Lifestyle of a Postapocalyptic Urban Peasant

LOOKNOVEL

DETAILS

The focal point of the silhouettes are the neck, sternum and arms, with very high, tight necklines and collars, sloping shoulders (achieved through raglan sleeves) and variations of volume in the sleeves. The neck is an erotic and feminine part of the female body, without being overtly sexy, and emphasizing it lends elegance to a look, while also looking slightly severe and protective. The lower half of the silhouettes are quite voluminous, referencing the general shape of the russian sarafan.

DETAILS

Beautifully detailed plastic fishing baits by the company Rebel Lures serve as zipper pulls, while their vintage packaging served as an inspiration for prints. Elastic cords in tulle casings add an element of sports- and casual-wear to the high, gathered necklines and collars (a reference to historical Russian clothing), which is juxtaposed by the tortoiseshell cord locks - a typically sportswear notion made from an atypical material.
