A LA RUSSE Fall-Winter/2012-13 Collection
The Tsar Hunt collection, conceived as a colorful and imaginative story, mixing the supposedly distant elements of Baroque art and Paisley patterns, antique jewellery and romantic roses.
For the main print, I mixed together several traditional elements of hunting scenes in Baroque-era paintings and Paisley design from the later periods of European art. When put together, they create the feeling of chaos and the dynamics of hunt.
Fragments of old Baroque painting "Diana's hunting" and old tapestries were used along with the traditional Paisley design.
The antique jewellery of several prints seem to act independently, but its major role is to accompany the romantic roses.
