Inspired by the deep sea, yet reminiscent of minimalist architecture, Kostya Omelya's first resort collection fused linear outlines with fluid accents. Wide pants and high collared dresses that took the form of columns were complemented with frilled peplums. White formless shift dresses were sectioned into colors of mint green, egg shell blue, and pastel pink, giving the androgynous collection a feminine feel. A synopsis of Omelya's collection can be seen in his quasi-tuxedo dress: a soft skirt sliced by a high asymmetrical cut, paired with a masculine jacket in a shade of lavender.
The most important feature of Omelya's resort collection is that he allows the wearer to command her sexuality - the straight silhouettes that are spliced with high slits only reveal a certain amount of skin. His talent for control replaces the vulnerability of bare skin with an authorative, intellectual sexiness - it is minimalism a la Ukraine and Omelya is one of its leaders.
