The vital dress of the summer of 2016 comes from Vyshyvanka by Vita Kin.
Inspired by traditional Ukrainian folk embroidery design, Kin’s dresses have been the next hottest thing of fashion and social media — such as Miroslava Duma,Amanda Brooks, Anna Dello Russo, Leandra Medine and a few others — who wore these dresses on Instagram over the past several months.
Featuring different wears to the design such as maxi and knee-length dresses,flashy blouses, eye popping rompers, this vacation-effortless designs are full of bright geometric patterns and dramatic fringing, and are based on traditional folk dresses. “My collections are created not according to the season but by inspiration,” says designer Vita Kin. “I’m inspired by the fading traditions and techniques of various ancient cultures for making and decorating clothing. Embroidery, macramé and appliqué are my passion.”
Her pieces are so popular and trendy this year.Made by Kiev native Vita Kin, the styles sold out on Matchesfashion.com and Net-a-porter e-tailers sold out within a matter of hours after release. While ideally worn for summer, the dresses worn all over social media were actually meant for fall styles and shown with layered with turtlenecks, tights and jackets. Net-a-porter will continue with the styles for fall. But as popular as this Instagram trend was, Sept. 7 is when the old fashion rule comes into play about white after Labor Day. It may be time to change it up, styling with layers to keep this timeless piece for the rest of the year.
Super-sized tassels coupled with Aztec embroidery, and dramatic bell-sleeves have earned the Ukranian designer a huge following on Instagram, where she started out selling her dresses to people who followed her who begged to know where to buy them.
She’s fast earned herself a dedicated following by her high demand one of a kind designs, which includes the likes of Anna Dello Russo, bloggers in the fashion who are writing, wearing and reviewing. Net-a-Porter are now selling the lust-have bold blouses, colorful jumpsuits and frocks, – just in time for us to flaunt them on our holidays and add layers for the winter.
You only have to look at the amount of comments on these fashion-influencers Vita Kin-wearing posts to see how in-demand the dresses are. Designer Lisa Marie Fernandez says she’s never been stopped as many times as when wearing A Vita Kin dress which everyone wants around the world.
Based on traditional Slavic designs, they’re made from luxe linens. Every piece is wearable chambray denim hues or with a touch of neon to give a pop factor.
She’s been designing them for over 8 years. She started off my making them for friends and family but it seemed as if she just exploded out of nowhere, cryptically skyrocketing through the Instagram generation instantly with no website or sale page.
She reconstructs traditional dresses adjusting them to a boho-chic eccentric mood, adding a hippie vibe. A perfect fusion of folk style, refinement and modernity that was rapidly embraced by street effortless style.
