Unafraid femininity: Ulla Johnson's Fall 2016 collection
By: LOGAN SOWA
The latest collection from designer Ulla Johnson is one we won't soon forget. The Manhattan-born designer described this season as a continuation of what she loves to do most, with a touch of extra luxury. "We wanted to take the sweetness and beauty of what we do and just inject it with another level of luxury as far as the materials and silhouettes," she explained.
And that's exactly what she did. Taking inspiration from the rock and roll of the '60s and grunge of the '90s, this season's silhouettes are a little closer to the body, and they emulate what Johnson described as "unafraid femininity."
When asked if there was any one person she'd love to dress, she spoke of how much it means to her for regular women to wear her clothes. Though it was hard to narrow it down, she did say it would be incredible to dress artist Helen Frankenthaler, as her art was a big inspiration for the fall collection. "I'm really inspired by painting always," she explained, "I think this palette was largely inspired by her work, so maybe Helen."
We were enthralled with the intricacies of every single piece -- from the ruffles to the embroidery and embellishments, the attention to detail in this collection is enchanting. It's the kind of clothing that will make you feel incredible just by putting it on. How could you not love pieces that simply radiate flirty, feminine feelings?
