It has just ended, last October 20, the Aurora Fashion Week Russia 2012 (October 15 - 20), one of the most interesting events in the busy schedule of international fashion weeks. Come in its sixth edition, the event hosted, from the beginning, the biggest names of fashion scene like Custo Barcelona, Thom Browne, Costume National, David Koma and, just during this fashion week, Alessandro Dell'Acqua who presented here his menswear collection. But the main goal of this event is to promote and support the young and talented emerging russian designers.
Interspresed by other interesting musical and artistic events, this year the AFWR has seen on catwalk some of the biggest name of russian fashion scene like Igor Gulyaev, Leonid Alexeev and other ones, who presented their collections for the S/S 2013. Among the several collections presented, these are, in my opinion, the best ones.
ADDY VAN KROMMENACKER
This is one of my favourite shows of AFWR. This collection is so delicate and soft, elegant and classy. The clothes, realized in soft chiffon and organza, based on pallet of neutral colors like beige and pink, caress the gently the body, giving a grace and sophisticated look.
Inspired by urban style, this collection is easy and pretty. Blazers, shirts and shorts are the highlights. Comfortable and practical, is perfect for the young women who face the urban jungle with style and confidence.
COMMES DES GARCON (JAPAN)
The collection reflects perfectly the style of the brand. Oversized shapes, the asymmetrical lenghts and the floral print, give to it a girlish allure making it so nice to watch.
This is my favourite show of the AFWR. The collection is so lovely: ladylike, delicate and sophisticated. It also is very close to my personal style. I adore the use of chiffon and silk, they wrap the body as a soft caress.
The s/s collection by Leonid Alexeev is very nice. Cocoon and little oversize shapes signed the body giving a lively touch to the complex.
