Vita Kin is the Ukrainian fashion stylist-turned-fashion designer who made folksy frocks a wardrobe staple and summer must-have for her famous friends like Anna Dello Russo and Leandra Medine ever since she launched her breakout eponymous dress line in 2015.
She also turned vyshyvanka (say “vee-she-vang-car”), or traditional embroidery, from a foreign tongue twister into a part of our fashion vocabulary. It was our most recent understanding of Eastern bloc style before Gvasalia, Rubchinskiy and co. changed that aesthetic and discourse.
Lately, the designer has been busy with her latest venture: a tie-up collection of dresses with the French swimwear and lingerie label Eres that launched worldwide on March 1. The line takes cues from the summer-hued colour palette of Eres swimwear line this season which comprises shades such as cerulean, navy blue, marigold and fuchsia.
While Kin’s dresses are meant to complete the out-of-the-pool wardrobe, we think it goes just as well as a smart daytime frock (with flats as seen shown by the designer herself below) or a pretty evening dress (just swap it with heels) Here, we list down what you need to know about the collection.
