Ulla Johnson Pre-Fall 2019 Womenswear Collection – New York


August 2021 Sales (LATEST)

For Pre-Fall 2019, Ulla Johnson took inspiration from artist Hilma af Klint‘s works, the great abstract expressionist who used color and texture to create her one-of-a-kind images which are currently displayed at the Guggenheim museum. This season, Johnson also took on both elements—color and texture—as the main focal points of her collection. The colors she used here are as vibrant as ever, from the rustic tones of cinnamon and mustard yellow to the rich shades of wine and aubergine. Texture, on the other hand, came in the denim and knits, both of which Johnson has played with before in her previous collections. Here, however, they ironically provided a softer touch to the more eccentric and slightly bohemian edge of the entire line. Johnson was also unafraid in taking on new silhouettes for this offering, such as the round shapes with the denim outfits and the ruffled necklines of the more delicate frocks. Like Klint, Ulla Johnson is an artist whose visual appeal is only the surface of her intricate greatness, and this collection shows her at her best.
