attitude becomes form

The latest collection by young Russian designer
Vika Gazinskaya left me speechless: her knack
for creating timeless pieces through a distinct
sartorial attitude made of purity of forms and
flawless workmanship reaches new heights.

The Moscow-born talent made a name for herself
since her debut collection and she briskly became
a designer to watch thanks to expansive shapes
and naive prints. Gazinskaya's RTW spring-summer
2014 collection is a true celebration of modern
femininity, plenty of suggestions and gorgeous
details where silhouettes (subtly hinting at those
of the 1960s) and textures walk hand in hand.

Her signature dainty, unsophisticated prints, this
time trees and pink flamingoes, are juxtaposed
with a great work on shapes, volumes and textures
in form-fitting dresses with amazing cuts and tucks.
The collection's lookbook shows breathtaking details
of one-piece dresses (the one in silver brocade is
quite dazzling), pencil skirts and striped cotton pants
worn under sublime halter tops and suspended blouses.

I simply adore Vika's superb sense of style which is
hidden behind an apparent simplicity and I guess
she's not bragging about when she declares that
her ”collections represent the quintessence of
everything beautiful the world has to offer”
 on the Official Vika Gazinskaya fb page. 
She innovates by broadening the existing.
