Ulla Johnson Spring 2016
Ulla Johnson’s Spring 2016 collection is modern and whimsical, calling on the 1970s yet current and unique to the Manhattan-born designer. With its flowing, natural fabrics and delicate detailing, sometimes incorporating structure but mostly relaxed, the collection is ultra calm and perfect for spring.
As well as the careful choice of material, it is colour that adds to the gentle tone of the range. Between soft rusts and deep navy, rosy pinks and dusty pinks, mustard yellow and plenty of classic white, it’s a colour palette that evokes images of sun and soft grass, the sea and the Californian desert. The denim inviting, Johnson choosing to go for a paler hue, a faded almost baby blue.
Along with being a coherent range as a whole – in its effortlessly dreamy tone, Ulla Johnson’s Spring is one in which each garment has its own unique touch. From the long dresses that echo those in the much-referenced ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ with their delicate embroidery, to the wide-legged flares with belt ties, pinafore dresses with ruffled straps and jumpsuits with piping, each piece is imbued with detail that gives it a sense of difference. It’s a beautiful collection. Peaceful, inviting, and clearly made for the wearer.
