Fall-winter 2013/14

A LA RUSSE Anastasia Romantsova Fall 2013

The main character – is a fairy aristocratic lady.

“This time we decided to adapt Lara from Boris Pasternak’s Doctor Zhivago and
present her as a light, snowy, and modern interpretation of Snow Maiden – Russianfairy-tale character – wintry, exquisite, radiant, but also warm, tender, and sensual”- says Anastasia Romantsova, the creator of the brand.

Her essence is best expressed in the collection by hand-made, airy beauty of the Orenburg shawl, reminding frost patterns, always weightless and warm.

The mood is of happy pre-emigrant Russia and a winter frosty-sunny-warm day.

The prints of the collection are as always symbolic:

Unicorn – very Russian, but at the same time European symbol,
Roses are covered with ice, thus it protects and preserves their ideal beauty,
The flower, the brand’s symbol, here turns into a transparent absolute beauty of a snow-flake.
