The ELLE Ukraine August 2013 editorial goes to the country for some inspiration. In fact, specifically turns to the Amish way of life. From the typical brimmed black hat to the full skirts and collars, the outfits could easily have been taken from the closet of an Amish woman. That is, if a person doesn't look too closely at the details. Although simple, there is certainly nothing plain about them.
Styled by Natalia Osadchaya, the monochromatic outfits showcased throughout the ELLE Ukraine August 2013 are full of form-fitting silhouettes and modern textures that any woman would want to get their hands on. Yet the lush backdrops, which were lensed by Nikolay Biryukov, give them some context.
