The collection of the new season designer Elena Reva dedicates to mysterious aphrodisiacs. Fragrant substances derived from exotic plants are shrouded in hundreds of legends. In Indonesia the bed of the newlyweds is decorated with ylang-ylang flowers, tuberose plunges the most virtuous into sin, and jasmine symbolizes a passion that is stronger than any restrictions.
Exploring the subject, Elena Reva creates aphrodisiacs clothes – dresses with slits at the waist, that reminds the flower petals, one shoulder tops, and the brand signature bustiers.
In FW19 season Elena Reva prefers more minimalistic silhouettes, asymmetrical solutions with folds comparing with romantic flounces in the previous seasons. Feminine plots are balanced by jackets based on tuxedo and trousers with stripes borrowed from the classic men's wardrobe.
The primary colors of the collection are white, black and gold. The dramatic colors are complemented by smoky gray, green of a deep shade "pesto", electric blue and pink - this time with silver coating. Thick wool and flowing silk complement the weightless chiffons.
The flower print for ELENAREVA was developed by Polina Choni. The young artist created a series of graphic prints of living lilies by using an offset printing press.
