Alexandre Herchcovitch

Russian dolls took to the runway at Alexandre Herchcovitch‘s Fall 2010 show on February 17th at the Salon.  For Fall, Herchcovitch used Soviet legends and folklore for his inspiration.  The cinematic influence of Georgian Director Sergei Parajanov created an Armenian undertone to the looks he sent down the runway.

The strong ethnic influence was captured by both his choice of fabrics and the crystal and chain headpieces worn over chromatic and print turbans.  There was an eclectic mix of brightly colored plaids and more somber colors typical of the former U.S.S.R.  Punk elements of fur and fishnets introduced a rock influence along with black crochet tops.  The collection had Swarovski elements sewn on old world silk prints with heavy gold chains to create a captivating poetic vision.

Some of the last looks were adorned with black trim, beading and paillettes.  A black skirt trimmed in fur and accessorized with a studded fur muff showcased the tribal influences of this cross cultural collection.  I also wanted to pay homage to the boots which added an urban mix.

After attending this show I hope that the future of fashion lies in our Soviet counterparts.
