Russian designer Olya Glagoleva focuses on exquisitely made eco-fashion. Olya’s vibe is eccentric and artsy with the paint-splattered appeal of a modern art museum. Her newest collection GO, features chic and comfortable designs with artistic collaboration with Lisa Smirnova. Smirnova’s eclectic handmade decorations include embroidered colorful animals that appear to have jumped straight out of a child’s sketchbook. Olya’s clean-cut designs and classic shapes turn into a canvas for one of a kind wearable art. Having lived between Russia, the UK and Indonesia, her designs are heavily influenced by her broad background. Painstaking effort and over 100 hours of labor go into each individual piece. The result is a collection with modern sensibility, mod appeal and chic, long lines.
