Our favorite looks from the final day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia.
After tackling the spring 2017 shows in New York, London and Milan and Paris, we’ve kept the fashion train rolling all the way through to Moscow, where the 33rd season of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia(#MBFWRussia) just wrapped up in the nation’s capital.
In 2006, Dasha Gauser quit her day job and launched her label without any outside investment, and today, her brand is a regular headliner of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. Her garments are architectural and modern, but what’s better is what goes into them — Gauser mainly uses natural fabrics, including silk, wool, linen and cotton. She specializes in accessories, too, showing unique clutches and bags alongside dresses, blouses, hoodies, trousers and more. And while this frock would’ve been exceptional on its own (note the asymmetrical sleeves!), it was the sequined cactus pin that brought out the metallic detailing on the collar and really did it for me.
I’m always a sucker for sequins, especially when used in excess (and on a slinky slip dress) — but even so, the styling of this look was the standout. Does it have you convinced that you, too, should dress down a formal frock by wearing a patterned blouse underneath? After seeing this on the runway, I’m ready to give it a shot.
