildly colorful and opulent celebration of pattern and form, the collection is telling a story of emboldened and poetic femininity.
Myriad influences are brought into harmonious dialogue. Tribal motifs and color juxtapositions are seen in vividly graphic intarsia and layered stripes and patterns. Hand loomed fabrics developed with Indian weavers are lavishly embroidered with cascading sequins and trimmed in a delicate hand crochet that evokes Johnson’s Eastern European heritage. Diaphanous silks and crisp poplins are printed with hand drawn batiks featuring climbing florals and tropical birds, seen in eye popping colors contrasted with earth tones of slate blue, umber, cork, alabaster, and kohl. With an irreverent touch, Johnson explores and charts new territories – animal patterns are cast in ikat denim and knitted into acid bright jacquards. An abstracted woven floral is spotted with lurex and seen in reversible puffers and a rich fuchsia and chartreuse cloqué, formed into sculptural frocks and exaggerated shoulders. Yarns receive lavish attention, as delicate metallic lace is richly embroidered with cream and avocado wool and cast in voluminous sleeves and floor skimming gowns. A custom silk velvet devore, woven with shimmering metallics, is gathered into delicate necklines, draped sleeves, and languid disco inspired frocks. A brilliantly gilded floral in blown up scale is screened onto black and sunflower taffeta featuring tiered volumes, peaked shoulders, and abbreviated lengths. – from Ulla Johnson
