Seeing the level of young designers’ creativity and professionalism one might think Ukraine hasn’t recently gone through all those hard times like economic downturn, government crisis etc. How do beautiful flowers always manage to bloom in whatever dirt?
Presented below is a lookbook of Masha Reva capsule collection for Atelier 1 concept store in Kiev, Ukraine. Despite being fresh from university, Masha has many more exciting projects behind her back. I can’t wait for the next one!
This collection is about the functionality, free movement and free choice. Almost every item can be transformed into something else and worn differently, so this video instruction at the designer’s website might also be of a good help.
