Cementing the link between Russia and France’s history of an age old art form, Yanina’s Spring Summer 2016 collection brings history and culture together through ballet. Yanina’s inspirations shine through in her latest haute couture collection that uses embroidery, velvets, feathers, and tulle amid dresses that appear weightless, and conceal in a tasteful way.
An intimate look at the inspiration board of Yulia Yanina’s SS 2016 creations would show images of Mikhail Vrubel’s Swan princess. (The swan princess was the muse behind the pearl, grey dress in the very last image). There would be impressionist paintings, french novels, and literature in both Russian and French. While photos of Russia’s famed ballerinas Anna Pavlova, and Ida Rubenstien would be displayed as the influence behind the hat style in the collection (they used to wear hats of a similar fashion). Lastly Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes would be on the board to further solidify the link between Russia and France in this romantic, and dreamlike collection.
