  • RITO collection Spring/Summer 2017

Inspired by Zaha Hadid futuristic buildings our designer Alyona Pikul reflected in forms, lines and textures of RITO podium collection the aesthetics of Zaha Hadid hotel complex in Belgrade or Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku, for example. Honeycomb windows are featured in the texture of voluminous white jackets, that next season RITO offers to wear with wide skirt-pants, culottes, long straight dresses or pencil skirts. The jacket wide sleeves and wrap-over clasp goes back to the traditions of Japanese kimono and when combined with wide leg pants it accentuates the waistline, X-shaped silhouette and Japanese style. Instead of fasteners on cardigans and summer coats our designers used drawstrings, that hang down in vertical lines and thus make the figure more slender. Texture contrast - openwork, loose voluminous knit, smooth fabric - provides space for architectural silhouette design.

This knitwear collection contains elegant inclusions of sewn things: pale blue chiffon pleated skirt to match summer knitted coat, white wrap-over blouse, black and white tops with wavy stripes, shirt-dress with bright green collar. The main trend colors of the summer season are navy blue, light blue and orange - they moderate black, white, mustard yellow, lush green that take the role of color accents.

Smooth, curved, wavy lines by Zaha Hadid are "reflected" in silhouette lines ("wings" of skirt-pants); in cut lines: wavy sleeves, necklines, pants hem, splits on skirts; in texture - for this collection we designed special knit pattern, which resembles radio waves or "white noise" as it is traditionally called by graphic artists.

Carpet with puzzle pattern by architect Frank Gehry inspired our designer to create "puzzle" decoration: delicate openwork knitting, embroidery with beads and sequins on crop sweaters, patterns on dresses.

Accessories are represented by beaded brooches-puzzles and brooches-honeycombs of pastel colors - by Olesya Kirmasova and Irina Sarzhynska (CrochetOK brand) - and wavy knitted belts. The image is complemented with black suede mule shoes with wavy cut.
