Dear Diane, Dear Shaded Viewers,
I can't give only one reason why I love Gosha Rubchinskiy, I just know that when I see his clothes I want to be a young boy and do skateboard everyday.
That's what caught my eye at first, the skate influence and how he involves young Russian skate-kids through his work, the designer is produced and distributed by Comme des Garcons and is known differently in different 'Medium', as well as a fashion designer, he is a photographer, director, and Dj.
There is this recurring raw-reality athmosphere part of his work. Some of the kids seem they got out of jail "ZEK KIDS".
Rubchinskiy ss15 collection shows street-wear casual silhouettes, in a primitive color range, with Cyrillic prints, and a very cool appropriation of different elements like faux-fur or neon pink for Menswear.
The cherry on the cake was that the "Gabber" male models had nail polish on.
Thanks Blast Magazine who let me in xx
