Karavay

Hi everyone !

Today I’d like to tell you about another Ukrainian brand I discovered at the Benext Showroom : Karavay.

R0012668  R0012667  R0012665  R0012664I have been impressed by the quality of their garments. Everything is handmade with care and a certain savoir-faire. I photographed the sleeve of a blue see-through blue dress because I am fond of the way prints appear. They use a special process, they are not embroidered but really taken into the fabric. The detail picture just above shows you how the beige weave with golden hints is incrusted with wool. Their inspiration comes from traditional Russian art and iconography, especially for prints and patterns (I spotted a cute red dress with little flowers looking like berries 🙂 ). Plus, they enjoy a long collab with Swarovski for little beads and pearls.

This week took place their fashion show where the clothes I saw were presented. I’ve selected some pictures from the runway taken by Andrii Tovstyzhenko. We retrieve the blue transparent dress, the beige one, the colorful ensemble of the very first picture and the floral dress I’ve just told you about in the second image below.

I think it is great to have had these two visions of their collection : discovering and feeling the clothes at the showroom and watching a fashion show, seeing how clothes fall when they are worn. I love the lenghts of the dresses, mid-calf or ankle. Some fabrics are a bit rigid like and other are flowing and light like the orange. That’s a really nice work !

Check out their Facebook page and Instagram if you want to see more 😉
