GYUNEL COUTURE Spring Summer 2018 Collection
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Wild Swans”, as well as art deco interiors and jewelry, Gyunel’s latest couture collection for Spring/Summer 2018 combines geometric panels with feather embroidery and innovative feather-slashed leathers in a surrealist context. Gyunel’s signature diamond cut silhouette, as well as a contrasting palette of mint, red, black and rose gold, combined with ombre brushmarks, work together with her painted gargoyles coming to life through this collection that tells the story of a symbolic swan through the lens of nihilism. Drawing additional inspiration from Russian ballet and its famed prima ballerinas, it all fuses together in a perfect harmony that highlights the couturier’s continuous creativity.
A Central Saint Martins and London College of Fashion graduate, Gyunel was a successful artist before expanding her horizons in Couture. Known for their ethereal prints and unique designs, Gyunel’s collections start with her creative oil paintings that are then transformed into working fashion designs. These paintings are subsequently turned into prints on duchess, organza, crepe de chine and georgette created in-house in her London atelier.
