glo brand, supporting Global Talents.
This menswear brand was founded in 2014, and has since carved out its place in the Russian fashion market with its use of minimalist design and expert tailoring. Functional yet romantic, their designs often feature a personal touch from their team.
This collection was no different, with the brand presenting a masculine and elegant number of looks with a strong resemblance to European mens fashion of the 70’s.
MAD DAISY MOSCOW
The story behind the label, founded by Margarita Fedoseeva, goes back to 2017.
At first, it was a pure footwear label, inspired by the «mismatched shoes» trend. Over time, the brand has decided to focus on a wider product line adding apparel and accessories for women. Her new collection was created in collaborative partnership with the State Tretyakov Gallery to support women living with alopecia.
EXPATS COLLECTIVE (USA – Russia)
EXPATS COLLECTIVE is an international collaborative effort between publisher and fashion editor Stephan Rabimov and designers Vasily Vein, Liliana Bahor, Ella Shadrunova.
The brand is the epitome of slow fashion, with every garment created uniquely.
Their debut collection, Spring/Summer 2020, is inspired by Polenitsa, the Romanov dynasty and the October Communist Revolution.
PRESENTATION | OTOCYON
Lesya Rusakovich, the brand designer, offers to consider clothing as an object that should be contemplated and felt. Somber color pallet and soft silhouettes contributed into the necessary spirit.
ZA_ZA is the brainchild of Alexandra Koryakina, notoriously avant-garde, stating its mission as “bringing something unexplainable to an explained world”.
A collection straight out of a Francis Bacon masterpiece and a perfect one for a dark and cold Winter. The show was participated by models of elegant age.
Inspired by industrial and architecture design, Red September was founded by designer Olga Vasyukova. The designer has a diploma from the Fashion Design department at Polimoda and her first showcases in Florence. She works on the concept behind each collection by focusing on a mix of forgotten aesthetics and a single theme in modern art.
Today Red September gave us a practical and fresh collection of urban streetwear – mostly bomber jackets, tees, sweatpants and hoodies.
Pirosmani by Jenia Malygina is a well-known brand from St. Petersburg. Their concept was always envoking dark, romantic influences, infusing them with goth elements.
You can safely say that after this show, Malygina can easily be listed in the same sentence as Rick Owens and Rei Kawakubo when we talk about the masters of dark, gothic, dramatic and unique garments.
