Ksenia Schnaider New Campaign F/W 15-16

_MG_6560

The F/W 15-16 collection of Ksenia Schnaider Studio refers to the combined image of a typical Ukrainian “Zarobitchanin” – a person who makes hard labor job to feed his family. The road service works, building, cleaning, farming and other similar occupations dictated styles and colors of the collection.

F/W 15-16 collection is re-thinking uniform and worker’s clothes. The designers Ksenia and Anton find inspiration in the utilitarian function of clothing, the balance between functionality and beauty, the accessibility of modern technologies and Slavic traditions.

Ksenia Schnaider: “We are creating a cosmopolitan clothes, understandable worldwide, but in our designs we always mix modern Ukrainian cliché with a hint of orthodox nostalgia. I live and work in Ukraine and I can not pretend that I don’t notice what surrounds me. Our usual environment I call the “ugly beauty”, which I try to transform into “flawless beauty” in our collections.”

The main color of the collection is orange. Besides the liner and inner decoration, this color is used in prints (in this way traditional Ukrainian red roses and poppies became a pixelated in orange). Glitch print has an allegorical message that Anton Schnaider developed referring to the distortion of information in today’s media, social networks, and electronic devices. Digital prints on silk are the view from the contemporary time into the archaic era.

In the designs, many of the pieces were made using the reception of quilting fabrics, which moved from its usual lining into the front of the product. Basic materials of the collection – silk and cotton. Coat materials are from Italian brand – Alcantara.
The global luxury brand renowned for its unique and proprietary technology guarantee of pure Italian quality and excellence, chosen Ksenia Schnaider for a collaboration this season.

The collection includes ultra-durable coats and jackets, lightweight suede dresses, gowns, pleated skirts and trench coats.
