YANINA Haute Couture Paris – Marie Antoinette meets the Queen of France

Yulia Yanina is thinking of her heroines: Marie Antoinette, Queen of France.  The main characters this season are corsets, bows, linen and the 18th century male camisole, all reinterpreted in a modern style. Marie Antoinette’s favourite flower, the violet, is also represented through decorative embroidery used on ball gowns and airy skirts. The colours and fabrics resemble the sublime garden of Versailles on an enchanted night. Black, blue, browns, silk velvet and grey knitwear are combined and matched with stunning black lace. Impeccable and strict cuts are complemented by lingerie-like bases, including wide straps designed with embroidery and embellishments.

The YANINA woman is eternal, she travels through time and reveals her emotions in the most authentic way.
