The Spanish brand Korsun is introducing a new collection SS 2018, which is a manifestation of the unique aesthetic concept of the company founder, and face of the brand, Katrine Korsun. Inspired by the art of contemporary, self-taught, Spanish artist Mercedes Lagunas, the designer has combined the charm of primeval art with innate femininity in her pieces.
“The works of Mercedes Lagunas are brought to life by her unique artistic style and creative use of a vivid color palette” - says Katrine Korsun. “The results radiate vivacity and originality which is my kind of fashion! We also happen to share a love of Spain’s rich culture and as- tonishing nature, which is full of warmth and sunshine.”
The key symbol of Mercedes’s art is the theme of the collection – the flower. Embodying the power of life, youth and natural beauty. Colorful flower buds blossom on blouses, tops, and sweaters, creating expressive accents. Another feature of artists canvases, which is shared by the Korsun brand, is color expression. It is demonstrated through original prints and unconventional color combinations. The collection’s accessories are wide, elongated pants and culotte pants, shortened jackets, flowing dresses and elegant overalls, yet the real gem of the line is the long pleated skirts with fresh colors, which are to be so trendy in the upcoming season.
Katrine Korsun’s masterful use of silk, viscose, wool and cashmere creates the optical and emotional effects she desires. Deep blue and orange tints coexist with dazzling white, tender peach, and juicy coral colors. This is how, through her creations, the designer has formed the image of the heroine of the brand – liberated, cheerful, spontaneous and blissful.
