Behind a name that single-handedly evokes the plains of eastern Ukraine hides an opportunely minimalist and feminine ready-to-wear label. It’s bias? To create clothes that go beyond time and trends to shape their own reality.
Welcome to a stylistic universe that lies between femininity and masculinity, where the sketches of Rodin enter into dialogue with the performances of Mona Hatoum. The Spring-Summer 2019 collection is an ode to romanticism in all its modernity. Using precious and natural materials, the collection just as easily combines satin with ribbon as it does raffia with cotton thread.
A masculine suit is enhanced with feminine lines, while transparent mesh is accented with leather detailing and taekwondo belts are effortlessly combined with soft draping and deliberate asymmetry.
A virtuoso of fashion
With duality as a common theme, the LITKOVSKAYA label draws on the enchanting poetry of its eponymous founder, Lili Litkovskaya. And for good reason, the young designer’s moodboard could just as well feature the latest Nick Cave clip as it could Raphael’s frescoes; multiple influences that have led to the creation of pertinent silhouettes, haloed with success.
A winner of four Best Fashion Awards and an Elle Style Award, the young designer has attracted interest from all over the world, from L’Eclaireur Paris, Selfridges department store in London and the famous eShop Moda Operandi. An ascent that is as deserving as it is understated, just like its aesthetics.
