On the closing day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia Bezgraniz Couture together with students of the British Higher School of Art and Design showcased the collection for people with disabilities. Laboratory of the BSAD developed new functional solutions for designing comfortable and trendy clothes. Smart casual outfit feature balanced combinations of black, white, coffee, khaki, graphite, dark shades of green, red and dark-blue. Transformer models, outwear with pockets and sewn in backpacks, zippers that add mobility, pants for people in wheelchairs designed at workshop Covestrо, Bezgraniz Couture and FreshBlood — designers made an attempt to take into account all the specifics of their clients lifestyle. Some topical trends also found reflection in the collection — monochrome, sport-like details, asymmetric cuts.
Tender, practical and comfortable, all this can be attributed to collection from the brand CHASTO and designer Sveta Chaika. Neat lines, polished geometry of the shapes, natural fabrics — every single piece underlined natural beauty of a female. On the runway were pristine white, red and dark dresses along with combinations of white and scarlet red, white and black.
The show was followed by the presentation Kazakhstan Fashion Week presents. Brand Eliz showcased the collection Orchid — this delicate soft flower became the source of inspiration. Colour palette of the collection translates playful humour — violet and lilac, khaki, bits of golden and refreshing white. AIGUL KASSYMOVA demonstrated a line of peach and mint garments with gradation of grey and little drops of red accent. Abundance of flounces, accent on fragile shoulders, mixture of quality and individuality once again demonstrated the intellectual romance of the collection. Fashion show from SERGEY SHABUNIN was performed to the background of poem by Robert Rozhdestvensky Monologue of a Woman. Suits with lengthy shirts in unconventional colour combinations, bright prints, fur finishing and a share of affectation — this is exactly, according to designer, how a powerful but at the same time sensible woman looks like.
Name of the collection Golden Thread from LENA KARNAUHOVA brand entirely reflects a parade of showcased looks. Smooth, magically glittering garments are is if woven of gold — beautiful combination of yellow and pink, intertwist into each other, joining in the artistic duet, turned in dresses, outwear, skirts. Flowing fabrics, application of fur insets in frills and collar, collision of loose top and slim bottom — every look stuck in the memory. Special highlight was a sandy-beige line and scarlet red dress with low neck.
Silhouettes in the collection from KSENIASERAYA were inspired by retro-futurism — knitted suits with lengthy sleeves, sarafans on straps, semi-transparent coats-cloaks, diverse length dresses but primarily midi and a share of extra-terrestrial that found reflection in unusual sleeves, plastic gloves and unconventional textures. In the basics were the space colours — from silvery grey to dusty tints of pink with some drops of classic black and white.
Sharp collection from Dasha Gauser thematically was devoted to the round-the-world tour. Romantic style comes alongside with sport items, busts of travel girls host geographical travelling maps, while suitcases on wheels complete the look. Jumpsuits with geometrically cut flower, one shoulder water-paint blue dress, strapless dress that stunningly underlines collar bones — a girl from Dasha Gauser is beautiful always, everywhere and in every detail.
Collection from Alena Akhmadullina traditionally employed folklore stories and brand's typical shapes. Dresses and ensembles from the first block featured beige, lilac, turquoise and golden shades. One could trace brand's DNA — simple, comfortable and chic.
The second part of the fashion show was devoted to capsule collection Bluebird, Winter Bouquet and Empire designed for Faberlic by Alena Akhmadullina. Patchwork fur trims, complex embroideries in emerald green and golden appeal to the power and beauty of the imperial style. Intricate technique repeated in several garments — gradient arrangement, transitions in various shades, from light top to dark footwear and vice versa. Shoes and boots were also designed by Alena Akhmadullina. They featured embroidery and had familiar transparent heels. Evergreen like a pine tree, red like a fox's tale, grey like hare's fur — deep forest colours translate the fairytale feeling.
Collection from VIVA VOX could be described as intriguing and magnifying, with a share of aggression. Slim-waist two-piece suits, tightly buttoned-up shirts' collars — for females and jackets with cropped pants and trenches — for males. Designer experiments with volumes, textures and layers, playing with unconventional presentation. Principal colours of the collection — deep black, damp asphalt colour, white, yellow with gradient into lemon and coral red.
Exciting and sometimes provocative collection from BELLA POTEMKINA was last but not the least bright accord of the Fashion Week. Royal puff dresses came alongside with bodies and sport wear, while bright intentionally glamorous accessories completed the looks. Roses bloomed on the garments and liquid gold turned into geometric and fixed bottom of a dress.
The finale of the Fashion Week was collection from IGOR GULYAEV — a love story about the coulple, the two people who enjoy the feeling but no one else can, it is a mystery under lock and key. Unbelievably enlightened looks, delicate silk, hand-made wool and silk translate the feeling of intimacy and care. Outfits featured trendy A-silhouettes, those who evaluate street-style will certainly enjoy the accessories. Among those were futuristic knitted coats with buff sleeves, shawls, scarves and cable-knit headwear, backpacks, handbags and clutches with designer's sketches. Large details complimented with delicate patterns, prints and draping that is known as brand's DNA.
The presentation corner featured the new collection Russian Fairytale from the Hat's House Lilia Fisher. Designer was inspired by Russian folklore fairy-tales: hats were adorned by the feathers of Firebird, eye veils of mysterious princesses and exotic gems from the far lands.
