“Free blue” and “energetic yellow”, that is what Pantone experts themselves called them.
Yellow-blue – the Ukrainian's flag colors that are a strong reference and resistance symbol for Ukrainians, are becoming the most fashionable and trending color combination of the year.
We can see those colors everywhere, in iconic buildings and squares, in fashion weeks and in the streets around the world. In this way the world is trying to support Ukraine in the fight against the Russian military invasion.
“The war in Ukraine has triggered the pain of a past trauma I have carried in me since 1993, when the same thing happened in my home country and I became a forever refugee,” Demna Gvasalia shared in a letter ahead of the launch of the new collection.
“This show needs no explanation. It is a dedication to fearlessness, to resistance, and to the victory of love and peace.”
I am from Georgia too and I share those deep painful feelings which are reflected in my art.
My painting ,,Peace" on the glass express my feelings about today's war and striving for peace.
an interesting reference is DressX, a digital clothing retailer from Ukraine, recently nominated LVMH Innovation Award 2022 Finalist, has created a range of AR filters including a bucket hat with “Act Now” written across it, a sweatshirt stating “I stand with Ukraine”, a heart- shaped dress and a pair of heart earrings, each in blue and yellow, for users to share on social media in exchange for a donation to charities supporting Ukraine.
In this difficult times those colors are everywhere and they will continue existence in the world as the most strong iconic definition freedom and Independence.
