Since launching her eponymous label in 2008, Ukrainian designer Vita Kin has built a devoted following for her elaborately decorated artisanal linen creations. Originally inspired by traditional native ‘Vyshyvanka’ embroidery, the designs have evolved to encompass age-old techniques from around the world. Working in her Kyiv atelier, a team of specially trained seamstresses combine these techniques with modern technology to produce pieces of exceptional quality and craftsmanship. Although assuredly contemporary, Vita Kin’s use of bold color, cutwork and embroidered geometric and floral patterns, conjure a dreamy ‘70s bohemia that has a genuine cultural authenticity.
This exclusive capsule, only available on Vault, showcases the best of Vita Kin’s modern bohemian chic with high-skimming midi and ankle-length maxi dresses with distinct ‘70s silhouettes. There are also linen tops, skirts and scarves skillfully augmented with broderie anglaise, appliqués, pin-tuck pleating, bell sleeves or scallop edging to create elaborate, joyous designs that are simultaneously both innocently folkloric and effortlessly sophisticated.
