BOBKOVA Runway Show SS23
BOBKOVA’s new collection speaks about freedom on a large scale. It is the freedom of identity, explored in traditional local crafts and translated into modernity. It is an emancipation from gendered conventions when the wardrobe becomes a playground for endless experimentation with its elements. It is the freedom of one’s own sensuality, when the eroticism of a semi-transparent dress is felt in the same way as that of baggy pants. The heart of the collection is the architectural minimalism that is the hallmark of BOBKOVA, inspired by Japanese cuts. Skirt and trouser suits together with oversized shirts and asymmetrical dresses in black and soft neutrals have always been the protagonists of each collection. They can be styled in a gender-neutral way. For the designer, these pieces represent an ideal of casual wear. Like the voluminous poncho dress, a comfortable and versatile but extremely elegant piece, the Dress, a jacket or a beach cover-up can be worn. This season, these key pieces are voluntarily ‘unfinished,” with open seams, visible stitches and cuts that represent the handmade in the Kiev atelier of the brand. The designer explores traditional Ukrainian crafts to propose meaningful accessories. For this collection, she explored the ancient peasant techniques of making jewelry beads by firing them in rural kilns in the Ternopil region. The beads, decorated with naive motifs, were used in handmade textile belts made of silk and cotton
and in earrings. The Cossack leather shoes are also handmade in Ukraine. BOBKOVA was founded in 2000 and is one of the most important Ukrainian fashion brands on the international stage. In 2022 BOBKOVA is expanding international contacts and exploring new markets to retain the brand’s team, support the Ukrainian economy and help its home country win.

Each of the special edition nightwear sets is embroidered with a commemorative message and includes a reproduction of an poster announcing performances of Roof Piece in 1973.
In an age when so much dance is spreading online, model and actress Lily McMenamy has reinterpreted the Roof Piece for TikTok, which feels like an honest modern interpretation of the original ethos. Movement director Jaime Scott of Trisha Brown Dance Company guided Lily in reinterpreting the performance. Communication across distance is the essential essence of this dance. The piece is simple and radical at the same time – just like Tekla.
