SUMMER WINE. Collection Inspired By Nancy Sinatra
Nancy Sinatra celebrates her birthday on June 8th. Ukrainian designer George Lvov made a special collection of feminine pieces dedicated to the pop-icon of the 1960s.
“Strawberries, cherries, and an angel's kiss in spring. My summer wine is really made from all these things,” – lyrics from the song “Summer wine” flashed in my mind, when I saw deep and rich velvet and tender silk for the first time,” – commented George Lvov.
The song "Summer Wine" performed by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood in 1967 describes a woman seducing a man with her summer wine made of strawberries and cherries. The designer notices his delicious shade of ripe berries in French velvet and Italian silk shimmering in the sun.
The phrase "Angel's kiss" in the song means a drink in which it is difficult to taste alcohol. The man with silver spurs got drunk from the wine, his eyelids grew heavy. He tried to get up and leave, but he couldn't. That’s how captivative and unforgettable looks woman in the G.LVOV set.
The music takes us to America in the 1960s – time of sexual revolution and quality fabrics. For his collection, George Lvov uses 100% French silk velvet and organic Italian silk.
Each piece is hand-sewn. A top with a seductive V-neck embodies qualities of preciousness and individuality. Defined by an antique Florentine technique of weaving, this unique piece can take up to two days to create. Paired together top and shorts create a timeless aristocratic look.
Nancy Sinatra’s first signature hit "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" in 1965 became an anthem of the sexual revolution. The song showcased her provocative but good-natured style.
“Nancy loved to demonstrate her body: open shoulders, deep V-neckline, short skirts. She always looked confident and never vulgar. I looked through archive photos of that time and created a dress that reflects Nancy's style", – added George Lvov.
The length and shape of her favorite Mary Quant silhouettes in G.LVOV sleep dress "Nancy" are exactly the same. Though, thanks to modern materials it looks chic, hot, and luxurious.
This dress can be worn both at home, seducing a person you love with every movement, or as an outfit, seducing the whole world around. After all, if passion can be embodied in fabric, then this is natural silk.
Each piece from the G.LVOV collection embodies the spirit of refined aristocracy and the designer's vision of female beauty.
