I cannot express how thrilled I was when I saw the front page of last week’s Sunday Styles section. Right there, front and center, was my ultimate girl crush – Ulyana Sergeenko. Ulyana is a designer/photographer/street style darling (I’ve written about here before in this post) and one of the lovely ladies featured in this week’s Weekend Reading selection. The article is titled ‘The Czarinas Are Back’ and talks about the recent influx of Russian fashionistas on the style scene. These ladies are editors, stylists and writers in addition to being die-hard luxury consumers. Being born in Eastern Europe, I have always kept an eye on Russia’s small yet extremely talented group of fashionistas and couldn’t be happier that they’re getting the notice they deserve. Full New York Times article, right this way!
1. This week Ulyana presented her couture collection in Paris – the only way I can describe it is “Soviet Military Chic” at it’s best! View the full collection here.
2. A while back, the talented folks over at The Coveteur photographed some of Miroslava Duma’s (a prominent member of the Russian “it” girl crew) gorgeous belongings during a stay at The Plaza for NY Fashion Week – here are the drool worthy photos from the shoot.
4. I devoured The Perks of Being a Wallflower in two nights. Yes, I know it’s a short book . But seriously, I couldn’t put it down. I can not recommend this book enough – especially since the film adaptation is coming out soon! Please read it so we can all collectively gush about how amazing it is!
Happy Weekend everyone!
