Korsun's new collection brings volume, colour, and proportion in into focus. The brand's designers imagined they were abstract artists working with clay or on canvas, and then transferred their ideas to fabric, in shades and silhouettes. The collection's heroine appears sincere, cheerful and a little daring without the slightest hint of artifice.
"We tried to go beyond the classic fashion clichés and combine incongruous concepts using non-standard solutions," Korsun' creative director Sergei Surkov attests. "Tropical forests of the former Spanish colonies became our main inspiration. The delicate jacquard weaving reminds us of the eternal secrets hidden in the jungle. There is something innate behind these patterns, a reflection of a lively mind."
Items are cut out and tailored a with meticulousness that is inherently haute couture. Only natural materials are used: the finest wool--cashmere, and the softest silk. Accentuated in each look are the texture of the fabric, and the depth of colour, hidden in rich shades of blue, green and orange.
Jacquard parkas and light overcoats are key pieces of the collection. All outerwear is designed to be loose-fittingso as not to hinder movement and to emphasise the freedom-loving, natural Korsun heroine.
The two-sided kimono, decorated with patterned embroidery, deserves special attention. It is designed to be worn with brightly coloured long trousers. Also to be found in the collection: long skirts made of cascading silk, cropped tops embroidered with large beads, bell-bottomed high-waist pants, and delicate silk dresses.
All in all, the collection is designed for strong, vibrant and seductive women, who are not shy about taking on the world.
Korsun's designers aim to convey the influence of Spanish culture that is integral for the brand, while using non-conventional methods. In the Autumn-Winter 2016/17 Collection, this aim was reflected in deliberately simple forms and A-shaped silhouettes, strengthened with bright details and abundant embroideries.
