Pre-fall 2013/14

A LA RUSSE Anastasia Romantsova Pre-Fall 2013

The main character of the collection is Lara from Boris Pasternak’s Doctor Zhivago, adapted by Anastasia Romantsova, she is a light, snowy, and modern interpretation of Snow Maiden, wintry, exquisite, radiant, but also warm, tender, and sensual.

Her essence is best expressed in the collection by handmade, airy beauty of the Orenburg shawl, reminding frost patterns, always weightless and warm, so Russian warm and so European aristocratic.

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