Soviet Textiles: Wearable Propaganda

What can be a more stunning example of fashion and politics going hand in hand?

These textiles were produced in limited quantities during the early years of Soviet Russia by the finest designers of that time. Despite being a manifestation of constructivism they look surprisingly modern and fun to me. I was delighted to see Tata Naka revisiting this wonderful piece of history in their F/W 2002-03 collection. Today, when everybody is crazy about prints, I hope more designers would draw inspiration from this gorgeousness!
