The Ukrainian designer created a collection for Gucci
Ukrainian designer Vita Kin created a collection of clothes with Ukrainian embroidery for the Gucci Vault line. This is a conceptual online store that sells mostly vintage items from the fashion house. The capsule is only available on the Gucci Vault platform.
Since launching her eponymous label in 2008, Ukrainian designer Vita Kin has built a devoted following for her elaborately decorated artisanal linen creations. Originally inspired by traditional native ‘Vyshyvanka’ embroidery, the designs have evolved to encompass age-old techniques from around the world. Working in her Kyiv atelier, a team of specially trained seamstresses combine these techniques with modern technology to produce pieces of exceptional quality and craftsmanship. Although assuredly contemporary, Vita Kin’s use of bold color, cutwork and embroidered geometric and floral patterns.
This exclusive capsule, only available on Vault, showcases the best of Vita Kin’s modern bohemian chic with high-skimming midi and ankle-length maxi dresses with distinct ‘70s silhouettes. There are also linen tops, skirts and scarves skillfully augmented with broderie anglaise, appliqués, pin-tuck pleating, bell sleeves or scallop edging to create elaborate, joyous designs that are simultaneously both innocently folkloric and effortlessly sophisticated.
