Masha Reva

60_6

 

Masha Reva is a new up and coming Ukranian designer, who should be known by every self proclaimed fashionista. Main focus of her work is print. She got a lot of attention after her collaboration with SNDCT . The result of their teamwork were amazing sweatshirts, and as we all know sweatshirts have been the IT thing for the past couple of seasons.

Masha has caught the attention of the fashion world with her prints. Every designer has done prints but she made it her trademark. Prints by Masha are modern, bold and fresh. They look like Photoshop collages that are so popular on Tumblr.

This is the rising star in the fashion world, whose name you should remember. So get in line for that one of a kind sweatshirt that you will never take off .

She also makes dresses, trousers and other garments not just sweatshirts (but sweatshirts by Masha REVA are on top of my wish list).

Masha Yankovskaya

8175345190_cafc7a0303_z

Its hard to pin point Masha as just an illustrator, like most Russian woman she does not stop at one thing, she does it all. Besides being an amazing illustrator, fashion designer she is also a stylist and a watch and accessories editor and Esquire Russia. She is the definition of a  successful modern day woman.

Even though she has more then one talent I just want to focus on her illustrations, that’s how I found her in the first place. Now days there are so many illustrators, probably every second guy who is wearing Vans and has long hair and a  beard is one. Never the less Masha Yankovskaya stands out – her work can be related to the fashion illustration of early days of fashion magazines but with a more modern twist. She is also not afraid to show some vulgar “situations” in her work while still maintaining the elegance of a fashion illustration.

Masha also has a blog where you can check out some of her work no matter if its a illustration or a lookbook for her new collection.

Dima Hohlov

PG13

Russia has many  talented people and Dima Hohlov is one of them. He is quite known in the photography community in Russia but also outside his home country, which can be considered as a very high achievement.

He has worked with different publications such as Vogue Russia, Harper Bazaar UK,  Wonderland Magazine,  Interview Russia and Mr. Porter.  What is fascinating  about him is that he is not afraid to play around with his work. It could be said that his work is a mixture of artistic and commercial photography , therefore his work has the unique characteristic of appealing to a large audience while being different.

For more of his work click here.

Vilshenko

47608-800wDo  you ever get the urge to let your inner bohemian princess  run wild? Well apparently you’re not the only one. The Russian born Olga Vilshenko shares your bohemian spirit  and so she has created her clothing brand Vilshenko .

The brand was created in 2011 and interestingly enough its more popular in England than in Russia.

When describing the label as bohemian don’t just automatically think of long printed dresses and harem trousers. This designer has come up with the formula for fashion success: mix print and modern shapes and  add some embroidery – and VOILA! you have a successful luxury clothing brand.

Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine is a fan of this brand and who can blame her? Vilshenko is one of the most exciting ready to wear brands to come out of Russia in the past couple of years.

For more images and information check out her website http://www.vilshenko.com/

Gidropony

images (1)

Gidropony is a Russian band from Saranks. Its one of those underground bands that not a lot of people know about but who deserve to be known. Their music is a mix of Nintendo 80s video game music with a bit of punk and electro.  The band bears a close resemblance to  Crystals Castles with their Pacman like music but with a happier attitude. Frankly they sound very different from anything that some of you have ever heard, so just go wild and give them a listen.

Osome2some

article_image-image-article

The relatively new Russian brand osome2some was founded by the amazing  Anna Andrienko and Natalia Buzakova.

The two designers started off by selling their design at Portobello Market,  Bricklane and Spitafields Market in London, not the most typical starting point for a Russian clothing label.

Their designs are very different from anything else that has been produced by other Russian designers in recent years. Their clothes are very minimalistic but edgy at the same time. Osome2some created clothing items that are modern and could be seen on people from such fashion capitals like London and Berlin. This kind of style is not yet as popular in Russia as it is in London and of course Berlin. There for this brand is like a fresh breeze of air for the fashion industry in Russia.

At the moment, osome2some has two sibling lines Awesome by osome2some and  B.E.R.L.I.N. . The fist one is a more premium  line while the second one is a more affordable but a bit more exclusive. Osome2some will remain their casual line were the talented designers will produce the classic models of the brand in new and unexpected ways.

For more information and pictures check out their website.

Popovy Dolls

tumblr_mg0mvy3kfc1rrihkmo1_500

The two amazing twin sisters Ekaterina and Elena Popova are the artist behind the interesting concept of Popovy Dolls. The twin sisters are very keen about portrait dolls and fashion and when they combined these two passions the Popovy Dolls were created.

The dolls are very life like but not in the terms of looking human. They look like beautiful and majestic creatures  from Venus who came down to Earth to explore our world.

The sisters are responsible for creating the dolls and their clothes. Every collection has its own theme like spiders, Egypt , lingerie  and is very detailed. Every doll is so unique and so detailed, that they can not be mistaken for anything else but  a tiny, beautiful pieces of art.

If you are a grown up barbie doll lover, like me, then these are the perfect dolls for you. Just remember that these dolls are not for playing.
