Postcards from Kiev : O'she and it's Delicate Charm

by Linda Bezos

Mercedes Benz Kiev Fashion Days has been a great platform for designers coming out of Ukraine. This year's stand out show from MBKFD was O'she, the brainchild of Natalia Koshely who wanted to create a lingerie collection that had elements of self-sufficiency and sexuality as part of the DNA. And looking at her first collection it is fair to say that mission is fully accomplished. The foundational colors of black and beige provided the basis for the overarching narrative of strong feminity with a touch of intrigue. The delicate materials added a sense of whimsy and playfulness while remaining true to it's foundational values.
