About the author
Sabrina (who is old as fuck) has more energy than a Duracell bunny, and uses it to dance in the newest clubs, eat too much junk food, play all the videogames, examine apps and shop - even though she has more than enough clothes. Sorry Earth.

Now there are some things that I wish I could pull off but can’t. Nata Ryzh‘s collection is one of those things. Sure, there are some pieces that could work (the less bohemian ones in the beginning), but that seventies vibe never really did the trick for me, unfortunately. I do think everybody else should wear it, and make the streets of Amsterdam an even better and happier place to look at (while making me green with envy).

This collection was about happiness, comfort and probably.. peace

The collection, called Shambala was inspired by a mythical kingdom. I don’t know in what mythical kingdom I would need a pants suit, but looking at it; I’m glad I apparently do. The pieces range from almost work attire to flowy skirts to kaftans. With this, she shows an ability to reach very different women. This was one of those shows where even the models seemed to enjoy wearing the clothes. Maybe it’s not obvious in all the shots, but you could definitely spot a slight smirk here and there. Or maybe it was because they all looked so pretty with their curls and seventies hairstyles.

Kaleidoscope prints and people almost touching stones

If you focused on the prints it was like looking through a kaleidoscope – which also would’ve been an awesome name, although maybe a bit too obvious. This collection was about happiness, comfort.. and probably peace. See, the name is borrowed from the most powerful energy field in the world, a mythical place (located supposedly somewhere in or near the Gobi desert) and corresponds with the chakra on the crown of your head. I’m not making this stuff up, click here for people who are almost touching stones and fasting for 54 (!) days. This would explain the seventies vibe as well, it being a time of peace, man.

Nata Ryzh captured a tranquil moment at Amsterdam Fashion Week, showing a great collection. There were some pieces I liked more than others but all in all, it fueled my wish of long hair and kaftans again so I would say: mission accomplished. I suggest you feast your eyes on the photos, while I’ll be dreaming of relaxing in the desert, making peace with the fact that a kaftan looks horrible on me.
