LFW Chronicles: Ekaterina Kukhareva @ Fashion Scout

Ekaterina Kukhareva AW13

Ekaterina Kukhareva AW13

This year, Fashion Scout showcased many young and interesting designers, but Ekaterina Kukhareva was without doubt the most remarkable one. The Central Saint Martin’s graduate created a collection with a strong 70s’ vibe, powerful hues and a good dose of irony which was entertaining from the beginning to the end.

Titled Cul-de-sac Heroine, the collection portrayed a resourceful and sensual housewife who, tired of spending endless mornings at home,  embarked on a fantasy journey in exotic lands, coming back with plenty of beautiful clothes and kinky accessories. The designer played with opposites, joyfully alternating maxi and mini dresses, pleated and pencil skirts, skinny and loose leg trousers, providing her adventurous housewives with ample choices. From the viscose and lana wool sweaters and skirts to the light-knitted dresses, all the pieces were embellished with luxurious, Baroque prints and shiny details for a final rich, Byzantine feeling.

The �hallucinogenic’ palette included fuchsia, ruby-scarlet, emerald-green and deep violet hues, all of which reminded  of precious stones. These glamorous colours contrasted with the ironic references to the housewife’s staples hair rollers, re worked into astonishing Japanese-style headpieces realised by designer Lara Jensen.
