Alena Akhmadullina has rethought her over-the-top cultured for Pre-Fall, all a approach down to her inspirations. Traditionally, a engineer looks to a Russian fairytale for ideas, though here she opted for a some-more Western story: The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. Despite a starting point, there was extremely reduction fur than common from Akhmadullina, only 3 sole minks.
The relations miss of fur was refreshing, generally as she’s attempting to serve indurate herself in a Western market. In addition, Akhmadullina seems to be requesting a some-more accurate concentration on her silhouettes. Many pieces took on a pointy ’80s form, finish with shoulder pads to stress an hourglass figure. A red blazer with a easily whittled a midsection was a standout. The retro design was a bit too verbatim with a rhinestone-dotted denim dress featuring costume-y, promenade sleeves, though elsewhere Akhamdullina worked her fairytale angle in simple, astonishing ways, such as by transforming a could-be geeky weave sweater with a shrill snowflake imitation around Lurex and a dark icy palette.
One thing to watch from Akhmadullina are her scrupulous bags. They came in red leather and gray velvet, along with a familiar finish bird button on a flap. Germophobes take note: Metal nails column adult a bag so a bottom won’t hold any surface.
