ETNODIM designers have created a new collection of embroidered dresses and shirts based on the experience of a real Ukrainian safari.
Askania Nova became a source of inspiration for the development of a unique ornament and ethnic collection dedicated to a particular locality in Ukraine. The spirit of the wild steppe has become a distinctive imprint on women's dresses to make them even more bold.
Creating this collection gave us much more than we expected. The vivid impressions we have shared on our blog are the aesthetically beautiful photos that we will turn into a photo-book called "Inspired by Askania Nova", a reminder of the unique terrain that Ukrainians can be proud of. And most importantly - as unique as the terrain, the dresses. Dresses that can conquer cities with their naturalness.
Dress - Butterfly Dress
Dress - Jawa Blue
The Jawa Blue linen dress is reminiscent of the blue sky above the steppe. And the burgundy and white patterns in the shape of flowers on the model contrast successfully with the light blue material of the dress. The midi length and loose cut are comfortable for everyday life in the city or for a relaxing holiday at the seaside. If you want a new one - you can select the waist with the help of a blue belt.
In light clothing made of natural fabrics, you can feel closer to nature. In addition, Virgin linen model allows you to constantly change the image, it is only necessary to complement the floral ornament of the dress with your favorite accessories. Current overseas adds ease to the image.
Dress - Jawa
Yellow is the color of the steppe and summer. Jawa linen midi dress is a good option for the city or relaxing in hot places. The front of the model is symmetrical, on both sides, showing flowers and leaves. In addition, the dress has a delicate texture and loose cut, which makes it nice to the body and does not restrict movement. The image can be changed thanks to a belt made of the same material.
The embroidery on the Jungle Light model is like repeating the lines of a rainforest, and the length of the mussels gives the appearance of mystery. Linen and loose cut models help you feel comfortable throughout the day. The color of the dress, the wide sleeves and the embroidery give it an image of femininity. Thanks to the belt, you can create a romantic image by tying it in different ways.
Dress - Temple
Askania Nova is home to 500 species of plants and over 3000 species of animals. The linen Temple dress in white and green reminds us that the real temple is within us, in harmony with the world around us. The silhouette of the dress is relevant this season: wide cuffs emphasize on the top and sleeves. Ethnic embroidery on the dress was performed with a cross and a smooth surface.
Dress - Legend
The American bison, despite its appearance, is a very fragile animal. So is the Legend linen dress in boho style. Despite its versatility, the model is elegant and is suitable even for evening outings. All thanks to the plant print, which is the main focus of the image.
