Spring/Summer ’18 ready-to-wear collection on SILKNY.com. The new collection is designed for the modern woman and addresses the need for versatile clothing options, using high quality fabrics and a range of new patterns. SILKNY is also introduced a new silk-tencel fabric blend to select styles in the SS’18 collection. The fabric is crafted using a non-traditional weaving technique that enhances the texture and strength.
SILKNY’s creation was inspired by the luxurious look and feel of silk and silk blends and the brand sources their high-quality fabrics from all over the world, including France, Italy, and China, a top silk manufacturer for centuries. With a vision that continuously merges contemporary style with timeless elegance, the new collection includes silk-tencel off the shoulder blouses and high-low tops, silk-linen trousers and jackets, flowing silk dresses and more.
SILKNY’s head designer, Michele Lee, began her career working for some of the biggest names in fashion including Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and, Armani before transitioning into a career in manufacturing. Now, with over 10 years of manufacturing and high-end design experience, she’s taken the opportunity to design and produce her own brand.
Regarding her inspiration for SS’18, Lee says “I was very inspired by everyday New York City life, especially the patterns that are all over the city. Traffic lanes and crosswalks translate into big and bold stripes, the bursts of culture translate into dots of varying sizes. And the romance of the city inspires a touch of floral, especially in the Spring. My overall vision for the brand is just one of modern femininity. I love high fashion, but fashion to me needs to be versatile. It will always be important to me that our pieces instill a sense of power and confidence in the women who wear them. As a working woman and young mother, it’s also very important to me that our collection be comfortable and high-quality, which is why I continue to personally assess and approve the fit and finish of every piece in the collection before it is sent for manufacturing.”

The brand was founded at the end of 2014 as an opportunity to combine Lucrezia Maria Monaca studies and the world of luxury with the purpose to satisfy a market need: elegant shoes with a contemporary twist.
It focuses on high-end market with the spirit of creating not just a shoe but a piece of art thrilling at first sight and adapting perfectly to any foot shape.
The quality is very high; maximum attention is paid to the materials used, all of high quality, and to the samples production.
The designer is involved in every production step, from the raw materials to the final product. She drew inspiration from the world surrounding her and her deepest passions.
She has always been fascinated by the fashion world, not in its most frivolous meaning, but as a vehicle to express your personality.
The brand’s MISSION: recreating the personality of each woman in each shoe.
The intent is to combine tradition, research, innovation and competence craftsmanship. It is no coincidence, in fact, that the shoes are produced in Vigevano, always known for his starring role in the footwear industry and Naples, renowned for the craftsmanship. The products are 100% Made in Italy and hand-finished in their details. Our customer has to be able to wear our heels from dawn to dusk, and thus the collection offers different heel heights: flats and 7 cm heel to wear all day long, 10 cm heel for special occasions, giving the right to our customers to be pampered from something that makes them dream, feel beautiful and admired.
These shoes factories are also a synonymous of quality and reliability because they have collaborations with important market players such as Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blanik, Oscar De La Renta and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Lucrezia Maria Monaca tries, metaphorically, to put herself in her customer’s shoes. She imagines who wears her shoes as a optimist luxury elegant woman that does not take herself too seriously, capable of going from casual to glamorous, been always thoughtful to quality and details, and always ready to play with fashion.

Ukrainian up and coming label THEO presented their FW18/19 collection during Kiev Fashion Days. The new collection is ready to be seen in out showroom.
This is what the Designer, Teo Dekan had to say about his new collection:
In my work, I’m in constant search of a “perfect female wardrobe”, research the nature of HER, THEO Woman. HER personality, HER feelings and emotions, HER character become clearer and more nuanced with each collection. The new THEO collection Fall-Winter 2018/19 is the result of my immersion into the style of THEO Woman.
The main idea is “One collection to suit all, and unique for each and every one.”
THEO Woman is absolutely natural, SHE doesn’t strike a pose or crave attention. SHE is rarely interested in what others think of her, SHE is busy with HER own emotion and HER fresh experience from HERSELF and HER new outfits. HER choice doesn’t take much time, as SHE dresses for HERSELF.
The magic of HER originality is in elimination of standards.
SHE never dresses for an occasion, at the same time SHE is always appropriately dressed.
SHE doesn’t showcase.
SHE observes. Observes HER feelings, HER experience and HERSELF.
SHE is honest with HERSELF.
HER sexuality comes not from the depth of HER neckline or the height of HER heels.
HER sexuality is natural like that of a woman during sex — tousled, wild-haired, wet.
SHE is equally attracted to bold innovative design and the ease of a new wardrobe. This controversial unity gives HER the feeling of effortless discipline.
SHE finds the inspiration for sophistication and low-key femininity in dark romanticism, expressed in soft pleats of dresses and tops made of viscose crepe with a subtle floral print in green and bordeaux colors, on a dramatic black background, with contrasting vinyl stripe at the dress hemline. To make a strong look SHE wears a dress with “mannish” straight pants with slits at inner side seams lower down at the hem. On the neck, she tied a double side vinyl scarf.
The chic and high voltage are achieved by the “au masculin” part of HER wardrobe.
An oversized tomboy shirt with seasonal cut wide sleeves. The shirt is made of various fabrics, among which are Tencel — an eco-friendly fabric made from Australian eucalyptus with a velour finish, flowing viscose crepe with satin finish, light jacquard fabric with a silk taffeta effect. The shirt is presented in base colors: soft white and grey-blue, as well as in graphic prints of the season, and khaki color.
SHE wears the shirt with a pair of high-waisted rounded trousers with front asymmetrical pleats and elongated masculine tailored collarless jacket designed with shoulder pads and seasonal cut sleeves with D-ring loops belt to create fitted shape and to cinch the waist. In this season, it is presented in two fabrics: pressed velours with cracked texture in anthracite color, and ink-colored smooth vinyl with satin finish.
HER casual chic lies in the masculine tailored jacket with seasonal cut sleeves in navy blue fluid gabardine with cape hood detail at the back in “paperlike” fabric with drawstrings at the hem. It matches perfectly with a pair of high-waist carrot-shaped trousers with raw edge center crease at front and rolled up raw edge contrasted cuffs in white fabric.
SHE is attentive to detail.
HER perfect “shelter” from the autumn weather is inside the vinyl oversized maxi coat.
HER special feelings are brought about by a seemingly simple dress, a seasonal must-have, “Francesca” dress. This X-shaped dress with raw edges and bias seams is available in various colors and textures.
Each of them provides HER with true beauty which opens up not on the runway, but when SHE, THEO Woman, wears it.
