KSENIA_SCHNAIDER

Titled  'Protection',  Ksenia  Schnaider's  Spring/Summer  2014  collection  is  inspired  by  the  importance  of  the protective  function  of  clothing  in  a  utilitarian  and  sacred  sense.  Collars  on  clergy  dress,  military  pants, tunics  and  shirts  in  work  clothing,  lapel  badges,  rubber  bands,  square-­cut  aprons,  astronaut  suits,  long sleeves,  and  coarse  cloth.  All  of  these  elements  are  seen,  sometimes  in  only  a  very  minor  way,  throughout the  collection. Referring  to  the  theme  of  disguise  and  camouflage  in  their  previous  Spring/Summer  2013  collections, Ksenia  and  Anton  continue  to  develop  the  idea  as  a  continuous  one  in  the  present,  but  in  a  broader  sense. This  time  they  are  not  only  concerned  about  camouflage,  but  defence  as  a  whole.  This  collection  presents a  new,  simpler  black  &  white  camouflage  print,  designed  by  Anton. Ksenia  Schnaider  have  and  continue  to  create  clothing  that  aims  to  last,  ensuring  that  it  will  withstand seasons,  if  not  years.  The  designs  not  only  in  this  collection,  but  in  previous  collections  also,  therefore present  themselves  as  simple,  conscious,  and  undoubtedly  timeless.
