Let’s kick off our coverage of New York Fashion Week’s Spring 2019 ready to wear collections with a look at Ulla Johnson whose show was one of our favourites so far. 

Delicate flowers and bold stripes characterised Johnson’s collection. High necklines and modest hemlines show our preoccupation with discordant times and a more pragmatic outlook. This is not to say that there weren’t any fun pieces: flirty miniskirts were paired with mutton leg or balloon sleeves, while prairie dresses found a counterbalance in modern, streamlined styles. Johnson showed patchwork pieces on bodices which managed to be both graphic and feminine. The clothes were imbued with a folksy, ethnic spirit and for Spring Johnson called on both Namibian and Victorian influences and placed an emphasis on craft.
