Ulyana Sergeenko’s Couture Collection for Fall/Winter 2012-2013 sparked such a response on its July 6th debut, the Russian street-style-star has become another example of fashionista-turned-designer, with the talent and creative genius to back up the brand.

The collection was founded upon Sergeenko’s signature look: a full vintage ankle skirt with tucked-in blouse or sweater. Perfectly crafted skirts were constructed from fine knits, wools, furs, quilted silks, and lace. Pant suits, rompers, and knee-high military boots trickled into the collection, offering a modern, girlish charm to a totalitarian soviet nostalgia. Military cut, fur-lined wool coats were dispersed amongst the occasional peasant dress.

One look was more intriguing then the next, yet the most captivating element were the open-toed, front-slit nude booties, elongating the ankle where the retro hemline ceased. Following Chanel and preluding Armani Privé  is not where most lesser-known designers would chose to show, but Sergeenko presented her couture with flawless craftsmanship.
