Usually you don’t hear much about the fashion scene in Russia. But of course there are also creative designers and exciting labels there. At Instagram I found the young designer Luiza Alkhanashvili, whose collection really impressed me!
Classic suits in a new style
The Russian designer’s collection shows classic men’s fashion in a modern interpretation: shortened trousers with narrow legs, double-breasted jackets with short sleeves and belts worn over the blazers. In addition many straps, buckles and discreet details. Luiza dresses men in suits and overalls in soft colours and soft silhouettes. Her own feminine handwriting is always clearly visible. With her brand “Alkhanashvili” she wants to create unique and comfortable men’s clothing that tells stories about people and helps them to express their individuality. After graduating from Volgograd Technical College, Luiza worked for a wedding dress designer and introduced her first menswear collection in 2016. The young Russian is sure to make it far into the fashion world!
