Yegor Zaitsev – inspirational at Russian Fashion Week – Spring/Summer 2011


I’m usually not presenting catwalks and designers, but sometimes, when something is getting my attention, I disobey my own rule; today is the case with the Russian designer Yegor Zaitsev (the son of the Russian fashion guru “Slava” Zaitsev). First of all, I was surprised by his fall/winter collection yet I said it’s just a line, not his general view, but now, with the new spring/summer défilé I realized what a talented brain he has. The soft translation between the fall gray, black and green “monsters” to the solar beauty of the spring/summer  (collection presented at RFW 2011) it’s a certified prove of his talent. Now, let’s take a look at the “bugs” and “dangerous aliens” from the fall/winter collection:

And let’s see the positive cheerful spring/summer models. It’s a celebration of renaissance keeping the same straight and angular shapes, seams to me like a heavy metal concert in a blooming garden. Beautiful, yet disturbing:

  1. O daaaa!
    Impresionanta colectie. Foarte expresiva, structurala (tridimensionalitatea tinutelor este pe cat de geniala, pe atat de socanta, dar asta e si ideea), destul de unitara, cu ritmuri de culori si forme. Se vede, ca toate aceste tinute au in spate tipare foarte complexe, solutii tehnice ingenioase si au necesitat foarte multa munca (finetea detaliilor este evidenta). Singurul lucru, care pe mine personal ma deranjeaza, este faptul, ca s-a mers prea mult pe simetrie (la un moment dat devine obositoare). Si ah da, poate, as schimba si cateva manechine (stiu eu, cum e cu punerea tinutei in valoare, dar in unele cazuri s-a exagerat cam mult, dupa parerea mea (unele fete au fost MULT prea sterse sau/si prea…copile, iar aceasta colectie cere sa fie purtata de o femeie puternica, sigura pe ea, cu atitudine, cum e manechinul din primele poze de exemplu)).

    In concluzie, Zaitsev e suficient de bun si nebun pentru mine…ca si Vitas, de altfel. Desi limbajul lor e diferit (fashion vs. muzica, insa ambele fac parte din lumea artei), mesajul transmis, in esenta, este acelasi.
