Vladimir Karaleev "RE-FORMATION" SS2012

fashionarchitect.net Vladimir Karaleev RE-FORMATION at 4FASHIONSHAKE IV
Berlin-based fashion designer Vladimir Karaleev showed his SS2012 collection RE-FORMATION at the 4FASHIONSHAKE IV by OZON that took place on Wednesday, Novenber 23rd at Pallas Theatre.

Athens String Quartet opened the show.


A while after, a semi-diaphanous fabric screen came down on the stage and divided it in half. fashionarchitect.net Athens String Quartret at 4FASHIONSHAKE IV
From being the main attraction, their performance bacame the perfect acoustic and visual background for Vladimir Karaleev's work.

As you will see yourselves, I had a hard time editing down the outfits, as I really liked them all and I considered them a solid body of work, so prepare for some serious scrolling.

It was a great honour that OZON had Vadimir Karaleev come all the way from Berlin to organise his show and greet the audience.

Being the last show of the night, the closing moment involved everyone who participated - musicians, performers and models - sharing the stage for one last time.

Rainy days

Wellies are magical on days like that, nothing gets through them and tootsies stay dry.

Got mine courtesy of Blanco (here is the link for them on the online shop, sadly not shipping to Greece yet) but if there were more colours available, I'd buy them all too!
