Discover Ulyana Sergeenko‘s Spring Summer 2020 Couture collection inspired by What a Way to Go! (1964) movie’s character Louisa May Foster (played by Shirley MacLaine), which on its turn was an homage to Countess Mona von Bismarck, presented on the first day of the ongoing Paris Fashion Week.

Ulyana Sergeenko dresses her heroine in airy feathers and fancy dresses, fur coats made with money bills and shoes with cat ears, mixing irony with glamour. A feline theme runs through, naughtily: cat paws are scattered on leopard prints – a first for Sergeenko – or turn into embroidery on gloves and dresses; the image of a cat becomes a structural element on corsets and dresses. Money is another motif, as banknotes of the Ulyana Sergeenko Bank are printed on organza and gathered on boas, coats, trains, becoming an amusing substitute to fur. Money becomes a print, too, or is rendered in hand-knitted Vologda lace. The season’s flower is the gladiolus – a memory of the bouquets given to the hostess of the party – appearing on jacquard skirts, dresses, and bright green and red pointy shoes. Mohair sweaters are embellished with appliqué of embroidered roses; dresses are entirely covered with colored feathers. And along with the models, the designer’s muses appear at the party – burlesque star Dita von Teese, artist Nadia Lee Cohen, actress Ornella Muti.
