Anna K Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2015 Kiev

The darling of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days Kiev continues to be the spritelike designer Anna Kolomoets. Her eponymous Anna K line is a perfect reflection of the 17-year-old designer/model’s playful and fun-loving approach to fashion.

Her positive persona this season focused its energy on transforming roadside warning signs and striped caution tape (some of it even roping off the catwalk) into sugar sweet designs. Traditional signpost becoming charming faux indicators for, say, a girl on a bike or striped cat crossings. All Kolomoets’ endearing signage was then strewn across tops, pants and skirts to create a vibrant polka dot design. 

As for the red and white warning tape, well, that wrapped up sweatshirts, was crafted into knee patches or lined up along the pleats of a skirt for a cute candy cane slant to the utilitarian material.

When the designer stepped away from this concept it was to add other adorable ideas into the mix. She continued with her popular fashion dictionary and iconic film message t-shirt concept on catwalk with definitions of “it-girl” or “fashionista” spelled out across a cotton top. Or, alternatively, the name of a fashion film (Belle du Jour, Pretty in Pink) in block lettering on a black background made to look like film stock. This concept also trickled over onto the Anna K accessories with clutch bags branded with other famous movie titles.

To finish off this girly collection, the designer introduced two other “awh, how adorable” prints: one made up of different cartoon character eyes expressing a myriad of emotions, the other featuring drawings of doll house furniture.

For some the show, taken as a whole, might have felt like a cloying collection. But as the designer, who walked in her own show, took her bow it was hard not to get caught up in all of Anna K’s optimistic energy.
