The Opening of 31st Season of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia took place on the 21st of October. Russian fashion guru SLAVA ZAITSEV traditionally opened MBFW Russia with the runway show of his new prêt-à-porter de luxe Spring-Summer 2016 collection Life Patterns. The collection featured flowing silhouettes, sharp lines, meticulously elaborated details along with ornamental, geometric and graphic patterns: apparently, the legendary designer decided to explore every possible option. Following the general strategy of dynastic development of his own brand, Slava Zaitsev included the YeZ by YEGORZAITSEV collection in his show. The fashion designer continued experimenting with military style, textured fabrics, and straight silhouettes. A fashion line inspired by circus aesthetics, with its bright colors and cheerful, festive hues, was demonstrated separately.
