On October 24, the 38th Moscow Fashion Week started at Gostiny Dvor. Made in Russia”organized by the Haute Couture and Pret-a-Porter Association with the support of MINPROMTORG of Russia.
Fashion is a phenomenon that organically combines tradition and a progressive approach. This topical mix allowed to create a unique atmosphere on the podium, in the welcome zone and on the backstage of the 38th season of HMM.
The Fashion Week in Moscow was opened by the Valentin Yudashkin prêt-à-porter spring-summer 2018 show.
Couturier Valentin Yudashkin turns to the theme of avant-garde art, more precisely, suprematism (from Latin supremus - the highest). Combinations of multi-colored planes and shapes - a straight line, rectangle, square and circle, as well as a combination of geometric shapes of different colors and sizes that form Suprematist compositions - all this is reflected in the collection. Dresses, blouses, skirts and accessories are decorated with prints and appliqués in the form of human figures, as if descended from the canvases of the avant-garde artist Kazimir Malevich.
In the future spring-summer season, the designer proposes to combine summer raincoats and maxi-length coats made of linen, raincoat fabric, denim cotton, or elongated bomber jackets and cropped double and single-breasted straight-cut jackets made of cotton, linen matting, cotton satin with bulky trousers -palazzo with a high waist. The model range of the collection also includes voluminous skirts-shorts, elongated dress-shirts, dresses with flared skirts, sundresses, short and long overalls with an open back made of cambric, cotton, linen, silk and chiffon. In the evening looks, much attention is paid to exquisite and feminine dresses made of organza, tulle, satin and silk.
The game of asymmetry adds geometry and emphasizes the suprematist character of the collection. Some models are supplemented with draperies embroidered with beads, bugles and beads, which creates the effect of volumetric textured embroidery. In combination with rich colors - red, yellow, blue, green and white, unique images are born. They are complemented by spectacular accessories that continue the general theme of the collection: bags with a suprematist print, backpacks with graphic applications, slippers and mules made of leather and suede with a colored stripe and sunglasses with rounded degraded frames.
Valentin Yudashkin presented the image of a supremus woman, full of grace and sophistication. The image of a perfect woman, the highest degree of elegance and sense of style.
A surprise for the guests of the show was the demonstration of several models of children's clothing, announcing the launch of the Valentin Yudashkin for Kids line.
