Chapurin launches prêt-a-porter SS collection
Nov '13
“The girl with the summer-hot lips… and the winter-cold heart’ used to describe herself Jane Russel, the last century’s 40-50’s US actress. Merlin Monroe’s Gentlemen Prefer Blondes partner, she became a sex symbol of Hollywood’s golden age. Remaining all her life very religious. She inspired CHAPURIN for this new collection.


The collection’s cut refers to the 50’s. Igor Chapurin is experimenting with lines, volume and proportions. Adding "air" on the hips he visually reduces the waist in cocktail dresses, trapeze silhouette brings graphi?s into the collection. Mini dominates in the dresses as well as in shorts-overalls.


In the new collection, the designer traditionally uses silk of different textures, brocade, combines leather and cotton in the jackets, suits and overalls. Jacquard is this collection’s leitmotif. The designer also uses crystals and a hand-embroidered heron - the original CHAPURIN’s trade-mark which this year celebrates its 15th anniversary. The show has also seen a CHAPURIN and SMILE joint project’s clutch bag.


White and black dominate the collection adding sculpturism into it, flashes of the noble red and silvery-blue symbolize its heroine’s dynamism.
