Maria Kolpakova è stata così gentile da permettermi un’intervista con la DESIGNER RUSSA e ringrazio entrambe per il tempo dedicatomi!
Intervista in esclusiva per Superfluonecessario.it Diritti riservati.
For my blog superfluonecessario.it I’d love to tell you who you are, who is Diana and her brand offers what and where to find it
Diana Ulanova is an artist, and it is inspiration that drives her when creating each of her looks. Diana was born is Russia and lives in Russia, St. Petersburg region.
Diana Ulanova studio is a privately owned atelier where, with the use of natural materials only – leather, suede, linen, silk, – the splendid tailor-made designs of impeccable quality come into existence. From concept to execution, everything is manufactured by hand, with close attention to detail.
As the source of the designs and inspiration comes from nature itself, the works are all about harmony: from lines to the choice of colours…
The studio’s primary focus is the production of unique pieces, to which there are no analogues in the modern market, released in a form of coherent editions, each being dedicated to a certain cross-cutting theme. Flora, Antique, Shell, Vintage… – all of these collections were created using the personal technology and expertise of the creator, Diana Ulanova, as well as her boundless fantasy and delicate sense of style.
For the moment clients can find and purchase bags of Diana Ulanova at the official online shop http://www.dianaulanovabags.com
Before end of the year 2016 we are programming to open Show room in Limassol, Cyprus.
How it started and when it did the project?
The ‘Carapace’ bag was the first bag that Diana made and it laid foundation to the ‘Carapace’ collection. It all started soon after her daughter was born… In that period Diana pursued a feeling of security and strength at the same time – these sensations found reflection in that very first collection. She made the bag for herself and by herself (just couldn’t find in stores what she had in mind!). Then showed it on the Internet – and virtually at once got a bundle of orders.
The work began: at first Diana sewed herself, but later rented premises, hired a team… and stared a business.
What was the inspiration?
Now, in the epoch of industrial design the prevailing number of items produced by global brands are aimed at the tasks of ergonomics and cost efficiency, which is probably why, gazing around, we see an environment deprived of individuality, emotions, spiritual meaning. I strive to make things that are emotional, complicated, living, with their vivid character. It is not occasionally that nature came as the main source of inspiration to me. The harmony of the forms and colours, plasticity and asymmetry of the lines – it all has already been created by nature, and my task is to see and transfer it to an object.
I read that Diana is originally from Cyprus is so?
No. Diana is from Russia.
We’d like to know something about the artist

When you decided to turn it into a project e-commerce?
2 years ago. We decided to make bags of Diana very expensive. Known and desired all other the world. Do you agree that they are pieces of art?
So they have to be treated like pieces of art!
The quality of leather, suede, level of work now became to the level of jewelry. You may see that bags of Diana Ulanova are done without any sutures lines. Some people trying to copy our bags. Impossible..
Our bags are in many countries of Europe, went to USA, Canada, Middle East… Everywhere.
I saw that you are also on etsy well as on other portals and marketplace …
Yes. We use etsy as well.
In Italy, where you can admire the creations?
Hopefully in future we will have shop(s) of Diana Ulanova.
What are the materials used?
Only natural material. Leather, suede, linen, silk. This is the only material that makes it possbile to create really plastic and sculptural bags… Employing the technologic background that exists in the leather goods industry, it was difficult for us to bring our creative ideas into existence, so, by trial and error, we continually work out and master our own unique technology.
Who designs and physically creates the masterpiece?
All designs made by Diana Ulanova herself. And she controls each step of creation. As well she approves the ready masterpiece.
Creation of our bags is very complicated process. Many people involved. Each step belongs to different professional.
The pieces are unique?
Each bag is unique. It is not possible to make an exact replica. Of cause there are some models we can make similar bags. But leather is an alive material. Each bag like a different person. Even twins have some different signs.
If I see a bag that I like I can request it or I’ll have a similar, but not identical?
Exactly! But you have to remember that color of leather is not a watercolor. We never can find color “exactly like… tree, sunset, sea.. etc.. etc…”. Color also depend on setting of your screen.
Can I choose the type of leather?
You can try. Tell us and we will say if it is possible to make chosen model with the type of leather you chose. Some models can be done only from soft leather, other only from leather of high density.
For example we do not suggest to make bags from the sued in case this bag will go the country with high humidity.
What kind of contact there with the artist?
We have 200 letters per day. Orders… Imagine if Diana will reply to all of them herself…
She will not have time to make bags
What do you think differentiates your product from others?
Bags of Diana Ulanova do not need to have huge labels. We are sure they can be recognized by design. They are unique.
I could see the beautiful bracelets and also very sexy colorful wallets and belts and wraparound, extremely creative, new accessories will be born?
