March 31, 2014 11:52


The first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia was opened by Slava Zaitsev's show.

Besides, after that there were presentations of fall-winter 2014-2015 collections by the regular participants of MBFW Russia: Yegor Zaitsev, Tegin, Akhmadullina, ESTER ABNER, Vassa & Co, ZARINA and Renata Litvinova “For those who care”, “Poetry of Fashion” from Marina Rimer, as well as demonstrations of Ko.Jewelry and Arctic Explorer creations.

Slava Zaitsev's show has traditionally turned from a simple demonstration of garment into a breathtaking fashion-show. From the moment of its creation, the brand of SLAVA ZAITSEV has been famous for its commitment to classical traditions: fitted silhouette, natural forms.

Models in dresses and coats of pastel colour in a new look style complemented with wide-flat hats creating the image of the 50-s appeared on the catwalk first. Staying true to himself, the designer has added to the collection several elements a la russe: fur inserts, boas, collars of foxes and, of course, bright colors.

Coats of thick fabric with abundant decor and dresses in oriental style were supplemented with bowler fitting the costume colour, umbrellas and massive necklaces of pearls.
Special attention should be paid to an impressive variety of prints that brightly decorate all the collection of the designer. This is a traditional check on men's suits and coats, black and white "hound's tooth" and "Turkish paisley." Bright accent of the show was  made by the performance of dandy-dancers under cover version of the famous Escala “Feeling Good”.

One part of the collection was inspired by the eastern culture that explains the appearance of warm colours and the "carpet" ornaments.
However, the key model of the show that deserves special notice was a wedding dress with a long train, embroidered with beads and sequins supplemented with a really chic looking kokoshnik.
Floral prints, long flowing dresses made of silk and velvet gloves of costume colour - one of the final chords was the performance of models, associated with the images of birds from paradise.

Yegor Zaitsev
Maybe one of the most avance-guard designers in Russian fashion world this time presented quite a reserved collection. The dresses of a strict silhouette of thick cloth, checked print, jackets with “sharp” shoulders, leather coats of trendy pistachio and pink shades – conservative models were added by asymmetrical collars leading sometimes up to the waist. Nevertheless, the designer couldn’t refuse a usual form of work and presented three looks with extraordinary silhuettes – «horns» on the hood of the overalls, architectural design, double-breasted vests with golden buttons and lots of layers – that’s the author’s style of Yegor Zaitsev that is easy to recognize. In the end of the show instead of a habitual defile the models literally ran to the end of the catwalk flirting with the photographs and making selfies. They all were wearing theatrical make-up – white face with the main accents on the eyes, chicks and lips.
Author’s collection “For those who care” of the brand Zarina together with Reanata Litvinova
Author’s collection “For those who care” of the brand Zarina together with Reanata Litvinova appeared to be in their style. Elegant silhuettes, graceful dresses – the theme of feminity became the collection’s inspiration The show presented long silk dresses, strict straight skirts accompanied by suits and silk blouses. Velvet and paiet that give each look the air of the 20s, - the main basis of the collection was a luxurious facture. As for the colorful details these were the pearl lines accompanying practically every look as well as glossy red lips of the models. Colorful spectrum included deep grey, sapphire, as well as ultramarine and creamy shades. One of the key elements were the handfuls of shining snow that models used to throw into the air during the defile. Partially the income of the collection sales will be sent on the realization of the charity program «ZARINA for those who care» – a united project ZARINA and «RAUL» fund.

Futuristic gothic with ethnical implication by Tegin
The designer characterizes her style as futuristic gothic with ethnical implication. In collection fall-winter/2014-2014 there were presented intellectual reserved model and the black-and-white spectrum was the leading one, as usual. Monochromatic colors accompanied the dusty-pink and blue models with galagraphical shade. Surprising details, that enlivened the philosophical collection, became the plumes of marabou, lace inserts and the skirts with a long cut behind. 
Svetlana Tegin draw her inspiration in 30s and in mute cinema. Avance-guard esthetics, minimalistic view on fashion trends – it all found the reflection in fall-winter collection of the designer. It’s worth mentioning as well the pink light on the catwalk, beauty-looks with smoky eyes and huge false lashes and sophisticated hair constructions that created an atmosphere of mystery.

Fairytale «Canterville ghost» by Alena Akhmadullina
Collection fall-winter/2014-2015 was inspired by the fairy-tale of an English writer Oscar Wilde “Canterville ghost”. Notwithstanding the fact that collection appeared to be very femine the designer took a rood cut as a basis that is typical for the men’s wardrobe: big lapels, the elements of English costume. It didn’t go without traditional for women’s dresses with author’s prints. If you look closer than you’ll see the prints reminding of the details of an old castle and drawn lace, ribbons and boutons. On the catwalk there were as well models of silver leather and fur, designed by mosaic technology (the different parts of fur are combined together in different variations). One of the main elements was the fur-coat “sky” that contained the images of the celestial bodies the cut of which thanks to a special manner of design reminded the castle’s wall made of wooden panels. The main accents accompanying all the collection’s looks were the clutches of colored leather with a side handle.

Fashion-party by Ester Abner
The show of ESTER ABNER reminded a party, that was accompanied by a majority of paiettes but as well a joyful track Bassement Jaxx. The main symbol of the collection is 8-cornered star, bright, luring with its inaccessibility. The main character of ESTER ABNER is like that star – shining, unique and free. That’s why the designer used not just the colorful spectrum, the shining decoration but the transparent elements, streaming skirts of the dress with geometrical prints. It didn’t come without new-look, romantic volume dresses, bustier and fur manteaux. The reflection of a male and a female found itself in strict costumes that were somehow softened just by the colors – emerald and red. Airy cloths – chiffon and organza – were added by more «acceptable» material – jersey.
Minimalism and traditions by Vassa&Co
New York school follower of minimalism and the “heir” of Russian traditions of costructivism, Vassa&Co in collection fall-winter/2014-2015 follows traditional designer’s cut accompanied by surprising details like asymmetrical as if torn collars and sleeves. The whole collection is based on duality and contrasts: ascetical forms matching the deep notches that gives the look sexuality; the coat, one part of each is made of black leather and the other from woolen cloth; the dress without one sleeve. The designer is not fond of prints, that are so popular this season. All models are made in monochrome spectrum: red, deep-blue, grey – nothing too much. As for the accessories, there were wide silver braslets that the models would wear as well on the wrists and on the forearm. Vassa&Co’s aim to make the avance-guard stylistics of new time has led to a collection far from being ordinary, which aggressive sexuality was a bit softened by strict dresses with volume sleeves.
«Fashion poetry» by Marina Rimer
The main peculiarity of the show closing the first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia, became the change of a traditional soundtrack into a poetry declaration. Accompanied by the rhymes of famous russian poets there appeared the models in light lingerie dresses, that during the show were changed by more official variants. Brocade coats came together with chiffon skirts with flowers. The midi-skirts in a combination with a jerkin and fuchsia-colored shoes are universal everyday variants experiments that equalized somehow the designer’s experiments like transparent blouses or golden elements. The dresses with a deep round cut on the back and the baby-doll models are worth paying attention.
