Vika Gazinskaya’s Look Book for Spring Summer 2015 is showing off her inspirations, and this time it’s not a mood board teaser. The Russian it girl and fashion designer recently wrapped up from Paris Fashion Week and has chosen the perfect time to show off yet another anticipated collection. Each garment is unique in its own way, and if you’re curious to know what the theme of choice was, it’s of the east, think Turkey. The look book shows pieces that have asymmetrical shapes, along with Vika’s personal touches of being hand painted. The other unique things to see are the knotted turbans, the translucent robe, and yes even a pajama suit.
Imagine yourself caught in an unexpected moment, when emotions take over; taking you through highs and lows; Emotions are plastered for all to see on our faces, and heard within our voices. Pitchouguina is a brand based on emotions, specifically awkward behaviours, and dreamy attitudes. For Autumn-Winter 2014/15 Pitchouguina’s collection revolved around naked tree’s, and foot prints left in the snow resembling a melancholic mood.
The world is a lust driven place,- sex, passion love- it’s ingrained in us all; These thoughts carry us away, and in the world of contemporary art- modern attitudes of acceptance transpire into one man, or woman’s inspiration. The art duo Alexander Vinogradov and Vladimir Dubossarsky are Russian contemporary artists who have been collaborating since 1994, their known for their pop art, and focus on socialist realism.
It’s the independent, home grown Russian clothing label (straight out of Moscow) that’s famous for photographing models with disheveled appearances; bring on that morning after-sex-
ruined tousled hair, gobs of mascara running down your cheeks, and the marks of your previous nights uninhibited endeavours. Moscow’s Walk of Shame’s avant-garde style speaks for itself- inspired by the girl who lives for the night, who ends up spending the morning after hobbling along the streets on a broken heel, while still wearing last nights outfit (that’s just not a pretty picture). If you’re that girl well you’re the reason Walk Of Shame was created, plus you might even be saving your ass face in one of their designs.
I hope you’re ready for the arrival of the fall and winter 2014/15 pre collections!! Today’s pre collection up for your viewing pleasure is from Alexander Terekhov. Terekhov’s ready to wear collection for the next fall and winter season sticks to luxe minimalism. In other words the collection is very simple; some of the dresses take to bright colours, while others are on the play it safe neutral side.
