The new KOSTELNI capsule collection combines several styles: Ethno style, genuine leather accessories in the style of "Military" and a part of the Burlesque style which is a reminiscence of the 80's. The combination of applique and embroidery reflects the author's interpretation of the Ukrainian ornament. Polychromatic colors turning into light turquoise natural silk and a combination of beige mesh and coarse velvet silk or its imitation. An accessory in the form of a leather hoop reminiscent of aviation glasses completes the image. The main idea of the collection is a combination of traditional Ukrainian ethnic-style with the aviation style. "A combination of different styles is the future of fashion" - Maria Kostelni, founder and creative director of KOSTELNI Fashion House
