VERY VYSHYVANKA: The vital dress of summer 2015: Vyshyvanka by Vita Kin. Inspired by traditional Ukrainian folk embroidery, Kin’s dresses have been the darling of the tastemakers of fashion and social media — such as Miroslava Duma, Anna Dello Russo, Leandra Medine and Amanda Brooks — who paraded their dresses on Instagram over the past several months.
Made by Kiev native Vita Kin, the styles sold out on Matchesfashion.com and Net-a-porter (the e-tailer carried four exclusive styles) within a matter of hours. While worn for summer, the dresses sported all over social media were actually fall styles originally shown layered with turtlenecks, tights and jackets. Net-a-porter will continue with the styles for fall (apparently in the same linen), which Kin noted “will surely go as fast.” But as popular as this Instagram trend was, come Sept. 7, as the old warning about white after Labor Day goes, it may be time to hang it up — or at least add layers.
