The young Moscow-based brand presents its third 50s inspired collection
- Text by Kristina Voytovich
With its new Fall 2012 collection, the Moscow-based brand BOHEMIQUE brings back into the 21st century the magnificent 1950s - the heyday of feminity, Hollywood glamour, great artists and their muses. The Russian designer duo doesn't try to repeat the silhouettes or techniques but aspires to materialise its vision of beauty and true feminity using modern technologies and garments.
The Fall 2012 collection is called Bohemiquezm because it covers all the trademarks BOHEMIQUE renowned for - bustier, garter belts, black lace, basques, underlined line of the shoulders, hips and waist, complex silhouettes and stiff designs. The brand DNA such as excessive sexiality and feminity is in every detail.
Nevetheless, BOHEMIQUE prepared several surprises. The designers expanded their clothing line and added black coats and accessories - bags and hats. Moreover, they worked for the first time with color and prints. The basques and underwear became a part of design and the shapes became more graphic.
