Below is a preview of their Fall/Winter 2015-16 Fashion and Color Trends, a comprehensive guide  subdivided into four key themes


Rigorous luxury, strictness and grandeur. Orthodox Russia fervently moving ahead on the trail of a two-fold aesthetic nomenclature without manifest contradictions. A elaborate intellectual homage which poverfully and tamelessly shows a taste for unworldly luxury without nostaldia in its blase' composure.


African feeling. Away from any ethnic side, moving lightly closer to wild and ancestral rituals of an archetypal aesthetics. Visual medium of tactile sensations becoming chromatic and material inspiration. Symbolic idols living again in firmly strained, formal constructions.


Essentially innovative stylistic rarefaction. Proposal with a dry and absolute narrative texture saturated with a wave of intimism which transcends figurative reality to a dimension of colors and lines purified by comforting material structures.


The right amount of color. Flamboyant, dreamy and ironical full-color scenery. A code expressing a snobbish attitude which attributes abundant eccentricity to new luxury. In a sequence of modulated and variable painted backgrounds.
