Bodywarmer AW13

I’m really glad to introduce you the work of the very talented Ksenia Schnaider, for Autumn/Winter 2013 under the name “Bodywarmer”. An that name becomes inspired by the classic bodywarmer, a quilted garment which was incredibly popular in the Soviet Union due to its affordability, utility and versatility.
Despite the affordability of the bodywarmer during its boom in the Soviet Union, Ksenia has, as with all of her work given classic silhouettes and traditional techniques a luxurious twist with her continued use of leather, velvet and silk throughout the collection.

“Bodywarmer” is a collection very traditional but kinda revindicative at the same time, offering us a mix of concepts pretty interesting, lets take a look!

Estoy encantada de presentaros el trabajo de la muy talentosa Ksenia Schnaider, para otoño / invierno 2013 bajo el nombre de “Bodywarmer”. Un nombre que se inspira en el clásico Bodywarmer, una prenda acolchada que era muy popular en la Unión Soviética debido a su accesibilidad, utilidad y versatilidad.
A pesar de ser una prenda asequible durante su auge en la Unión Soviética, Ksenia, al igual que todas sus obras de siluetas clásicas y de técnicas tradicionales a dotado de un toque de lujo con su continuo uso de cuero, terciopelo y seda a toda la colección. “Bodywarmer” es una colección muy tradicional, pero al mismo tiempo un poco reivindicativa, ofreciéndonos una mezcla de conceptos muy interesantes.
