The concept of Marta Wachholz SS 2022 collection involves the use and interpretation of visual images of Kosiv ceramics and visual elements from the field of aviation. The motifs and colors of Kosiv ornaments, as well as the activities of the outstanding aircraft designer and inventor of Ukrainian descent Igor Sikorsky, who was the owner of Sikorsky Aircraft and aircraft and helicopter development engineer in the 1920s and 1950s, were the source of inspiration for creation of the collection. Marta Wachholz combined elements of Hutsul hand-painted ceramics with elements of aviation clothes – parachute straps, hats, pilots' accessories, etc. A unique fabric design with a pattern used on authentic Kosiv ceramic tiles was created for the collection.
