Pre-Fall 2015-2016 Collection

BALANCHINE’S BALLET IN GRAPHIC

The main idea of the pre-collection is combination of imperial luxury with artistic asceticism, a reference to George Balanchine’s masterpiece “Jewels”, which glorifies the beauty of women, shown by glitter of precious stones and perfect ballet technique.

Eclectic prints, focused on themes of abstraction and constructivism, crystal shapes, geometric patterns, rich colors and ornaments. Flexible panthers, antique silhouettes and brozed nude bodies symbolize union of two different forces, male and female beginning. Lizard recalls the second image of the Mistress, snake – the Great Runner – gold treasurer, and Fern – the eternal, inaccessible and beautiful blossoming flower.
