Loving Lublu :: Kira Plastinina

You may have been eyeing the dress featured in yesterday’s tabletop post, and a few of you even commented on it, so I thought I’d share a bit more about the designer today, as I’ve been completely inspired by the bright colors and motifs of her SS13 collection

I’ll admit, I wasn’t super familiar with Lublu by Kira Plastinina prior to this shoot. As fate would have it, however, I received an email showcasing the SS13 collection only a week before we were set to put this tabletop together, and I immediately responded asking if we could borrow some dresses for the setting.

With the main theme of this season being ethnic motifs borrowed from the conventional ideas of African costumes and sophisticated elements transcribed from the ancient tribes of South America, her collection seemed the perfect accompaniment to the table…


Rarely do I get the opportunity to don such beautifully tailored pieces, so it was a treat to have a several of these ensembles to choose from – each fitting so perfectly, and the quality of the material so good.


I loved how the collection transitioned from bright and bold geometrics and some simple modern cuts to very traditional shapes doused in ethnic patterns. While the neon yellow chameleon dress stole my heart for the shoot, we couldn’t resist also showing off the full-length palm print dress. I’ve never been in anything so lush and breezy in my life!

And now, I’m quite ready for another tropical vacation.
