BASIC: What will clothes be like in the future?

I don’t think we can expect a revolution in fashion in the future. I guess the tendency of simple and functional clothes will continue. It will probably be more about new materials like“smart fabrics” and technologies of their production. Sustainable and eco fashion will be preferable.

BASIC: What piece is most emblematic of your current collection and why?

The dark blue short dress. It’s dramatic and expresses the full concept of thecollection.

BASIC: Dream client? And why?

Tilda Swinton is my ideal woman. Her cold and elegant beauty is so extraterrestrial. She is chic, but not flashy, a bit aristocratic. Whatever she wears, she looks powerful and self-confident.

BASIC: Tell us about a piece that has been designed in your dreams but still isn’t a reality.

It’s not about only one piece, but an entire collection I saw it once in my dream. Leather and knitted dresses combined with tight over-the-knee boots. The inspiration for the collection came from the Elizabeth virgin queen époque.

BASIC: If there were a soundtrack to your designs, what song would you choose?

“Requiem for a Dream” composed by Clint Mansell.

BASIC: What historical or vintage clothing trend do you wish would make a comeback?

A-line skirt of 40’s fashion. I adore this age of fashion
