Osome2some is a St. Petersburg-based clothing brand, founded by Anna Andrienko and Natalia Buzakova.
The story began in India where the aspiring designers headed in search of fabrics for their debut collection. Next stop was London, and the hard-working team of two hit the road to success. The designers opened a studio in Hackney Wick and received training from a pattern maker who worked at Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney. Their line was sold at Spitalfields Market, Portobello Road, Brick Lane and in selected concept stores.
In 2009 Anna and Natalia moved back to St. Petersburg to woo the refined yet sensible St. Petersburg crowd with their sophisticated outerwear designs. Evgenia Dorofeeva spoke with the awesome duo about building a successful fashion business in Russia.

We were so engrossed in this new page of our life, and it was difficult to imagine osome2some as a fully-fledged business project. To be honest, what helps us most along the way is experience and intuition.

A seductive woman stands roadside in a state of reverie, whereupon she confronts a car of equal desirability, the new S-Class. They share a beguiling, dynamic attraction and she blows the car a kiss, in a new Mercedes-Benz Fashion campaign by Carine Roitfeld.
The commercial-slash-conceptual short film called Vision Accomplished features a hot new face Sui He in a black flowing cape, designed by Carine herself, with visual references to greats like Guy Bourdin.
Mme Roitfeld had an all-star cast working with her on the project. In addition to He, whom Roitfeld included in the second issue of CR Fashion Book, V Magazine founder and long-time friend Stephen Gan, and photographers Max von Gumppenberg and Patrick Bienert also lent their expertise to the film.
