MARCOBOLOGNA
FALL-WINTER 2014/15

After working with Dolce&Gabbana, Versace and Strenesse young designers Marco Giuliano and Nicolo Bologna got the invitation to participate in VOGUE TALENTS fashion show in September 2011. Bright innovative collections with unusual prints reflect designers' extraordinary approach to the definition of beauty and aesthetic perfection. Their collections feature designers' fashion taste along with the current trends. MARCOBOLOGNA brand is recognized for individual character, elegant silhouettes and extraordinary designer approach.
The Fall-Winter collection by MARCOBOLOGNA brand was inspired by no less than Japan and intricate contradictions that one can see in its cosmopolitan capital. Synthesis of classic and contemporary trends: from traditional lilac on jacquard and chiffon belts to pixel prints and colour-blocking.
The antagonism is also highlighted in silhouettes: oversize coats and dresses with sleeves that remind kimono interchange with asymmetric little dresses and pencil skirts with high waist.
Bright pumps and large bracelets with coloured gems set the style for accessories.

FASHION HOUSE IGOR GULYAEV
ON THE EDGE FALL-WINTER 2014/15

'God save you from living in the times of changes.' We take for granted this ancient wise thought from the East. However, in this new season Igor Gulyaev bets he can argue with that common judgement.
Changes are always the opportunity to discover something new and unknown. The thirst for knowledge led people to major discoveries.
Live on the edge - means to the possible great extent feel the pulse of life, to maintain the edge of feeling, to look at the world with the fresh, unblurred eyes, to leave out the clichés, ordinary plans and find the guts to achieve the most adventurous dreams. 
New collection from one of the most demanded designers in Russia is the exact manifestation of this idea.
The look which Igor Gulyaev designs in Season Fall-Winter 2014-2015 included the laconic Russian pre-revolution style and natural complexity of the European modern.
'Slim-waisted silhouette and exquisite shapes - such is the formula of the true feminine attractions,' continues to affirm the designer, another time addressing the distinguished smooth fur. Modesty of this material is compensated by the richness of shape and colour.
The collection is full of lush shades: emerald, indigo, Bordeaux, turquoise, aquamarine, this rich range of colours directly refers to the precious stones that do sparkle with different edges. This time Igor Gulyaev makes a statement that his attitude to a woman is just like to a jewel.
But at the same time one can feel the strong personality in the character of his collection. She stands firm on the ground. She knows her own value, she is ready to conquer the world, and can capture more than one man's heart.
Accessories and details shimmering with steel glitter add something special to her look and bring new implications.
Dresses, coats, fur pieces, blouses and skirts, that make the basics of the collection, all together create the image on the edge of classics and avant-garde. As the designer admits himself, his design is based on emotions in the first place.
'I try to put not only soul but my thoughts and ideas in everything I do. Designing collection On the Edge I was thinking about human relations. Their eternal development is possible only at a condition of constant renovation. Only those couples have the chance for long years together who with the time discover new edges in each other. It is in our nature: we are longing for something new. From the flow of new, time chooses something to become eternal, something that goes beyond our mundane life, something that turns into art.'
