Friday Fun: Matrioshkas Haute Couture
May 18, 2012 14:04

Matrioshka by Versace

Fashion meets art in a project once curated by Alyona Doletskaya, the former Vogue Russia editor. A unique, if kitchy, attribute of Russian folk culture, matrioshkas (Russian dolls) never failed to inspire designers, whenever they contemplated the Russian "theme". Back in 2008, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Vogue in Russia, world's best and renowned designers were tasked with adding a touch of haute couture glamour to the famous doll. The leading fashion houses and designers took to work, including Burberry, Prada, Marni, Jitrois, Jil Sanders, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, and others. The result is a curious marriage of traditional shape and contemporary styling.
