This Russian designer has a reputation as an avant-garde type, but his craftmanship really belongs in the luxury segment. He originally made his name in creating exquisite fur hats for Saga Furs. Elite Russian fashionistas are big fans of his clutch purses.
For the designer's presentation last month, he showed a mix of all his favorite techniques. Dramatic millinery drew from his heritage. Satins were trimmed in fur in classic luxury techniques, but the silhouettes were fresh and modern.
