Finally I can share my thoughts and emotions from the shows, which I saw in March during MBFW Russia. Honestly, it wasn’t a tough season for me, because I’ve planned what shows to visit beforehand according to my preferences and style. So, we visited two fashion shows. Today I’d like to tell you about our first one. The first show was by Ksenia Knyazeva. Do you,guys, remember my last Fashion Diary where I wrote that I want ALL from her SS’16 collection ? Frankly speaking,I got that feeling again while I was sitting at the show and watching models going along the runaway. The collection «Bahama Queen» is a synthesis of history, art and fashion. The designer was inspired by Gertrude Lythgoe the queen of bootleggers. During Dry Law in USA she hid the alcohol everywhere she can: in shoes, stockings and boots because the police had no rights to frisk the women. Gertrude Lythgoe drove the tucks full of alcohol with men and did risk operations in the gangster world. Every woman would like to feel, at least once, herself independent from money and men, to feel that she can take risks,win and rule this world. This idea lays in the collection, which risky, chic and gangster spirit you can feel by wearing new pieces by Ksenia Knyazeva.
On the runway I saw a rich and marvellous colors: emerald green, the color of a sea wave, burgundy, gold and deep black. Ksenia had amazingly matched bohemian chic and modern vibes what allows us to wear every piece of her collection both during the day & night. What’s more, there were lots of different length dresses, lace blouses, shiffon clothes and pleated skirts. Have you already noticed interesting prints as irises and dragonflies? It’s not accidentally. The fact is that gangsters called Gertrude this way: » Mysterious like an iris, elusive like a dragonfly». That’s why, everything in «Bahama Queen» collection has it’s own story and destination.
