Yulia Yadryshnikova bases collection on Luca Nichetto’s sofa cover

To emphasize the connection between the fashion and furniture worlds, Yulia Yadryshnikova created a special dress, conceived not only to be worn but also to become a cover for the Stanley sofa. Yulia Yadryshnikova took the upholstery of Luca Nichetto’s Stanley sofapart of design brand De La Espada’s collection launching in New York last week. Created “to emphasise the connection between the fashion and furniture worlds”, the dress can still be used as a seat cover.

The material, coloured yellow on one side and grey on the other, drapes over the shoulders and fastens at the midriff.
Yadryshnikova also used the same fabric to reinterpret two coats from a previous collection, giving the designs a more “structural” look. Three dresses with simple silhouettes form the second half of the collection. These designs feature layers of fabric in pastel shades, which are attached to the shoulder seams and can be worn over the front or back.

These layers reference the pages of a loose-leaf calendar that Yadryshnikova would turn over and fold into different shapes as a child. “The pieces are imagined as a single form with some parts acting separately and the silhouettes come along with the initial vision while all the specific lines and details appear, at later with pattern making and working with fabric”.
