INTERVIEW| Kiev Fashion Days: Sasha Kanevski

Today saw the exhibition of men and women’s designer Sasha Kanevski at the Kiev Fashion Days Exhibition in Freemasons Hall. His brand aesthetic takes inspiration from the concept of uniforms, with functionality being a key component in his designs.

His AW13 Collection is based around menswear and showcases an eclectic mix of earthy-colours, kahki and maroon to be precise, contrasted with prints derived from traditional ancient Ukrainian carpet patters. He works with a fusion of velvet, soft wool, thick silk and quilted materials which are demonstrated in his double breasted jacket, cross collar shirts and printed suits.

An important aspect of his designs is functionality, which combined with the aspect of wearability, produces distinctly sophisticated and elegant results.
