Patriotic headdresses

In Ukraine, a collective of stylists and photographers called Treti Pivni (Third Rooster) produces portraits of women wearing the traditional headdress known as the vinok. Formerly reserved for young girls at weddings or popular festivals, it was composed of twelve varieties of flowers held together by ribbons cut to the length of the braids. In a more striking and fashionable incarnation, it’s now finding a new young audience and is perfectly in tune with the wave of patriotism that has been sweeping Ukraine since the 2014 Revolution.
