S/S 20

A Celebration of Connectedness

For Spring Summer 2020 Ulla Johnson embarks on a celebration of color and pattern creating a tableau of pastel and jewel toned splendor redolent of the rise and setting of the sun. Inspired by the rich cultural weaving of her native New York City, Ulla crafted a collection that honors distinct and diverse voices and the manner in which they convene and converse in complex dialogue with one another.


Our Set

In the simple and sublime grandeur of the daily rising and setting of the sun, Ulla Johnson delivers an emotionally charged environment for the presentation of the SS20 collection. Unfurling for over 2500 square feet across the expanse of the show space, the custom hand-painted backdrop expands on the visual lineage of color field abstraction and sets a singular mood of light, color, and texture. Created by the artists of Oliphant Studios in Bushwick over the course of 120 hours, layers upon layers of paint were applied to canvas, presenting a wash of color that both reflects and elaborates upon the palette of the collection. The organically undulating wooden sculptures root the ethereal mood of the backdrop in the here and now. Crafted from pine saplings, harvested from upstate New York and built in Greenwood Heights, Brooklyn, each structure required the painstaking attention of the makers days to soak, bend, and form into shape, echoing the craft of the collection itself. This juxtaposition of the dreamy luminous quality of the painting and the muscular yet delicate three dimensional wooden structures creates a visual sense of poetry and play that captures the beauty and strength of the season.

The transcendent voice of Nil√ľfer Yanya, the critically acclaimed British based band, set the sound of the season with a live performance.
