Wave after wave
Alena Akhmadullina is one of Russia’s rising fashion designers. Inspired by ancient folk tales, she creates pieces that add a hint of dreams and fairy tales to everyday life.
Her Resort 16 collection is inspired by the tale about Sadko, an explorer whose musical gift won the heart of the Sea King. The ocean is present in each piece of the collection, through colour and material. Deep blues and foamy green are topped with pale pink and bright white. Hints of sea foam are made out of cashmere and fur, quilted coats and stitched denim evoke the movement of waves and Hokusai-like rip curls are used in print.
