NOW NEW: ULLA JOHNSON SS 2017

ARGENTINE TWIST

 Coveted for her cool boho flair and exquisite handcrafted pieces, for spring designer Ulla Johnson took a trip to South America, evoking the vast Argentine prairies through a vivid color palette of pale yellow, light blue, orange, deep blue and vibrant pink, plus white and tan. The native New Yorker and avid globetrotter played with volumes, working both slouchy and structured shapes, which she adorned with cascades of ruffles, tiers and lace. Long and flowy dresses, solid or patterned, steal the spotligh, often embroidered and hand-crocheted. While the dresses are distinctly girly, there was a manlier moment with sleek tailoring, gaucho pants and vests. Needless to say, her signature genuine-yet-elegant aesthetic is summer perfect.
