We're delighted to present Ksenia Schnaider's AW13 collection, Bodywarmer. Inspired by the quilted cotton winter garment of the Soviet Union, Schnaider has injected style into the functionality of the warmer through her dark colour palette and use of leather, velvet and silk.
Presenting her SS13 collection with Fashion Scout in February, the designer exhibited alongside eight other Ukrainian designers as a part of our Kiev Fashion Days. Founded in 2011, the Ksenia Schnaider brand aesthetic is an innovative one that not only edges on the avant-garde, but strives to give space and freedom for the wearer to express their personal beliefs.
